These terms and conditions constitute an agreement between Merrymen Magazine Inc. and all contributors including their team members or any individuals associated with the submission for Merrymen. The terms and conditions as set out here in are not subject to any other written or verbal condition, qualification or agreement.


Merrymen will reply to your query or manuscript only if we are interested in your idea. All images not taken by you or not authorized by the photographer included in the submission will be refused. You may either submit a) a completed manuscript of your work for consideration, attached as a Microsoft Word document, or b) a detailed query outlining your story idea pasted into the body of the e-mail message. Images may be shared with Merrymen via e-mail or sent to our dropbox account: hello@merrymenmag.com. All submissions are due by the editor’s deadline. All submissions will be considered for web publishing. However, contributors may request their submission for print, in which case additional costs may accrue. Submissions are subject to review by Merrymen at a base rate per photo and may be approved or denied publishing. If approved, submission contributors will be invoiced via email. Submission publishing will not occur until payment is accepted. Denied submissions will not be published and not be charged any costs. If you would like to know the costs of your submission before review please contact hello@merrymenmag.com.


The editor will notify you by e-mail if we plan to move forward with your query or manuscript. Changing a storyline or angle after it’s assigned can cause problems and is not permitted. If things are not working out as you envisioned, discuss this with the editor well in advance. Otherwise Merrymen reserves the right to publish submissions according to our agreement. Previews of a manuscript by outside sources are not acceptable. If a source requests to see and/or approve your manuscript before it’s published, please inform us.

Merrymen Magazine Inc. reserves the right to edit, add to and/or correct the submitted work. Corrections, additions and edits may occur if the feature is too long, has spelling or grammar mistakes, is not legible, is not strong enough or is not on brand. Merrymen may send back your submission to you and ask for a revision. We do our best to assign only stories that we fully intend to publish; however, the publisher reserves the right to not publish an article or feature. When a submission is not published, it’s almost always because the story did not meet our requirements, has previously been published elsewhere, or the writer was unable to make the revisions we requested by deadline. Requirements are outlined at merrymenmag.com/submissions. Submissions accepted for publication in Merrymen may also appear on the Merrymen website (merrymen.ca), in an electronic version, any other form of Merrymen, or used for Merrymen sales/promotional purposes.

• to publish in print, online and/or in digital format including any means or forms of advertising and/or promotional purposes.
• to publish it on social media (Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, etc.) and on Merrymen’s website, which shall include the photographer’s name as well as provided contributing team members and only if the names are provided along with the submission at the same time.

The submitter and all team members consent to indemnify Merrymen against any claim, demand, action, suit, or other proceedings against Merrymen arising out of the use of the photograph and related to any false or inaccurate statement. The submitter and all team members grant this authorization free of charge and that Merrymen does not provide free print copies to the collaborators published in the printed issues. Participants who have modeled or posed in the photo have assigned all relevant rights to the photographer. By submitting you understand that submission does not mean acceptance; and that all submissions are subjected to review.
