OUR SUMMER COVER WINNER: Nicole Cherie Boyd of Nicole Cherie Photography


  • Chic Magazine is geared towards female photographers so we prefer to showcase women on our cover image (teens, Mamas, & couples are great too!)
  • We want to showcase images with a fashion editorial feel  (i.e. Vogue, Elle, W magazine covers)
  • We prefer mostly serious facial expressions
  • We are looking for mostly upper body images (not full-body)
  • Image needs to hold up under technical scrutiny
  • Image should have room in the composition for the magazine title and cover blurbs
  • Images should showcase good lighting and posing
  • Oversharpening and sloppy retouching may be cause for elimination of an otherwise strong image
  • Clean edits are recommended (avoid vintage)
  • Color images are preferred
  • Refer to the Summer cover winner to see these suggestions being implemented
