WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
We're looking for editorial submissions which showcase clear artistic and photographic talent, contain trendsetting (not just trendy) fashions, are styled in interesting and creative ways, and have a clearly-recognizable story woven throughout. The content should fit the Babiekins aesthetic and not have been published, posted, shared, or displayed elsewhere. We want content that’s fresh, original, and trendsetting!
COMPENSATION & TERMS
Babiekins Magazine does not currently pay for unsolicited submissions. Any expenses or costs are the responsibility of the contributor unless hired prior to the project by the Babiekins team. We also cannot guarantee that content submitted will be used on the blog, on social media, the website, digital or print formats.
Any content you submit to Babiekins Magazine must NOT be published in any other magazine, blog, website, e-zine, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, other social media network, or anywhere else online for anyone to view. If you make your submission -- or any outtakes from your submission -- public at any point or in any form before we present the content online via any of our platforms, we reserve the right to pull the content from our platforms in its entirety without notice and without your consent.
While we do allow simultaneous submissions (i.e., you are permitted to submit this content to other publishing outlets at the same time you submit to Babiekins), you agree that your right to simultaneous submission is terminated at the point Babiekins accepts your content for publication on any of our platforms. Acknowledging our intent to publish your submitted content means that you agree you will pull any submissions of that content you may have outstanding with other publishing outlets, and you agree to no longer submit that content, or any outtakes from that content, to any other publication, media outlet, or platform of any kind. Once you receive our notice of intent to publish your submission, whether in our print, digital, or web platforms, you understand that form that point forward we retain exclusive publishing rights to that content. You agree you will not submit that content for publication elsewhere in any form.
After we have published your submitted content via the intended Babiekins platform -- congratulations! -- you are free to share the content via your personal web and social media platforms. As stated above, however, we do retain exclusive publishing rights and you understand that you are no longer free to submit any portion of the content, including outtakes, to other any other publishing outlets, including web- and digital-base platforms. If you have a specific request you feel should be an exception to this policy, please contact us directly and we will review on a case-by-case basis.
We will not tolerate any form of plagiarism or copying in whole or in part. If it is discovered that any part of your submission is not your original work, we reserve the right to pull the content from our platforms in its entirety without notice and without your consent. If it is discovered that any part of your submission has been published on a platform other than Babiekins following your receipt of Babiekins intent to publish, we reserve the right to pull the content from our platforms in its entirety without notice and without your consent.
