If you’ve always dreamed of having your photo grace the front cover of a fashion magazine, guess what? It ‘only’ costs $430.
The U.S.-based Sheeba Magazine is currently inviting photographers to apply to be selected for its magazine cover. Here’s the graphic that’s being used to advertise this opportunity:
Sheeba Magazine “can make your dream come true.”
The Front Cover Application page provides a low-down on the process, and a Rules & Conditions page provides some more detail.
Submitted photos can’t already be published in your portfolio or social media. If Sheeba Magazine chooses to honor your image by using it for their cover photo, you agree to pay the magazine (yup, not the other way around) a fee of $430 through PayPal. You’re also saving 50% off that fee, because apparently the regular price charged to photographers is $860.
And after you send your exclusive high-resolution file along with a signed “Release and Publication Agreement,” the magazine will even send you high-resolution tear-sheet(s) and a copy of the printed magazine that has your cover photo.
Sounds like a good deal… right?
