Atlas Magazine - Submissions Based Fashion Magazine Changes 2


Caleb Alvarado

When we printed The Brisk Issue, Atlas’ first ever proper printed issue, we had never been more excited. Being lovers of publications our whole lives, nothing made us feel more proud than being able to hold our creation in our hands. We knew that it was going to be difficult to sustain, but we wanted to give it our best shot. We raised funds, worked our hardest, and successfully produced 5 separate issues of Atlas; the last of which we also distributed worldwide. What an incredible feeling! Nothing has beaten how amazing it’s felt to see people all over the world holding copies of Atlas in their hands.
We understand though that the world is a digital place. The world now fits in the palm of your hand. Digital content is everywhere, it’s accessible, it’s worldwide–– it’s Atlas. Atlas has been, and always will be, about sharing the work of talented creatives from around the world. We don’t care where you’re from, how old you are, or what your background is. If the talent is there, we want to share your work. That’s our ultimate goal. Thankfully, through our various platforms on social media, the digital magazines, and also the print magazines, we’ve been able to do that. We want to continue to do that. And we will.
Atlas is advancing. Although there are changes to come, nothing is really changing. We’re still here to share your work, to give you the platform that you all crave so dearly, and we’re still here to provide inspiration for our thousands and thousands of readers. We will continue to produce four beautiful, inspiring digital issues a year, which will be free for you all to read whenever and wherever you like. For anyone who wants to be able to hold a copy of Atlas in their hands, the option will still be there, only it will be done on a print on demand basis. We will also continue to bring you daily content on our website.
Our next issue, The Timeless Issue, will go on as planned for release in September 2016, followed by the The Aura Issue in December. The Opulence Issue will be moved to our March 2017 issue. The Timeless Issue will also be available in print on demand, and to download.
Thank you all so much for your support. The past two years of having Atlas in print have been so incredible, we’ll look back on them fondly forever. We couldn’t have done it without you.
