Please ensure you read all of the information on this page BEFORE sending a submission into Southern Sass Publications. Sending a submission confirms your agreement with the following guidelines. Upon reviewing/receiving submissions, Southern Sass Publications reserves the right to accept or deny any submission we receive. Submissions are reviewed based on its content, quality, relevance and the availability of space in the issue under current publication.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Southern Sass Publications holds to a strict editing & quality control policy and due to the high amount of submissions received we are not able to reply to every one. If you are not chosen, please feel free to submit at another time. The deadline for submissions is the 15th of each month; the release date is 1st of the following month. Both Sassy Couture and Southern Sass Magazines are published monthly.

ALL WORK MUST BE EXCLUSIVE AND UNPUBLISHED.

Southern Sass Publications only take exclusive, previously unpublished photos; this includes on Facebook or any other social media website. By submitting your photos, you are giving us permission to publish your work in Sassy Couture and Southern Sass Magazines. If you have submitted to another publication or it is used elsewhere, you MUST inform us immediately. The photos must remain unpublished until the release of the featured issue of a Sassy Couture or Southern Sass Magazine.

We accept Fashion, Art & Beauty editorials. We do not publish any nudity. Model specifics are open, at the discretion of Southern Sass Publications. In order to be considered, all fashion editorials require a minimum of 4 diverse photos, with no repeats. When submitting for consideration, always submit your editorials in low resolution. Please do not include the images in-line. Include the email of who is submitting within the document, and the photographers name and the title of the work. If you are submitting the editorial and you are not the photographer, please confirm and present to us clear, written permission from the photographer that owns the copyright to the images.

 NOTE: As images are approved for publication, you give us the right to edit/crop pictures if needed.

 Team credits are essential for all submissions: if we have accepted your submissions and you provide the high resolution images without team credits, your submission will not be published. We will not be held accountable for any missing or miss-spelled credits. Therefore, please be sure to double check that all persons involved in the submission are included in the credits and their names are spelled correctly. If for any reason a submission is published and a individual/s credit is missing, the person who submitted the feature will be held responsible.

Once an image is accepted to be published, it grants us the permission to use your work in any of our publications, websites, videos, marketing pieces, advertisements, and any other mediums or formats used in the creation, dissemination, and monetization of Southern Sass Publications.  The copyright holder retains ownership of the images.

The only compensation available for magazine submissions and contributions is a digital tear sheet (upon request). Unfortunately we are not able to send free printed copies!
