Can I have a Cover?:
Almost every model and photographer that submits asks for a cover, we are well aware that you want one.
Each month from the Dozens of Sets submitted we chose the highest quality photo sets, and sexiest models for our monthly covers.
Many of our cover photographers are Pro Photographers, even Master Class Trainers. However we always make allowances for Amazing Photos!
My Model is Famous… If your Model has 20-80k followers on FB, this does not qualify you for an instant cover. Amazing photos might.
We have actually featured some stunning models with small FB followings, purely based on their absolutely stunning photos.
Celebrity Models & Actresses to qualify for a celebrity cover usually have at least 2-3+ Million Followers, and the photos still must be High Quality.
Common Submission Questions:
Am I allowed to post these photos on facebook or social media as well? – Yes you can, Finest is a non-exclusive magazine.
If I have an amazing! set of photos from 4 years ago, can i submit them? Yes, there is no age restriction on photos.
I submitted my photos but they didn’t get used, how come? This is as we get hundreds of submissions and can only choose 10-12 sets based on quality.
Can I share my Finest Published Photos on Social Media, Yes, we will even provide you with Tear Sheets and Instragram Squares upon request.
Is there a limit to how much I can submit? No, you could literally submit 100 sets, Which we would use over time if the quality is good.
So do you want only 10 photos or is it better to submit you 40-50? The more photos you send us, the more variety we can pick from, better to send more.
I am not good at photoshop retouch, can I send you untouched photos? Typically No, ask us about our retouch service, as untouched photos are never used.
We do provide a retouch service, if you need us to retouch your photos to magazine quality. There is a small fee involved. You will have to ask us.
We now receive dozens of submissions each week. There are a few key factors when we approve photo sets for inclusion.
Size & Quality– Most important – Magazine Quality photos at a printable resolution. larger than 3000 x 5000 pixels is normal.
Lighting – This is glamour magazine, so if the photos are too dark or dull they wont be accepted.
On Topic – Just think, would you submit this photo to FHM, Maxim or Playboy?
The Model(s) – If the model in the shoot is already well known or very gorgeous, this is also taken into account.
Note: Famous Models, Actresses & Photographers have priority when making submissions for the Cover. (it is commonly asked)
