The models who participate in the editorials produced by our publication are either scouted via social media through one of our team members or presented to us through one of our go to agencies that we work closely with. Alternatively, we often keep our social media and site updated with current casting calls allowing every child to have a chance at shooting with us. Visit the Casting Call page to stay updated!

What sort of images are suitable for my print feature submission? my child’s photos aren’t anything like the ones you post on Instagram, are they still usable?

Image selection is entirely up to you based on what images you believe best reflect your child! Yes dance shots and other related sport/industry shots are all acceptable as these best display your child’s talent.

You have the choice between headshots, body shots, action shots, etc! phone shots are also accepted as long as they are clear, are not in a distracting location, and are not small files.

Our Instagram feed normally consists of editorials/blog story imagery, it is not a reflection of the sort of images that we publish in our feature sections. You can take a look at our Instagram highlight “Mag” or tagged photos to find images of other children holding their publications for a better idea!

What should i write in my child’s Bio and how long should it be?

Article feature bios should be:

  • Written in 3rd person, 5-10 lines long.

  • Include name, age and should be an explanation/brief story on your child’s life.

    What are their best traits? what do they like to do for fun? if they are in the industry of dance/cheer/modelling/acting etc, what do they like about it and why did you get them into it?

  • EXAMPLE: “Sophia May is 3 years old, her smile lights up every room that she enters! she has been dancing from the moment she was able to walk..”

We want to hear it all!

Do i get a free magazine if my child/work is inside? Although, we’d love to give away thousands of free magazines the publication does cost our company money to produce, print and ship therefore it is not feasible for us to give everyone free copies.

However, everyone featured in the magazine will have the opportunity to see their features/spreads without need of purchase, simply email us to request your free sample!

Do i have to buy the magazine to see my page? Absolutely not! all who request tear-sheets are presented with their sample pages within 48-72 hours, Purchasing the official print copy of the magazine is completely up to you.

Does my child’s images have to be professional in order to submit? When submitting for our features area, professional shots are not necessary.

We do accept phone pictures as long as they are clear and the background is not distracting. We retouch all none professional shots where necessary.

What are the perks of having my child featured in Ivy? Those featured in Ivy will be seen by various agents, fashion brands and talent scouts who monthly read our publication in search of faces for their companies. All children featured in Ivy are highly considered for editorial / cover photoshoots in future and are often posted to our Instagram.
