Photo Quality - Photographers take note !

 

  • Ask yourself would Glamour, Vogue, or Cosmo approve this photo… It must be magazine-level quality
  • We accept Glamour Photos, Fashion Photos, Landscape Photos and Composite Photos.
  • We do not approve blurry photos, especially if it’s the face.
  • We do not approve photos that are too dark or blown out.
  • Do Not Vignette your photos, we reject these.
  • Do Not Brand your photos, we reject these.
  • Please use the rule of thirds for composition. Compositions with lack of skill are not accepted.
  • We do not allow nudity or implied nudity.
  • We get several dozen submissions per issue and usually use 10--12 of those, so quality is paramount.
  • It is far better to submit 50 photos than 10, it gives us more selection to choose from.
  • Your photos must be retouched, the other option is our retouch service which we charge for.
  • Bad Retouch, blurring the skin too much, bad technique, can also disapprove a set of photos.

Can I have a Cover?

 

  • Almost every model and photographer that submits asks for a cover, we are well aware that you want one.
  • Each month from the dozens of sets submitted we chose the highest quality photo set, and sexiest model for our cover.
  • Many of our cover photographers are Pro Photographers, even Master Class Trainers, however we always make allowances for amazing photos!

 

 Common Submission Questions:

 

  • Am I allowed to post these photos on Facebook or social media as well? – Yes you can, CliQ Mag International  is a non-exclusive magazine. However, we would prefer you wait until AFTER the magazine issue you are submitting for is released.
  • If I have an amazing set of photos from 4 years ago, can I submit them? Yes, there is no age restriction on photos.
  • I submitted my photos but they didn’t get used, how come? This is because we get hundreds of submissions and can only choose 10-12 sets, based on quality.
  • Can I share my CliQ Mag International  Published Photos on Social Media, Yes, we will even provide you with digital Tear Sheets upon request.
  • Is there a limit to how much I can submit? No, you could literally submit 100 sets, which we would use over time if the quality is good.
  • So do you want only 10 photos or is it better to submit you 40-50? The more photos you send us, the more variety we can pick from, better to send more.
  • I am not good at Photoshop retouch, can I send you untouched photos? Typically No, ask us about our retouch service, as untouched photos are never used.
  • We do provide a retouch service, if you need us to retouch your photos to magazine quality. There is a small fee involved. You will have to ask us.

  • Size & Quality – Most important – Magazine Quality photos at a printable resolution. larger than 3000 x 5000 pixels is normal.
