Online & Print Guidelines
Our print stories are theme driven. We will choose your work if we believe that you can provide us with a story that will meet the objectives of the theme and our aesthetic tastes. Works can be fashion driven or not. We want each issue to be diverse so we are looking for photographers and artists who are uniquely talented. We create an extensive mood board for every issue on Pinterest https://www.pinterest.com/irkmag/ to help define the level of work we are looking for and to inspire our contributors. Send all submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can submit a story that you want us to consider for a specific issue or you can send us a link to your website if you want us to select you before shooting an editorial for a specific issue.
Final Size if selected: Our magazine is A4 format 210mm x 297mm. All images need to be 300 dpi Resolution, Color sRGB - RGB (even if they are black / white), jpgs or tifs.
We appreciate a wide variety of art and photography. We are mostly a photography magazine but we accept submissions from all visual artists including fashion designers, makeup artists, graphic designers, illustrators, painters and videographers. The online stories do not need to follow the print theme but we hope you will look at our past artists and our Pinterest boards https://www.pinterest.com/irkmag/ to see the quality we are expecting. We like fashion, beauty, nudes, still lives, architecture, portraits and really crazy ideas. Please note: we don't like over retouched skin. Please submit your photos by sending us an email with your story in low resolution. A minimum of 1000 px width is required for preview. Formats: .jpg or pdfs. Send all submissions to:email@example.com. Don't hesitate to contact us if you are not sure.
Online stories offers us the best opportunity to promote our photographers/artists and to increase our community of collaborators. Also, If we want IRK, and therefore our collaborators, to grow we need to be as prolific as possible and to constantly offer fresh and exciting editorial content.
