NEXT EXCLUSIVE ISSUE:

CONFASHION MAGAZINE: EXCLUSIVE ISSUE NO. 12

JULY 2015

THEME: OPEN AIR!

Winter go away! The spring is coming any day now and warmer days are coming with her. Streets will be filled with people craving for sun, trees will bloom and we - like every year - will have butterflies in our stomachs. First bike ride, first outdoor photoshoot, first sunbathing on the lawn - isn't that enough to be happy?

Of course it is! That is why this issue will be all about happy, frivolous and full of smiles editorials!

We want to see joy and fun with form. Have fun with techniques, let your imagination go! You feel like doing collage? Go for it! Let the look and make-ups be so colorful, that they make us smile! We want to show happy people - but the happiness have many faces! Full smile or just the spark in the eyes - it's up to you!

The very last deadline to submit applications: 15th March 2015, 24:00 GMT +2:00

REGULAR SUBMISSIONS (WEB):

Confashion Magazine wants to promote young artists and therefore we particularly appreciate emerging artists, photographers, bloggers, journalists, fashion designers, and other artists associated with the industry.


PHOTOGRAPHERS:


If you want your photos to be published either on Confashion website or in the exclusive issue, send us an email (antonina[at]confashionmag.pl) which should include a JPG sample photos from the editorial for publication and all information about used clothes and the team behind the editorial. If your submission qualifies for publication we will contact you and inform you about next steps.

Before you start - few tips which will help you in preparing the publication!

Yes, we are fond of controversial topics! However, they have to be presented uniquely, like e.g. McQueen did it. Don’t approach the topic in a clichéd way. A lesbian scene won’t guarantee publication. For us, fashion is art – if you think alike show it in your photos!

We want to provide our readers with exceptional and unique material, so we expect premiere photo shoots. Exceptions may occur – on the condition that we really like the shoot.

Clothes and accessories used in the shoot should come from emerging and independent designers and brands (it may happen though that we will be knocked out by an outstanding look from chain stores).

There is no leading theme for sessions which appear online. However, while preparing for publication take into account current trends and season. If there are special requirements in the issue (e.g. exclusive issue), we will inform you in advance on our website and Facebook fan page. For this reason, we ask you to keep up to date with the posts in “exclusive issue” bookmark.


Technical specifications:

 

  • The editorial should be sent as individual JPEG file attachments sized up to 1200 pixels wide with a resolution of 100dpi.
  • If the order of photographs is important – please name the files properly.
  • Please attach a short description and the title of your shoot. Our graphic team will take care of the final look of the publication – there is no need you should do it. However, any suggestions are welcomed and should be included in the submission.
  • We are aware that a whole team of people is responsible for the success of the shoot, so please attach names of all people (and their functions) who took part in the project.
  • Remember that if a model works for any agency – you should also attach its name.
  • Remember to sign the files with appropriate designers’ names so that we can easily match the looks with the photos.
  • If you have your own website or Facebook, Google+ fan page – attach the link so that we can recommend it to our readers.
  • In the mail subject please write your NAME and SURMANME as well as the TITLE of the shoot.
  • If you want to submit vertical photos – make sure they all are of the same width and height. Cropping images is tiring for us and delays publication! :)
  • Submissions should be sent to antonina[at]confashionmag.pl

We ask you for patience – we know that you may want to send you submission to other magazines and we will do our best to look at your shoot and send you the answer as soon as possible.
Out of formality, please include the following disclosure: "I accept terms of cooperation provided on www.confashionmag.pl and i permit to publish sent materials, free of charge on the website, in exclusive issue of the magazine, in the marketing materials, as well as on the social media. I declare that i am the author of sent materials or i have legal rights to use them and to grant permission to publish them in Confashion Magazine. I also have permission from people, whose image is included in the materials and in case of any dispute I relieve Confashion Magazine from making any changes claimed by those people."


JOURNALISTS, EDITORS, BLOGGERS

If you want your texts (articles, columns, interviews) to be published either on our website or in the exclusive issue, please send the submission containing a DOC file with your text (for online publication) or a sample text (for the publication in exclusive issue) to: redakcja[at]confashionmag.pl.

Before you start - few tips which will help you in preparing the publication!

Oh yes – we love controversial topics! We value people who are not afraid to say what they think about the world of fashion, provide fair criticism for those commonly praised and praise those unappreciated and unrated.

We perceive fashion as a form of art – if you share our opinion, show it in you writing!
We reject commerce, so first of all we are looking for niche topics. We value those who hunt high and low for interesting subjects, can attract others with their words and offer more than other fashion websites. We love creative and individual people who swim against the mainstream!

If you have your own blog, don’t send submissions with texts which have already appeared on you site. Create something special for us! If you attract the readers with your writing they will surely visit your blog in the future!

As for topics, we move around interesting and emerging persons in fashion industry, season’s trends, fashion-related professions, and latest collections and shows, etc. If any of these topics is particularly close to you and your writing fulfils our requirements, we may offer you a regular editorial cooperation.

Technical specifications:

 

  • Texts for publication should take the form of a column and be about one A4 page long.
  • If you are interested in a publication in the exclusive issue, your texts should be about 3 A4 pages long and can take such forms as: column, article, report or their variations. The themes for exclusive issues are available in “exclusive issue” bookmark.
  • If you include photos in you writing – provide the source and the author of the photo.
  • If you have your own website or Facebook, Google+ fan page – attach the link so that we can recommend it to our readers.
  • If you are interested in regular cooperation, in the first submission show us who you are: write about your experience and the topics you would like to write about.
  • In the mail subject please write your NAME and SURMANME with a note: blogger/ editor / journalist

Please bear in mind that we are taking the first steps, therefore, if some of our processes still need improvements we ask you for understanding.
