Let me begin by saying THANK YOU for supporting SkinMarkZ Magazine into the market! I cannot say how thankful I am to each and every one of you. Without you, none of this would be possible. There is a very long way to go but I know with hard work and prescience, it will happen.
BIG NEWS.... COVER CONTEST!!!!!
HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO SEE YOUR WORK ON THE COVER OF A MAGAZINE? Well... here is your chance. To celebrate the beginning of summer we are going to be holding a cover contest. One lucky winner will be chosen to have their work featured on the JUNE issue as well as recieve a FREE copy of the mag. To enter please check out our Facebook page on Tuesday May 12th, 2015 for a post with all of the details.
For the June issue I want to highlight the different moods that can be portrayed. The bright and beautiful vs the dark and sinister. I cannot wait to see what everyone comes up with and please remember to check the specs for submissions. REMINDER... the better the image quality the more options I have when laying out your feature. I am reaching out to a few big names to join us for the next issue and I cannot wait to share with all of you.
HEADING TO FABAIC?
Make sure that you stop by the ProAiir booth to get your LIMITED EDITION show copy of SkinMarkZ magazine featuring the cover art of SkinWars participant Sammie Bartko. She will also be at the booth showing off her skills so make sure to get your copy signed and snag a selfie with her!
We are looking for some of the attendees to let us know about their experiences with the show. If you are interested in writing an article please email us... email@example.com
MAY ISSUE WRAPUP
Thank you to each and every artist that submitted work for the MAY issue! A special THANK YOU to Johannes Stotter for submitting the amazing feature and cover art in the May issue. Sales of the current issue have exceeded our goals and we are OVER THE MOON! Thank you all because without you, your support and your efforts none of this would be possible. It is and will remain our mission to bring attention to the amazing artists from around the world and give back to you all as much as we can.
Here are some of the other pieces we are looking for:
- Article - Frustrations and Rewards of face painting at parties/events.
- Product Review - What is your favorite product and why?
- Special FX Tutorial - We are looking for step-by-step tutorials on some special FX makeup.
- Article - How to make your hobby a profession?
- Article - Event feature - Since we cannot make it to all of the events around the world we want to hear (and see - images) from your experience at the last event that you attended. Where was it? Who was teaching? What did you learn? Would you suggest to others in the industry?
- Have an idea for a piece? EMAIL US... we love your input!
We have been getting some of the most beautiful submissions but there are still some guidelines that I would like to point out.
We need high resolution files!
Single page layouts: 150 dpi @ 8.5" x 11"
2 page spread layouts: 150 dpi @ 11" x 17"
(quick tip - of your image size is in KB it is probably too small!)
Please make sure that you complete a release form *(found on our website on the SUBMISSIONS tab - www.skinmarkzmagazine.com) WE CANNOT PRINT WITHOUT IT!
Again, thank you for being a part of our journey and we look forward to seeing all of your work again in the future.
