What does unpublished mean?

It means that your work cannot have been published anywhere else. That means not on your website, no Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Flickr, DeviantArt, WordPress–– you get the picture. This, as well, means absolutely no publication in other magazines (online or print).

When will I hear back from you?

We try our very hardest to reply to everyone, but sadly we receive so many emails, it would be impossible for us to answer everyone. If your submission has been accepted, we’ll let you know usually within two weeks. If it hasn’t, we try to let you know, but if you don’t hear from us, assume it has been unsuccessful. For any questions you ask, we try to get back to you within the week.

How can I be featured on the Atlas’ blog?

Send all inquiries regarding your Web Editorial to our web editor Jasmin Rauha at: web@theatlasmagazine.com

How can I get tear sheets?

We can email you digital tear sheets. Pop us a message!

Do you provide pull letters for stylists?

No, we do not currently provide pull letters unless we are commissioning a shoot ourselves.

Can you please send me a copy of the magazine after it’s out?

Sadly we can’t offer any free copies to our contributors. We wish we could but Atlas is a start up still and we are sure you’ll agree with us when we say that it’s better for us to get the copies distributed and seen by as many people as possible. Fingers crossed some time in the future this won’t be the case anymore! We appreciate that you trust us with your work.

Can you please pay me for my submission? And can you cover my shoot costs?

We can’t cover any of the costs of your submission we’re afraid, but we will credit you and your entire team. All the copyright of the images will always remain with you. We are here to help you get further in your careers and if we can one day pay you all, we will.

Can I have the cover of the magazine please?

We never decide on the cover before have all the work in at the end of the submission process. The cover of the magazine is probably the most important part of it all because it’s going to be what sells it! This process also gives every single photographer who submits to us an equal chance at a cover. 🙂
