Photography Submissions

Photography submissions are open for the 2025 printed book.

Silvershotz invites any of our 700 previously published photographers to apply with new work, and of course, new photographers with photography folios who require industry recognition and promotion.

Why submit your portfolio to Silvershotz?

Silvershotz provides integrity and credibility to your work as a world leader in publishing contemporary photography. Since 2002 Silvershotz has featured more than 700 emerging photographers, distributed 470,000 quality journals in 1400 bookstores in 17 countries. Silvershotz first published a printed magazine in 2002, then launched the world’s first interactive multi-platform Silvershotz experience from 2021 to 2019. In 2023 Silvershotz launches its new video magazine. Your work becomes part of the Silvershotz archives and accessible by institutions, libraries and collectors around the world.

Why submit your portfolio to Silvershotz?

Silvershotz does not pay photographers, and photographers do not pay Silvershotz. You receive excellent publicity and Silvershotz promotes you, your project, books, exhibitions and your website/agent/gallery. The photographer at all times retains copyright and intellectual ownership of the images supplied.

Videos of Your Work

Engage with your market. Take a video of your location if you do outdoor shots, speak to the camera about why you do something, perhaps you want to share some of your technical process. Perhaps a video of an exhibition at a gallery opening. We only require between 4 to 7 minutes of video; Silvershotz will edit your video to professional standards to add to our interview with you online.

Video formats accepted are AVI/MP4 and MOV – our preference is MP4.

Anything you can provide helps us create a meaningful video of you and your work.

Submit Your Portfolio

Follow These guidelines

  • Submit between 20 and 100 images for consideration, we then make our selection; usually between 10 and 20 images are published in the portfolio video interview. The images MUST be a cohesive themed body of work.

  • Size each image 2048pixels on the longest side. A minimum file size of 2mb for each image.

  • The image title must be in a number sequence with your name: EXAMPLE > 01_Clive_Waring. Include a detailed caption list of each image with as much information as possible.

  • Attach word docs with your artist statement, biography, education, published and exhibited works, professional affiliations plus details about your project.

  • Contact details must include your name, address (including country), telephone number and email.

  • Videos.

    The new format is a vdieo interview with you, the photographer. Make sure you attach as many video clips as possible of you on location, working or at a gallery opening or book launch.
