Applicants for Playmate must send us only recent nude photographs of themselves. The photographs can be digital or prints, Polaroids or transparencies and show a variety of poses, including full figure and face shots. Please do not send us CDs, discs, or undeveloped film since we will be unable to review your submission. Sorry, we do not have photographers that we can recommend.
The editors would also like information on the applicant, such as height, weight, measurements, occupation, awards and hobbies. Please include a brief bio as well.
Playmate applicants must be at least 18 years old and proof of this must be included with the photo submission. This should be in the form of photocopies of two pieces of personal identification. Only the following will be accepted: driver's license, passport, birth certificate, school identification, voter's registration, Social Security, employee ID, or identification issued by the state of residence. Both of the pieces of identification must clearly show the applicant's name. One of these must have a current photograph and list her date of birth, or we cannot accept the submission.
The individual submitting the pictures to Playboy, if other than the Playmate candidate herself, may be eligible to receive a "finder's fee" of $5,000 upon publication of the feature. A finder's fee is paid at Playboy's discretion.
If an applicant is chosen and published as "Playmate of the Month" and she fulfills all of her obligations to Playboy, she will be paid a total of $25,000 with applicable taxes being withheld.
