Bliss Celebrations Guide Editorial Submission Form

WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR WHEN CHOOSING TO FEATURE AN EVENT?
We love receiving submissions for all kinds of events from kids parties, to mitzvahs, to weddings, and holiday soirees to sweet sixteens and everything in between including fundraisers, showers, and styled photoshoots. We look for events featuring unique themes or color palettes, lots of interesting details, and flawless execution. All submissions are considered for our Blog and magazine simultaneously unless we are instructed otherwise. Priority is given to events that include multiple Bliss Celebrations advertisers.

WHAT IS THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING EVENTS?
All EDITORIAL SUBMISSIONS FORMS (including photography) must be submitted by September 15, 2013. Any event happening after this date that you would like considered must be discussed directly with your sales representative for consideration.

WHAT SIZE PHOTOS?
All photos must be high resolution (300 dpi) jpegs without any branding or watermarks. Please include all the images from the event if possible, or at least 100-150 of the best images including mostly detail shots. If you have any questions on whether or not the images are high res, please contact the photographer directly before submitting to us.

CAN I SUBMIT THIS TO AN ONLINE BLOG WITHOUT LOSING YOUR CONSIDERATION?
Yes. We do allow the feature to be published online and will still consider it, however if it is being submitted to any other print magazine we will no longer consider it for publication. If at all possible, we would appreciate any events we have selected to print not appearing online anytime after November 1 which includes your own blog and Facebook, once the magazine is released, we don’t mind seeing it online again.

HOW DO YOU CREDIT VENDORS?
We credit our advertising vendors in the “Featured Vendors” section of the feature. All other non-advertiser vendors are credited in the resource directory in the back of the magazine. If the photographer is a non-advertiser, they recieve a credit line on the feature page(s).

WHEN WILL I KNOW IF YOU ARE FEATURING MY SUBMISSION?
We make our final decisions in the fall. Due to the high volume of submissions, we cannot respond right away regarding the status of the feature. If we select your event, we will contact you right away for further information.

CAN I SUBMIT A GREAT INVITATION, BOUQUET, UNIQUE PRODUCT OR OTHER EVENT DETAIL?
Yes, please do! We are always looking for fabulous items to feature on our inspiration pages and for our Blog as well. If you have a great product or service you want us to consider, please contact your sales representative.

CAN I SUBMIT THE EDITORIAL SUBMISSION FORM FOR AN EVENT THAT HAS YET TO OCCUR?
Yes. If you are submitting the event before it has occurred, please work directly with your sales representative to get her the EDITORIAL SUBMISSION FORM (with as much information as you can provide at that time) and then once the event has occurred, please follow the above steps.

WILL YOU PHOTOGRAPH MY EVENT?
Please fill out the EDITORIAL SUBMISSION FORM and contact your sales representative directly with your request for photography. Typically, we will consider photographing the event only if there is no photographer or the timeline does not allow for the details of the event to be properly photographed by the hired event photographer.
