Tuesday Tip: Publication!

You took hours and hours to make a fantastic project. Then you take a less than stellar photo of the finished piece. When an editor is browsing through hundreds of submissions, your project won't stand out any better than someone who made a bad project and took a great photo. Your photography should be equal to your project--GREAT!

  1. Thank you so much for the tip Jennifer! But I do have another question for you. Do I have to write the list of supplies down for each project submitted or can I provide the list later? In other words, will they pick a project that didn't have the supplies list included in the submission? Thank you so much!

  2. Thanks for the tip Jennifer! I also have another question. When submitting photos, is it best to just send one full view of the project, or do you also send some detail shots along with it? Thanks for the help!:)

  3. Anya, very few editors look at the supply list initially. It is usually required at the end. However, in the past some submission forms do require the supply lists so follow that magazines procedure every time.

  4. Amanda,

    One full great photo is all that is necessary unless it's an album. Then sending in the photos of the inner pages is a good idea. Make sure your photos are around 500k. Anything larger takes the system forever to open up.
