Free magazine copies – We do not give free copies of the magazine just because work is published, this is purely based on cost. If we gave them to all members of every team on each issue, plus PR companies, agencies and designers, we would be out of business. We are happy to provide Print Quality PDFs for portfolios, alternatively where you can buy copies. We wish we could afford to give copies, but for now we can’t.
Embargo on images – Do not post images online of your approved editorial before The G.O.O.D.S Magazine goes to publication. If you do, we reserve the right to pull the story for the issue or request you take them down until after publication.
* Obtaining a commissioning letter or pull letter/letter of responsibility does not mean we will publish your editorial story online or in print. Final decision sits with the editor at time of going to press or publishing the digital version. We also reserve the right to change which issue your editorial goes in. Any expenses or costs of your shoot are at your own risk, please do not undertake a shoot in our name unless you can afford the loss, should it happen.
