Photography: High-quality images and photography play a key role in making VISION editorials so appealing to our visually minded audience of design professionals. The most appealing images show a room setting with a focus on the window fashion, although when appropriate we will consider product shots in isolation. Images must be unique, not have been previously used in advertising, collateral, sampling, or other printed material. Images must be in digital format, which should be 300 dpi or larger at 100%.
Labeling Materials: All materials submitted to VISION for publication will become the property of VISION and will not be returned. Please make sure to create duplicate copies of your materials before you submit them for publication, and label them with your company name, contact information, and the project/article for which they are intended, so they are properly identified while being processed
