How can I get a cover? Can I request for a cover?
Front Covers are decided by Sheeba Magazine team and editor in chief. Usually a cover is chosen from the submissions received during open admissions period so every submitter has a potential to get a front cover. In this case no fees apply.
Dreaming to be on a cover? In this case you can submit HERE a possible cover image. Your image has to reflect the current/future theme of the month (please read the following question for more detail). If our team likes your image and decides to use it for a cover there is a cost of $300 which you have to pay in full and final settlement by the 25th day of the current month. In this case the author of the cover image will receive a front cover of print issue, one hard copy of the magazine and high resolution tear sheets.
What are your requirements for a front cover?
Object preferably centered. Room left above and below the object at the same time giving room on left and right sides. Object/model has to maintain eye contact with a viewer. Creative, impressive, outstanding, attractive, extraordinary and corresponding with current open submissions concept at its finest. In some cases a horizontal file for front cover works much better than vertical. In regard to file quality see next question ”What are requirements for image files?”
What are requirements for image files?
Print publication: no less than 300dpi, no less than 2000px at longest side, files no smaller than 1MB. Vertical images (!). If you still want to submit horizontal images please make sure they are not centered. Images will go as 8.5 x 11 inch prints on publication. In some cases a horizontal file for front cover works much better than vertical.
Web Publication: small and web friendly files, not bigger than 600KB in size. Tip: to achieve the best quality while exposing on web the longest side should be 2048px. Horizontal and vertical images are welcome.
Images must not been published in any other magazine or online/print publication. We are fine if you used your images on your portfolio, website or social media.
How do I know if my image files are suitable to print?
The easiest way is to zoom in your image files at 300%. Now you see how it will look as a print. If your image contains black dots, pixels and detail are no longer crisp it means that your image does not qualify to appear on printed publication of Sheeba Magazine.
How do I know if my work was accepted and will be published?
We will notify you by email together with a request to sign an attached release form. Usually we reply within 7 days if are interested in your submission. If not, we do not send any reply.
Do I lose my rights when I sign a release form?
The copyright of your work will ALWAYS remain yours. By signing a release form you give us a written permission to use your submitted images for publication in print and share it on our social media.
Why my work was rejected?
The quality of the images isn’t to our standard. The submission doesn’t fit the concept or does not fit with the flow of the issue. Work was submitted after the deadline. There is little or no space left for placement. Includes unaccepted nudity form.

You may ask for high resolution tear sheets after the issue is out. Email to [email protected] You are free to use received tear sheets anywhere you wish (website, print, social media, portfolio…) but we would ask you and your team to tag and refer to Sheeba Magazine every time you post it on your social media or website.
