HINTS FOR PLANNING YOUR SUBMISSION

Concept

LAUD is looking for well thought out ideas. Take the time to process what it is you want to say. Is the concept reflected in all the details – hair, makeup, nails, time period, lighting, the image… it’s not enough to have just one strong aspect : everything should reflect your brilliant idea!

Casting

LAUD is multicultural and doesn’t discriminate age wise. That said, we are working with some of the world’s best modelling agencies & creatives so the better the talent, the better your chances are of being published. We don’t promote one particular type of beauty, but we are aspirational, so your cousin Amy probably won’t cut the mustard. Unless your concept is enhanced by your casting choice, we would recommend getting your hands on the best talent you can. If you are new to the business, team up with a photographer and contact modelling agencies to begin testing new faces. They will let you do this free of charge and it will often be a gateway into working with their talent. Remember, the more amazing the face, the more amazing your work will be!

Don't COPY!!!

There is nothing more boring than being a copycat. Be a voice, not an echo. Odds are that if you are copying the reference in every aspect, yours will look like the cheap version. Take risks, be bold and try new things – you will be a lot closer to finding your voice as an artist if you stretch your creativity.

Change it UP

Change that Hairstyle and Makeup between shots, Laud are looking to see a variety of Hairstyles and Makeup within an Editorial.

Fashion

LAUD loves fashion – so we welcome accessories, fashion, and anything that enhances your concept.
Remember though to keep it relevant, we don’t want the entirety of Cousin Amy’s vintage wardrobe.
Often, less is more, so stay focused!
Make sure that the Fashion isn’t the focus, keep that the focus on Hair and Beauty, complement your concept with Fashion.
