Hey guys ~
First off, thanks for your interest and enthusiasm in Unfiltrd Mag. It’s a concept that randomly came to life while discussing our boredom with the continuously mundane and repetitive features in current publications (specifically within fashion). We are at the very forefront of this brand new start-up adventure, so bare with us as we learn what works and what doesn’t work. That said, here’s a brief intro as to what we have in mind…
Now more than ever, everyone is trying to make a name for themselves. Young artists and entrepreneurs are thriving in their work--crossing lines in all aspects and mediums of creative expression. There’s so many fresh, new perspectives that are surfacing daily. As we all know, social media has provided an excellent platform for showcasing new talent. It’s free to post, efficient, and allows us to reach a broad audience. That said, as artists we want to continue to push boundaries, especially when it comes to networking and reaching out. With Unfiltrd Mag, we want to provide an additional platform in which artists can showcase, collaborate, network, and be inspired.
For now, printed issues will be featured quarterly, the first issue to launch July 1st. Eventually, our goal is to fund the magazine solely through advertisers. We will never have any submission fee for our artists; Unfiltrd Mag will simply be a way for you to showcase your work and to get your name out there. Our ultimate goal is to team up with companies searching for creative people like yourselves; to be a type of middleman and to increase opportunity for everyone involved. Along with printed issues, we will be launching a website (set to tentatively debut the first of June), which will be updated with new features monthly.
Check out our brief ( and very awkward) video on how the idea of Unfiltrd Mag came to life. We've also included a link to our most recent Tumblr post, "Meet the Editors, Pt 1: The Mag Masterz Unfiltrd", where you'll be able to learn more about each of our backgrounds.
We truly are looking forward to collaborating with everyone, and appreciate your support in funding this first issue.
An Unfiltrd Thank You ~ All contributors will receive their specific donation amount gift as well as all of the proceeding gifts leading up to the amount given.
Risks and challenges
Finding the right advertisers will be a challenge for us. We do not want to spoil the creative and artistic vision of the mag with mundane and irrelevant advertisements. Our 2nd issue will be funded solely by advertisers and we can assure you that we will not fill the mag with crappy ads that you don't care about just to make money. If we don't make enough, everything will be funded out-of-pocket.
Because our magazine is submission based, we aren't always sure what we will receive. Some issues may be shorter than others, but we will never compromise quality for quantity. We want our mag to be visually appealing and cherishable; something that sits on your coffee table that you flip through occasionally for added inspiration.
