CHIQ Magazine

Deadline: May 15, 2008 (RECEIVE)

CHIQ Magazine

Online Magazine for Fashion Crochet
Submissions for Summer Issue

CHIQ is a quarterly online magazine devoted to high fashion wearable crochet. CHIQ is for the fashion-forward crochet enthusiast—whether youthful or mature, female or male, or beginner or advanced. We go beyond the usual in order to publish edgy designs to crocheters around the world.

The first issue of CHIQ will be available on or before June 15, 2008. Subsequent issues will be released corresponding to the seasons, Fall: September, Winter: December, Spring: March, and Summer: June.

Pattern and Article Submission Guidelines (truncated)

We encourage the submission of orginal designs and articles. We try to provide an honorarium to compensate contributors who submit to CHIQ. All contributers should know that they retain FULL copyright for their work.

CHIQ is looking for EDGY and ORIGINAL. CHIQ is currently gearing up to release its first SUMMER issue. All design submissions for the summer issue should be summer wearables.

CHIQ publishes in three categories, womenswear, menswear, and accessories. If you have an original chic, summery, edgy design that you would like to contribute don´t hesistate to submit. The deadline for summer issue contributions is May 15, 2008.

We cannot accept the submission of knitted items.

Currently, due to the start-up nature of CHIQ we cannot currently offer large compensation for submitted patterns. We do, however, offer an honorarium ($15-75$), and the opportunity for your design to appear in a professional setting with great photography and stunning models. In addition, all crochet designers RETAIN copyright ownership of their work.

If you have a completed work or an idea that you want to submit, simply email a picture and your idea to the editor. We can assist you in writing the pattern and in creating diagrams. You don´t have to send anything via snail mail. Our contract crocheters can construct the garment, which will be part of a photo shoot, where you will be given 100% credit for the design. A brief bio of the designer will accompany the design as well as a link to any web address you prefer and your email (if you desire).

If you have any questions, please don´t hesitate to contact us:
