January’s theme is announced on December 1, and January issue goes live starting January 1). Submissions outside of the theme are welcome as long as they are in season and/or are current.

In the subject line, please indicate the title of your work, the theme (if applicable), and the relevant season (if applicable).

Submissions and social media features are unpaid at this time. Any work that is accepted for publication is done on a trade-for-publication (TFP) basis, and contributors are not entitled to any additional compensation or royalty for their work once it has been published.  If your work is accepted for publication, you will be provided with the corresponding link to your feature on the website.  Any expenses associated with shoot are your own responsibility.

Because of the high volume of submissions we receive, we’re unable to respond to all inquiries (although we will do our best to get back to you!) For any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out directly.  See complete submissions guidelines and full terms & conditions below as well as the Contributor Work Agreement.


EDITORIALS

Editorials are fashion and beauty photography spreads exclusive to the website www.monachopsismag.com. Submissions are required to have a minimum of four (4) different looks to be considered.  For fashion spreads, we prefer to feature labels and designers as opposed to mainstream pieces (i.e., H&M, Forever 21); however, using fast fashion garments does not automatically disqualify your work.  Please be advised that we do not accept “stylist’s own” for wardrobe credits. We request that photographers submit photos as individual high-res JPG, PDF or TIFF images as well as a separate editable document indicating all wardrobe, products, and team credits. When submitting wardrobe credits, we request that photographers please be specific. We cannot distinguish “look 1” from “look 5,” so we request a visual example of each look in order to avoid confusion. Be as detailed with wardrobe credits as possible (ex. Instead of “top by Gucci” write “black and white patterned chiffon blouse by Gucci”). Submissions sent without credits will not be considered for publication. Editorials are not necessarily required to adhere to monthly themes; however, we do expect them to be in season.

Monachopsis reserves the right to edit, modify, or alter images in accordance with layout and design needs without notifying the contributor(s) of these changes.  This includes, but is not limited to, adding borders, cropping, saturating, and brightening the images.

If your editorial has been selected for publication, we will notify you via email with the publication date, and we will need you to sign and return the Contributor Work Agreement as well as a Model Release Form for each model featured. If we do not receive these documents within the specified time frame, your work will not be published.
