Our team will curate the submissions we feel best represent our mission and vision. When submitting your work, please keep the following in mind:

  • Please, provide JPEG thumbnails of the work you are submitting for consideration and links to your website/portfolio, and social media pages.
  • Submissions are not guaranteed to be featured in an upcoming issue or online feature, and we will do our best to keep you informed about our decisions regarding your submission. Decisions are based on the quality of submissions, and space available in the magazine. The issue that your editorial might be considered for may be also subject to change.

If the photoshoot includes an article, minimum word count is 600 words.
  • For creative art submissions: please include the name of the artists, photography, materials and techniques used to create the art, as well as the article you would like to submit for review. Minimum word count is 600 words.
  • For travel submissions: please include thumbnails of the photography, name of locations, hotels, attractions, etc, and article to accompany the photos. Minimum word count is 600 words.

If your work is considered for publishing, please keep the following in mind:

  • We will reach out to you requesting high definition photos before making a final decision. This will ensure that your work meets our guidelines for online publishing or printing. 
  • All images must be submitted in high resolution JPEG, 300-450dpi RGB & CMYK, minimum size of 10mb.
  • Cover selection is chosen by our Guild Team for each print issue.
  • Though copyright of your work will always belong to you, we require for you to sign a release form before publishing your work. Guild Magazine reserves the right to use your work for advertising of our publication, while always doing our best to credit your work at all times possible.
  • Image selection and layout is determined by us and our team of graphic designers. At times, we might need to crop images or use text over them. Also, keep in mind we might not use all images provided.
  • We do not provide free print copies, as presently the publication is printed exclusively as on-demand-print. We do not pay for submissions. All photoshoot expenses for a submission to the magazine is covered by the team conducting the project. You will be provided with a digital PDF of your featured article, along with the cover of the issue and the table of contents. 
  • Any submissions accepted by Guild Magazine should ONLY be featured with Guild Magazine. If we find out otherwise, your submission will be removed from our website and social media pages, and future plans for it to be featured in our print issue will be canceled.

Agents: if you would like one of your talents to be featured, please provide us with their latest profile/resume or press release.
