By submitting, you are stating that you have permission/authorizations and all clearances to submit items to Elan Vital Magazine (online and print) and all of our media partners/collaborators for media distribution. We, including our media partners/collaborators, are held blameless for any and all disputes which arise out of your submissions, read or unread. Elan Vital Magazine is not responsible for any cost associated with the production of your submission. Unfortunately, we will NOT be able to send out complimentary DIGITAL issues your work is featured in. Photography/Video Submissions: By allowing Elan Vital Magazine to publish your work, you grant us permission to use your work in any of our publications, websites, marketing material, advertisements, videos, social media, and any other mediums or formats used in the creation and dissemination of Elan Vital Magazine content.
During the selections process, you agree to keep your submissions private until notified by Elan Vital Magazine if you have been accepted or not. This process normally does not take longer than 60 days. Any set submitted that is shown to have been publicly placed online anywhere, or published in a different publication, will automatically be rejected with no notice. We understand artists get excited about the work they’ve created, so we ask that if you post teasers of a set you are submitting, do not include those with your submission.
(yes, each issue for Volume 2 will have a theme – this does not mean you have to shoot a specific style, i.e. you can submit a bodypaint feature if it matches the theme of the month, or avant garde, or fashion, etc.)
WHAT EVERYONE ASKS ABOUT!
Magazine Payouts are a commission based payout and they earn 4% profits generated from the sale of the issue they are published in, in a single payment, being within 30 business days following the month of the release. For example, if your work is published in June, your payout period would be based on all sales earned between June 20-June 30 and you would receive funds typically between 10-20 business days after the first business day in July. Some platforms have longer payout times (up to 90 days after publication), and in those cases, any sales made on those platforms will be retroactively applied during the time period earned (Date of release to end of the month the issue is released in).
Elan Vital Magazine features 5 external submissions each month in the magazine and up to 4 external submissions for the website. This is in addition to any of our staff features and internally produced work.
Selections are based on quality of photography and quality of the modeling, mixed with quality of makeup and wardrobe as well as articles turned in.
*****NOTE: We will currently not be paying contributors for website features. While this saddens us deeply and we are regretful in doing so as it goes against our creed, we are unable to make enough profit from magazine sales to do so any longer. Once we begin having advertisements on the website (very few, as we don’t want to be one of “those” sites, we will be able to go back to paying website contributors).
