Obscurae Magazine is made up of many different forms of content sharing with social media like; Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. We produce a print magazine and digital format every month. If you would like to be a part of any of these, please read our submission guidelines for each one.
NOTE: We do not give out free copies, or pay for shoots. Please keep this in mind when arranging a shoot for the magazine we, however, do give out pull letters if needed.
What we look for: We look for High Fashion/Artistic Fashion/Unique Fashion/Editorials. All pieces must be top quality to be accepted. Examples can be seen here: https://www.pinterest.com/obscuraemag/submissions-examples/
Please send submissions in PDF format to email@example.com before the final submission deadline. Please make the subject of your email: “Obscurae Magazine Print Submission.” We will not download WeTransfer or Dropbox files in the submission phase. All photo’s must be edited when sent in for review. If images are not edited when sent in for review we will pass on the set. You can also use our KAVYAR link and have a swift easy upload in seconds https://kavyar.com/obscurae-magazine
Our themes are always open and never restrictive. Our deadline usually hits on the first of the month but since our submission email is always full we usually pass the deadline early so we suggest to submit as soon as possible.
Obscurae Magazine is now a quarterly magazine. We only publish in the Summer – Fall – Winter – Spring.
All Obscurae Magazine submissions must be unpublished. There are no exceptions to this, exclusivity is an absolute.
In fashion editorials, there must be at least four outfit changes. Beauty needs at least 3 different makeup looks, editorials at least three different looks, poses, outfits, stories, etc. Artist/Unique fashion stories please be unique with your pieces.
Please include all team credits in a word document with your download; this includes wardrobe.
Submissions will be accepted or declined as they come in. We receive a large amount of emails every open submission so we cannot send a rejection email. If you do not hear back from us within two weeks, please take this as an unsuccessful submission, but do not feel that you cannot submit again at a later date.
If your work is accepted, please send us high resolution files at 300 dpi sized for A4 in CMYK via WeTransfer or Dropbox. The images must all be clear of text or graphics, unless otherwise stated. We hold the right to drop editorials if they no longer fit the magazine. Also please remove all watermarks when sending your full resolution images. The release form will tell you specific sizes needed for the magazine if you need specific sizes for your images.
We will run 4 to 6 images a story.
Please do not ask for cover all cover slots are taken in advance.
Once your set is published we will give you three days to inform us of any credit errors if you do not inform us within those three days they will not be corrected.
Webtorials are closed at this time. We will be sure to update everyone once they open again.
