See the list below for questions that you should ask yourself before proceeding to a feature request:

 

ARE YOU NEWSWORTHY?

  • Who are you and what is your occupation?
  • Do you have a fan base? If so, how many subscribers do you have?
  • Have you obtained any national awards? Will you be obtaining any national awards?
  • How impactful are you in your community? What have you accomplished that is worthy of being broadcast to audiences near and far?
  • How will you contribute to a prominent high-fashion, photography, art and entertainment-based publication where ideal content is published?
