Photography submissions:

If you wish to have your photographs appear either on the Whim website or in our digital magazine issue, please send us an email (whim.online@gmail.com) containing either a link to the photographs, or with the photographs as attachments. You can choose to only send through a collection of the photographs from your shoot that you feel will work best with the Whim aesthetic, or you can also choose to show us the whole shoot, and we can choose a selection of photographs to showcase.

We also enjoy reading a little bit of information about yourself, so please feel free to include where you are based, additional information about the shoot, and links to your website and / or social media.

Please also make sure that you include a title or any credits you wish to be published with your images.

Photography Submissions FAQ:

Q: Is there a minimum number of outfits which must be included in a photoshoot?
A: We are just as happy to publish / feature a photoshoot which only contains one outfit than we are to also publish a photoshoot containing several different outfits – If the images suit the aesthetic of Whim then we really don’t mind how many outfits are involved!

Q: I want to feature a sneak-peek or post my series of images on my blog / Facebook page etc. If I do this, are my images still able to be featured in your publication?
A: We don’t feel the need to keep the photoshoots we want to feature as exclusive to Whim Online Magazine only (unless they were photographed solely for Whim, in which case we ask photographers refrain from submitting them to other publications until they have been published in Whim first), and think that as the photographer of the images you are more than welcome to want to share them on your websites or with your social media followers in the lead-up to them being featured (particularly as sometimes the images may take up to 3-4 weeks to be published / released, depending on whether they will be published on the website or in a digital issue).

Q: I have a photoshoot I wish to submit to Whim Online Magazine for consideration, however it has been published on another website / magazine already. Am I still able to submit it?
A: As long as the previous website or publication did not make you agree to keeping your photoshoot / images exclusively for their use only, then you are more than welcome to submit your previously featured / published photoshoot to Whim!

*Please note: We understand that photographers wish to prevent the unauthorised use of their images, therefore if you are worried about others being able to save your work from our website please feel free to place a watermark on your images.

Creative writing submissions:

If you wish to submit a short story, please make sure that it is no longer than 500 words so it can be presented across a maximum of two pages. We also love receiving poetry, and we ask that poems are also no longer than 2 pages in length. We have ongoing themes for every publication: dreamy, whimsical and nostalgic.

Other submissions:

If you wish to contribute or collaborate with Whim Online Magazine (either on the blog or in our upcoming issue) please send us an email at whim.online@gmail.com to say hello. We’re always open to suggestions :)

  1. Hi :) I was wondering if you could provide a link to the upcoming themes of each issue. And thank you for such a beautiful magazine :)

    • Hi Katey, thank you so much for your lovely comment! We don’t have different themes for each digital issue, but we always just want work that can be described as dreamy and whimsical :) So I guess you could say they’re our ongoing themes – Hope that helps!

  2. Hi,

    I found your website is very inspiring and beautiful. I would like to contribute/collaborate with your magazine so I have tried to submit some photos that I did for your consideration a couple days ago. Hopefully my photos are meeting your expectations.

    Hugs, Mony

    • Hello Mony, Thank you so much for contacting us and sharing your beautiful photography with us! I will be in contact with you shortly :) Best wishes, Melanie

  4. Hello, I just wanted to ask what size photos work best for emailing in submission. Would you prefer lower quality files to be sent for viewing and the high quality ones sent through if the submission is accepted? Thank you in advance.

    • Hi Maddy, thanks for your query! Please feel free to send the lower quality images and if your submission is approved (it usually depends on how much of a backlog of content we have) we will then request the higher resolution versions :) I hope that helps! – Melanie

  10. Hi Melanie

    I absolutely love your magazine and it’s simplistic layout. Quite matches my personal aesthetics.
    I am a Fashion Blogger and am looking for an opportunity to collaborate with your site for a feature/interview. I can do an exclusive photo shoot for you if you like. Please let me know if you offer such collaboration.
    I wanted to check with you here before going ahead and applying through an email.
    Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
    Thanks!
