Want to be published in Tantalum Magazine?
Before submitting a story for publication, please read the following guidelines and answers to frequently asked questions. It may seem like a lot, but we swear it will help you stay organized and help our publication speed! Tantalum Magazine does not have themes so you are free to create whatever you wish!
Editorial Length & Construction
Your editorial (fashion or beauty) must be at minimum 6 images long. We have no maximum story length. We are a unisex magazine, and encourage you to submit stories with women, men, and a combination of women and men. Please note: Tantalum Mag reserves the right to further crop, manipulate, or to cut images from the final story to fit with magazine flow.
Your story must feature multiple outfits or multiple designers. Please do not send 15 images of the same outfit thinking it’s a fashion story, it will be rejected.
Tantalum reserves the right to change the name of your editorial. While we know you love the name you have assigned your editorial, it may not fit with what we are planning for the month. Please know in advance if your editorial name does not quite fit, we will change it.
We do not pay for submissions. Any expenses or costs of your editorial are at your own risk. You can however pitch us a story and if we love the concept Tantalum Mag may exclusively provide you a pull letter. Please keep in mind that in order to keep our overhead costs at a minimum we do not provide complimentary print copies to submissions which will be featured. However, if approved we send all our contributors a hi-resolution PDF of their finished layout once issue is released to print and add to their books or sites.
SUBMISSION PROCEDURES & RESPONSIBILITIES
Submission and artist responsibilities are broken up into a two-part workflow.
Part One: Submitting for publication
Part one is seeing if your story is a cut above. To submit an editorial for publication, please do the following:
Send an email containing your images to firstname.lastname@example.org
ATTACH OR EMBED LOW RESOLUTION IMAGES in the email
Provide contact information to contact you if your submission is accepted
PLEASE DO NOT:
Send high resolution images
Do not send a .ZIP file (the images should be in your email body or attached)
Do not send submissions to any of our other emails or staff members they will not be read and will be deleted. Only send submissions to email@example.com
Part Two: Acceptance
If Tantalum Magazine chooses your submission for publication we will respond to you as quickly as possible to notify you (1 - 5 days). Please note that selected stories must be exclusive to Tantalum Magazine. Once the issues (Fashion & Beauty) are full we close them and move on to the next month. We normally work 2 months ahead so its imperative we receive requested materials promptly.
Tantalum Mag requires both clothing and artistic credits. A lack of true and proper credits seriously jeopardizes the credibility of both the magazine and your work, so please keep this in mind. If you need more time to pull credits, please seriously consider delaying your submission.
Please know that due to the volume of editorials we receive that we only respond to those that we accept. If you send us an editorial and do not hear back from us, chances are your editorial was not accepted. We encourage you to keep submitting your stories for future issues.
Your responsibilities after acceptance
If your editorial is accepted a staff member of tantalum will email you with a detailed PDF of instructions for proper image, link and interview submission. You're approved editorial will be in the print and online editions of Tantalum Mag.
XOXO Team Tan!
