Ever wondered what happens when you send publications to magazines in hopes of getting published? Are you connecting the right work to the right magazine? Do you pay the magazine to showcase your work on a 1/4 spread of a magazine page? Or do you pay the magazine so your image can be on their next front cover publication?
So many questions come to mind on what should be done and how to go through the proper channels for submission.
I will relate a short story that happened to me not so long ago about submissions to online magazines.
Since I am currently in the Re-branding stages of my business I decided to start everything from scratch. My IG feed wiped clean, my website, and so on. During my course of uploading my portfolio images onto my IG page, many new followers and likes started to rise with each image.
Comments were coming in hot as I kept uploading content, all fun and promising. It was when I got a DM from an Online magazine (not disclosing their name) in good faith of not causing bad reputation to their brand.
