You Can Still Use Kavyar

It’s important to note that you can still submit work to publishers and communicate with them.

However, your ability to interact with the wider Kavyar community will remain limited until your portfolio meets the criteria for being accepted by the community review team.

Why Wasn’t My Portfolio Accepted?

Unfortunately, our review team cannot provide individual critiques. Common reasons for not being accepted are given below.

Common Issues

  • Not enough images
  • Not enough variety / too many images with the same looks
  • Missing links to your Instagram and website
  • Missing credits for your teammates
  • Inconsistent quality of work. Show only your best images.
  • Relying too heavily on a glam or alt-model aesthetic. While glam and alt photography is allowed on Kavyar, we have decided to set a different tone from sites like Model Mayhem.
  • Screenshots of work embedded within an app or website. Upload original images or ask a teammate to do so and credit you.
  • Low-quality mobile phone photos or selfies
  • Does not meet Kavyar standards of aesthetics or tone
  • Work violates our policy on prohibited content.

How to get your Kavyar profile accepted

  • Showcase a diverse range of your best work.
  • Focus on displaying your ability to curate your content.
  • Include all necessary credits and links.
