1. If I am published in a MOLL Magazine issue can I receive free printed copies of my edition?
At this time we cannot supply any free copies if your editorial submission is featured within the MOLL Magazine brand. However we will happily provide a digital copy of your final feature in PDF format or information of where the magazine can be purchased if your issue is being currently sold.
Not all of our issues are for sale as some are available for digital free readership to MOLL Magazine registered site users for view by logging in and registering with our site. In the future as our print publication grows we would like to be able to supplement a few courtesy copies. In additional models always have the option of purchasing directly in from the print distributor instead of newsstands for a lower cost when buying in bulk issues.
2. For actual issue features can I post my images online or social media? What about if they already are online?
Please refrain from posting approved images or stories online prior to the launch of the issue. We reserve the right to pull the story should you do so. Models who are photographed by MOLL Magazine staff are not permitted to use featured photos for other publications and by doing so do jeopardize their feature. On occasion we may feature highly popular images in print that have been published virtually.
