CliQ MAGAZINE HAS A HISTORY TO BE PROUD OF!
NM CliQ Magazine, began it's three year run as a local/regional publication to provide a venue to present the talents of local photographers, models, artists, and designers to the rest of the world. It was, and continues to be purely a labor of love by Editor-in-Chief/Publisher Dave Stabley.
In the beginning, the magazine was HUGE, sometimes upwards of 150 pages because it included photo sets from many of the photographers, as well as FREE advertising from photographers, models and HMUAs, in an effort to help them promote their businesses. Eventually, it became obvious that due to the volume of additional pages from these free ads, the cost of a printed copy of the magazine was prohibitive for those who wished to own one, so the ads were discontinued.
NM CliQ Magazine changed printing companies and with that move, went from a European A4 format to a US standard 8.5" x 11" format and became limited to 60 pages to make it more affordable for those who wished to have a printed hard copy. This continues to be the format for the magazine today. Printed issues currently sell for $15 a copy (plus shipping).
At the beginning of 2018, it was obvious that the magazine was seriously in need of a major make-over - while free readership continued to be high, magazine print purchases were nearly non-existent. Since the magazine had no paid advertising, there were virtually no revenues with which to cover normal monthly expenses related to its publication.
After a seven month hiatus, the all new, CliQ Mag International was born, designed to appeal to a more international audience. The new magazine actively seeks out photographers and artists from around the world and features them in fewer, yet more expansive photo sets per issue. Also new is the addition of up to ten pages of paid advertising to help offset the expense of publication and promotion.
We think you are going to like the new changes and would love to hear from you. If you have ideas or suggestions that you think might help us improve the magazine, please put it in the CONTACT box at the bottom of every page and send it off to us. We promise to review it and respond.
