Magazine Submission Guidelines
We encourage submissions of photographic series and outstanding single images. The following details are to give general guidance for preparing your submission:
In each issue we publish images that show your individual expression on a pre-selected theme. Send up to 10 images along with a brief text (up to 150 words) explaining your perspective on the theme (see below).
A personal series of work which may still be in progress but is tightly edited and clearly demonstrates your project idea. Images (up to 10) should be accompanied by a personal statement or significant text.
Explorative pieces on any photographic topic, both brief and in-depth. For written submissions please email us your story idea or proposal.
One of our most difficult challenges is finding terrific cover images that work in portrait format! Think about including a vertical image along with your submission that works directly with the issue theme. Single image submissions are also most welcome.
If you would like to contribute to the magazine in another way please get in touch.
PLEASE NOTE: Priority for publication is given to members of London Independent Photography, however membership of LIP does not guarantee your work will be selected for publication. Submitted work will be published solely at the Editors' discretion. We cannot be held responsible for incomplete submissions or for those received after the submission deadline. Although we make every effort to communicate with all who submit, we regret that due to time constraints this is not always possible.
