Do you accept all submissions?
We do! Dear Gray Magazine is a publication that celebrates the stories that are told by artisans of every niche. The key to publishing celebrations for our readers is to ensure our readers can visualize the tangible. Whether you’re a creative director, floral designer, photographer, stylist, or makeup artist, we want to share your craft with our readers. Please be sure to have prior permission from your photographer for this submission. We are not exclusive to film.
Are you an exclusive publication?
We aim to publish material that evokes emotions while creating connections within our readers. Therefore, we have decided to keep Dear Gray Magazine print submissions exclusive. We believe that the first emotions provoked from a story should be one that our readers experience for the first time through our brand. Due to exclusivity and knowing how hard you work as an artisan, we do our very best to get back to you within 10-15 business days with a publication decision.
If your submission is chosen for print, we ask that no more than three images be shared on social media while tagging @deargraymagazine as the upcoming publisher. Once the publication has released, we ask that you wait 30 days before submitting it elsewhere. Online journal submissions do not require exclusivity for the duration of 2016.
How do I submit my work to you?
We have created a simple submission form below for you to provide detailed information. As of now, we accept images through Pixieset, ShootProof, Dropbox, Box, and WeTransfer. Unfortunately, PASS crunches image resolution which makes your images incompatible with our CMS.
Please send us the 4 digit pass code if required!
We should be able to see consistency in styling and details as well as the chronological timeline from the images you’ve chosen. The more detail, the likely we are to publish your work.
*Very Important: Your files must be labeled with your business name. We will not review submissions marked otherwise.
Will my work be in print or on the blog?
As much as we would love to publish all of the submissions in print, we intentionally curate what will be in digital or print. The submissions that go to print must remain exclusive, and you will be sent specifics as to the further information we need to publish your work successfully. Various submissions chosen for our online blog will be published in DGM’s monthly newsletter and our social media platforms.
