SUBMISSIONS

PLAYHAUS MAGAZINE LOVES submissions and provides the opportunity to have your work featured in a digital and print publication, in addition to being featured in our news. We are highly interested in:

A.    Exclusive editorials for our print issues (seasonal)

B.     Exclusive editorials featured our website (no theme, all year round)

C.     Editorials shot for other publications, to showcase them to our readers

Please be sure to read the requirements submissions before you submit work. Please keep in mind we are a MEN’S magazine.

EXCLUSIVE WEB EDITORIALS

We take submissions all year round! Web editorials do not have to have a theme and we love to accept new work.

1.      For web exclusives, they should have AT LEAST 5 looks and still be original. Please be sure to send at least 10 photos with 5 different looks.  Please send us the photos INSIDE your email. If we are interested, you will be asked to email JPEG photos via WeTransfer.

2.      Please be sure to clearly state all wardrobe credits by image file name so that we can easily distinguish which look goes with which images. Please include model agency information as well. Please be sure all credits are correct and fully listed.

3.      While PlayHaus loves talent, all fashion editorials, beauty stories, and fashion videos must be exclusive. Fashion, portraiture, art, and culture work submitted must be unpublished—work previously shown on social media sites will not be accepted.
Content submitted to PlayHaus must be completely unpublished: no websites, social media, other magazines, Facebook, etc. Should you post your work before you submit the editorial to us or even before the magazine publishes it, we reserve the right to pull your editorial.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

·         Please refrain from posting approved images or stories online prior to the launch of the issue. We reserve the right to pull the story should you do so.

·         We are not liable for costs, if any, occurred at your shoot. Please only carry out a shoot if you can financially afford to.

·         Commissioning letters do not guarantee the publishing of your editorial. The editor will make the final decision. Decisions are based on the quality of submission and space available in the magazine. The issue that your editorial will be published in may also be subject to change. If you need a pull letter, please e-mail us the date of your shoot, the photographer’s name, and the name of the stylist (or whoever is doing the pull).

·         Please stick to the deadline and have arranged model release forms where appropriate.
Should you be unhappy with any of the points brought up, please discuss them with us prior to submitting.

·         When submitting files, please attach them INSIDE your e-mail. Please send a zip file of your JPEG images via www.wetransfer.com (for online posts and editorials). For print editorials, final images must be 8.5” x 11” TIFF.

·         Please be patient. We receive a lot of submissions and try to review everything and get back to people in a timely manner. On occasion however, we do get overloaded and it may take up to a week. Before submitting to us, please keep this in mind especially if you intend to submit your work to more than one publication in addition to us. The last thing we would want is to miss out on a great spread because it was promised to someone else before we could get to it.

·         By allowing PlayHaus to publish your work, you grant us permission to use your work in any of our publications, websites, marketing material, advertisements, videos, and any other mediums or formats used in the creation and dissemination of PlayHaus content.
