GUIDELINES

Please read through the below guidelines prior to submitting.

Please DO NOT email us submissions.

MYSSFIT SUBMISSION BASICS

  • We are looking for completed sets that match the theme of the submission.

  • DO NOT EMAIL SETS. Emailed submissions will immediately be disqualified. Submit using form below.

  • DO NOT SUBMIT SCREENSHOTS OR CELL PHONE IMAGES.

  • Open to all genders, races, shapes, sizes, colors, LGBQT+ friendly.

  • Must be 18+ to submit. In some cases, we may ask for a form of identification. We only accept 18+ because sometimes the art portrayed (such as implied nudity, boudoir) is not considered suitable for anyone under the age of 18+ within the United States.

  • If you are submitting multiple models of different sets for the same theme, please give each model their own submission or this can cause a lot of confusion.

  • Photographer's are required to sign a release form. Model's if you are submitting, please provide them with the link below to complete.

  • We do not pay for submissions at this time.

MYSSFIT IMAGE STANDARDS

  • You can submit 2-5 images from the same set/theme. A maximum of 4 images and a minimum of 2 images will be selected.

    • Please do not email asking us which image(s) we selected. We like leaving this as a surprise. 😉

    • You may submit more images if you provide us a Google Drive or Drop box link.

  • Images must be at least 8.5" x 11" at 300 DPI in JPG or PNG formats.

    • JPEG images will not work, so please double check your files. We don't have time to convert every image submitted.

    • Please do not stretch images to meet the dimensions. This will ruin the quality of your submission.

    • Please rename your file to the models name. This assists us when we review and download all files.

  • Please remove watermarks, copyright notices, or other forms of text. Rest assured, ALL contributors WILL be credited within the completed issue.

  • Please remove or blur other brands from images otherwise they will not be considered for publishing.

    • Example, if you are drinking from a glass soda bottle, remove the label, or find another way to disguise the brand. If you are wearing a popular clothing brand and the label is showing, find a creative way to disguise it.

  • We do allow images that contain more than one model (group images). Please be sure to indicate all names and credits upon submission.

  • Implied nudity is okay, however they must be suitable for delivery to all communities and countries.

  • Props including weaponry, alcohol, and cigarettes are discouraged, however if you feel that it works with the theme, blur/remove brands from the image. However, we cannot guarantee it will be selected.

  • Cannabis related products: At this time, we are unable to publish images portraying the use of cannabis products. Since we are located in Ohio where recreational marijuana is not legal, doing this can be considered a form of advertisement. We are currently working to see what we need to do to allow these images in the future. 

COVERS:

We do not make promises, or guarantees for cover selection. We do not and will not accept payment to be on the cover. The cover image is collectively decided upon after reviewing ALL submissions for the month after the closing date. 

How can I increase my chances of being selected for a cover?

  1. We look for covers that are in the above mentioned formatting and that best match the theme.

  2. We only accept portrait images for the cover, so be sure to provide a variety upon submission.

  3. We prefer images with a decent amount of negative space to allow for text. It's our rule of thumb to avoid covering the artwork in the image and like to keep it simple.

  4. We like receiving 5 different images of the same set. But you may submit more if you can provide us with a Google Drive or Dropbox link.

  5. Think outside of the box!

  6. You can review past covers by clicking the 'issues' link in our menu bar. 

  7. Yes, we accept group images for covers.

MYSSFIT CREDIT STANDARDS

  • When submitting, please credit all contributors who participated in the shoot. This information is essential for publication.

  • Credits will be published exactly as submitted. We copy and paste credits. Any errors are not our responsibility.

  • Please use proper-case and double-check to make sure all credit information is accurate BEFORE you click submit.

  • Please include the photographers' name/business, models' name, hair and makeup artist, stylist (if applicable). This information is essential for publication. 

  • We require a photographer release prior to publishing. See below.

PHOTOGRAPHER RELEASE:

Once an image is accepted to be published, an email will be sent to the creative team for the Photographer to complete a release form. This grants us the permission to use the Photographer's work in any of our publications, websites, videos, marketing pieces, advertisements,  and any other mediums or formats used in the creation, dissemination, and monetization of Myssfit Magazine. If we see your images are fit for further promotion, you will be notified by email.

DEADLINE:

 

  • All submission deadlines are posted at the top of this page, within our theme calendar and on Facebook and Instagram. 

 

  • We will not accept submissions following the deadline. We provide enough advanced notice to plan your shoots and submit by the deadline. Our form is set to automatically close at 9 PM EST the day of the deadline. We recommend starting the submission process no later than 8:45 PM EST the day of the deadline. The form can close on you in the middle of your session if the clock strikes 9 PM EST. To prevent this, please submit as early as possible.

IF ACCEPTED:

  • Those accepted will receive an email 1-2 days following our deadline date.

  • Photographers are REQUIRED to sign a release. We will not publish without their approval. See above for direct links for those forms.

  • Please check the feature list for credits and ensure all information is accurate.

  • If you saw your name on the accepted list on our Facebook announcement, but did not receive an email, that means the email provided was invalid. Please email us ASAP at myssfitmagazinellc@gmail.com for details.

  • Please do not inquire what or how many images were accepted. As mentioned above, we like leaving that as a surprise.

IF REJECTED: 

  • There is little or no space left for the issue submitted for.

  • The model was under the age of 18.

  • Work was submitted after the deadline.

  • Submission was emailed.

  • The image appears to be "warped", or stretched. 

  • The quality of the images aren’t to our standard. (i.e. blurry, cropped, incorrect dimensions, bad resolution, warped image of subject(s))

  • The submission did not fit the theme for the issue. We only have the form open for one theme at a time to prevent any overlap.

  • The submission contained cellphone edited "selfies" or screen shots. It's not that we don't want to publish you, but we can't print these images to meet your expectations. They will appear pixelated, warped, and in poor color.

 

Although your rejection could be due to any of the above stated reasons, we unfortunately are unable to provide critiques due to time constraints. We highly recommend joining our Facebook Group for friendly critiques from our amazing community of creatives.

Where can I purchase a copy?:

  • Digital copies are provided free at the time of release to those who sign up as a Myssfit Member.

  • Full sized issues (8'x10') will be available via Magcloud.

  • The purchase link will be posted on our Facebook page on the day of release, linked on our website , and sent via email. 

  • We recommend creating a Magcloud account and following us for updates.

  • If you have issues with your Magcloud order, you must contact Magcloud Customer Service. We unfortunately do not have access to order or customer information.
