SPRING ISSUE THEME : SPRING FORWARD : THE FUTURE ISSUE
Here’s your chance to think outside of the box. Make a statement, execute your vision, open our minds to what the future holds. Think Avant Garde, modern structure, interesting locations, perfected lines. Show us the future in both fashion and photography. Please keep in mind that although studio is an easy way to shoot something futuristic it can tend to be boring. We’re looking for WOW factor without over the top retouching. Photographers remember the stakes are becoming increasingly higher so bring your A game and make sure you choose your faces wisely and only use SPRING 2014 collections. Please do not submit an entire swimwear editorial. Every photographer’s submission is considered for the cover so choose your models with this intention and don’t forget to shoot a COVER SHOT to be considered. Remember if chosen Bisous Magazine has the right to adjust stories accordingly including renaming it, changing order sequence and cropping adjustments.
