Casting Call: Submission Guidelines and General Information
What is it? The “Girls of Rat Rod” Special Edition is a high-quality, AD-free, 80-page print edition of Rat Rod Magazine that features models (and rat rods) from around the world. Unlike a normal issue of Rat Rod, this special edition focuses on the model – in an artistic, creative, and tasteful way. The highest possible quality photography mixed with subtle design elements creates a stunning visual and a must have collector’s item for all Rat Rod fans. Target release is fall/winter 2016
Our emphasis is on creative photography and design – doing something different, beautiful, and artsy. This is not your typical pin-up collection or swimsuit edition… this is inherently Rat Rod. (no nudity)
How does it work?
To be featured in this Special Edition, models are invited to submit (no more than three) sample photos, name/age/location and any other relevant bio information, and portfolio or web/social media links to: firstname.lastname@example.org (international submissions are accepted)
If selected, you will work with our team - and our top photographers - to visualize and coordinate a photoshoot near you over the course of the summer. Rat Rod Magazine Director of Photography Jerry Ripley will bring his world renowned vision and photography to you, to create an amazing featurette that everyone can be proud of.
Obviously, not everyone can be chosen to participate in this Special Edition – and that is the tough part of this process. Many variables will factor into that decision. Please be courteous to other participants and the Rat Rod team, as we want this to be a fun and exciting experience for everyone.
The cover will be chosen from the magazine’s content – meaning, if you are chosen for the issue, you will be considered for the cover as well.
** If you have already submitted a feature or contacted Rat Rod Magazine in regards to future work in the magazine, that is a separate process completely. If submitting for this Special Edition, please do so via this casting call.
** You must be 18 years of age or older to participate.
** All models will be asked to sign a formal release near the time of the photoshoot.
Each participant will receive copies of the issue as well as an exclusive goodie pack from Rat Rod Magazine, commemorating your participation in this Special Edition. All participants will have access to final photos for use in your portfolios, web, etc., as well as the official endorsement of Rat Rod Magazine.
