Issue Details

This issue of Lemonade and Lenses will contain a mixture of articles and images pertaining to the theme: SELF. Specifically, this issue will be all about celebrating yourself, nurturing your creative soul, being kind to yourself, having the guts to go after your dreams, and contain other uplifting topics! We are currently seeking photographers who want to share their experiences, tips, advice, and/or stories alongside their images on any of the following topics: self-portraits, personal or passion projects, charity work, putting yourself out there, etc.

While you have a greater chance of appearing in Lemonade and Lenses magazine if you contribute an educational or inspirational article, we also interview a select number of photographers a year for our publication. On average, contributors receive 5-10 spreads in our magazine between the educational article or interview and supporting images.


Lemonade and Lenses does not accept submissions that have already been published by another photography blog or magazine. By submitting, you understand that once Lemonade and Lenses publishes your session, no other blog (other than your OWN) or magazine may feature it again. If this happens, your feature will be promptly removed from our digital catalog, and we will no longer accept work from you.


All submissions must be received by April 30, 2018. Due to the vast number of submissions we receive for each issue, we can only reply to submissions that have been accepted. If you do NOT receive a reply from us by May 7, 2018—you were NOT selected for this particular issue.
