I had read a post a few months ago detailing where to send in model photo submissions to Playboy. Well recently I have been asked by a couple of models to photograph them for Playboy submissions - as well as to other magazines like Maxim and FHM.

Is there a particular style of photograph that they require for these submissions (i.e. - no Photoshopping, colour, etc)?

I'm sure many of you have had past experiences (with Playboy or many of the other publications) in helping a model become "discovered" and I am looking to tap into those so I may best help an aspiring Playmate.

Thanks for your assistance,

From Playboy:

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.

Submissions can be mailed to:

Attn: Playmate Editor
P.E.I. (Just use these initials which stand for Playboy Enterprises, Inc.)
680 N. Lake Shore Drive
Chicago, IL 60611
USA

Or e-mail playmateeditor@playboy.com

Please be sure to include in the subject line of your e-mail: Attention Playmate Editor. Please note this address is for Playmate submissions only. Questions relating to other subject matters will not be answered.

If you are a California resident, please send your materials to:

Playmate Editor
Playboy Studio West
2112 Broadway
Santa Monica, CA 90404
USA


After the editors have viewed the material submitted, only accepted candidates will be informed in approximately three months. If Playboy has not contacted the applicant within that time period, then unfortunately she was not selected.

While we carefully consider each candidate's potential for Playmate or other features, we DO NOT return unsolicited materials unless accompanied by an appropriate-sized return self-addressed envelope with proper postage. Be assured these photos will not be published and will be destroyed. The submission photos are for evaluation only.

If you would like to be considered as a candidate for Playboy Special Editions, mail your photos and material to:

Special Editions
P.E.I.
680 North Lake Shore Drive
Chicago, Illinois 60611-3088
USA

Thanks Dave. I actually was able to find this on Playboy.com just a few minutes ago, then I read your post.

I now have three gals who would like me to shoot and submit their photos. And this in my small city...can't imagine how many Playboy must get daily!

Thanks again,
