This is due to uploaded content which is contrary to FashionHarp Image Guidelines. If this is the case, you will receive an email from the administration with steps on how to resolve this issue. Please be sure to reply directly to the administrator who contacted you.

To be listed the verification an agency has to provide is limited to providing references from other established agencies, or clients, or talent they represent, or to show a body of work with established clients for the talent they represent.
A word on safety: Before reaching out to or meeting with any agency we always recommend doing your research on the agency and/or agent, asking for references and going to meetings accompanied. Also please note while some agencies scout for talent via social media or online there are a lot of scams/imposters, if you get contacted on social media you should always check that the contact you received is legitimate by contacting the agency directly by phone or by checking their official web site.

Publication & Brands FAQ
How to become a listed client on FashionHarp.com, how to manage your database page and more
DETAILS IN PROGRESS
If your magazine or brand is already on FashionHarp.com, we can help you get started maintaining and adding content to its FH page.
First sign up for a FashionHarp.com membership at FashionHarp.com/registeration. After verifying your email, request upload privileges in our short on-boarding application or reach out to us at Fashionharp.com so we can give you access to add and edit content in the database.
The creation of magazine pages in the FashionHarp.com database is done on a strictly invite-only basis depending on the caliber of photographers/artists the magazine works with, how many issues have been released and whether it is print or online.
If you are not yet included in the database but would like to be considered for an official page, please email firstname.lastname@example.org a brief synopsis of the publication, whether it is print or online-only, how many issues have been released and a list of notable photographers and artists involved. We will review your submission and decide whether it is a great fit for the FH database.
This is an example of an official magazine database page: 08 FH
Please note that because of the high volume of magazine submissions we might not be able to answer every application.
To upload you need to be registered.
Before you begin, please make sure the campaign does not already exist in the database. Use the search bar to navigate to the client or photographer’s page and look for the campaign there. It is possible you or the artist you represent are simply not credited yet.
1. Click the upload icon on your media dashboard
2. Start typing the name of the client for which the campaign is for. If the name of the brand does not appear, you may upload under the client “Various Campaigns” but you must include the brand’s name in the TITLE field later.
3. Enter the basic information including the publish date (month the images were published), the title (typically, titles use the naming scheme “[Brand Name] [Season]” and a link to another site where the images can be found (optional).
If the campaign was produced specifically for social media placement only, choose “Work type: Social Media”
4. Next, you will be prompted to add crew credits for the campaign. To avoid duplicates being uploaded by other artists or agents, please credit everyone you can, especially the photographer. If the photographer is not in our database, please add their name to the TITLE of the work (ie. “Title by Photographer Name”)
5. Click ADD IMAGES and select one or more files from your computer. Images must be under 1MB. Click UPLOAD ALL IMAGES.
6. Once uploaded, you can tag specific artists and models in each different picture if needed. You can also click and drag these images to rearrange them to match their original order of campign. (You will only be able to rearrange photos if you were the original uploader of the work.)
7. Click Submit to FashioHarp.com or Publish
We have decided not to print the April edition because so many of our UK and Italian readers will not be in their offices, where they would normally receive the magazine. Instead we are producing a digital edition which will be an exact replica of the printed edition which will be available from 16th April. You will find it on the homepage of our website. You will need to be signed in to access it. We will be in touch with all our members on publication.
FashionHarp magazine page will continue to be published in digital format until measures to fight the Covid-19 pandemic in the UK and Italy are lifted. We will review things on an issue- by- issue basis and will be in contact with our members when each issue is published.
