School’s out and there’s a collective sigh from the entire TMK team. No more school run, no more packed lunches, no more white/grey socks shoved down the sofa. So, although we’re all for education it’s now time for us to start our summer adventures and as such the TMK team are also taking the summer off! We’re quite giddy at the things we have planned and although we won’t be blogging we’ll still be Facebooking, Instagramming, Google Plussing and Tweeting up a storm. We’ll be expanding our kid’s brains with travel, days out, crafts, movies, projects etc and we’ll be back to tell you all about it on September 1st.
In the meantime we’re looking for super, special and amazing photographers. As part of the continued development of the TMK site we have decided to create a new feature for professional lifestyle photographers to showcase their work.
So, starting from now we are inviting submissions from talented, creative, professional photographers who would like to be featured on Truly Madly Kids. Carefully take a moment to read the submission guidelines below before submitting your work for review.
*We’re looking for submissions that fall under the TMK ethos of ‘families’ – from the youngest to the oldest and everything that the family, either as a whole or individually, is involved in:
Food (especially shoots that we can add recipes to – your recipes or ours)
Weddings (unique and colourful)
Holidays/Travel (so we can add information about where to visit, what to do etc.)
*We expect to have a large number of people send in submissions and we reserve the right to only select those which fit in with the style and ethos of our site.
*We will acknowledge every submission by email within 48hrs of receipt.
*You must be a professional photographer, membership of a professional body is not necessary but you need to show that you have attained a certain professional standard to your work. We will judge this on your submission.
*The family you have photographed must have given their permission for you to submit your shoot for publication on our site and you must be the copyright owner.
*We’re not looking for just ordinary photo shoots, we want you to blow our team socks off! Make us say ‘ooh’ and ‘ah’. Make us coo over babies, make us want that puppy, make us want to sell our house and move into that house. Leave us astounded. Make us bow down and praise your talents, but mainly we want you to tell us, and our readers, a story.
*Please also send a short explanation about your shoot and why you think we should pick you.
The TMK team will review each submission for it’s quality of photography and originality as part of the selection procedure. If we decide to feature you we will send you further details on how to submit the images via a Dropbox link to us directly.
There is no charge to be featured on the blog and we will include a link to your website and/or Facebook page or blog as part of the post. All we ask in return is that you add a link back from your site to Truly Madly Kids.
However, if you would like an advert to run alongside your feature we will offer a tiered rate as follows:
3 months £45
6 months £75
12 months £125
You will also receive a badge to proudly display showing readers that you have been featured on Truly Madly Kids.
Please submit no more than 8 images to be reviewed to Vix@trulymadlykids.co.uk (minimum of 4 images, maximum of 8)
Enjoy your summer you crazy kids and always remember to think big and reach for the stars,
