So I know the other day I was looking for some people to help me with this magazine that I am doing for college. The magazine is about body positivitybasically (Although my lecturer wanted me to narrow it down to just fat acceptance for women but I am not happy doing that) I have a lot of the content I want to use but I need your help with my “adverts” You know how in magazines half the magazine is taken up with adverts well as my magazine is sort of selling body positivity I want to replace these adverts with pictures of you and your stories.
So I need a high quality photo of you from the shoulders up against a plain white(or closest thing to) background. You can be wearing make-up or no make up-whatever you are comfortable with but I don’t really want to see clothes or jewellry in the photo. So I have given 2 examples there of what I would be looking for. I look naked but am in fact wearing a boob tube thing. Of course they don’t need to be edited or anything-I’ll do that!You can have your hands down or up like in the example, we don’t want every photo to look like a mugshot. you can be smiling or not. Whatever!I should be smiling but I dint have a lot of time this morning. If you want to email me your photo its firstname.lastname@example.org I will also enable the submit button on my tumblr too if you want to go through that!
And then if you could submit a little piece to me about what body positivity means to you, or what body acceptance means to you. We all have insecurities about our bodies but I would like it to be mostly positive please! It can be as long or as short as you want, I will have fun playing around with typography if they are all different lengths.
I really want all kinds of people to help with this, it is about diversity so everyone is encouraged to submit something no matter your size, race, gender, sexual orientation etc!
You would seriously be doing me the biggest favour in the world if you could help out with this, I have such ideas! And finally could you please help me to spread the word for this because even though I have an amazing group of followers I don’t have that many. If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask,thank you for listening!
Love you all forever and thank you so much! <3
This is a really lovely idea.
