Calling all fashion designers, stylists, makeup artists, hair stylists and photographers!

Bravura Magazine has a few big announcements for the remainder of 2012, the first being that we are going to hold our first annual fashion photography contest. This year Bravura Magazine will be celebrating their 5-year anniversary and with that in mind, our Editor-in-Chief has decided to release a Digital Issue of Bravura in November!


Our Creative Director, Tamiz U. Rezvi, has made the “creative” decision and wants to open up the contest theme as “Fashion, Yet Sexy.” Therefore, we are dropping the “celebration” theme, in order to make it easier for more people to enter the contest with images they may already have, or make it easier for them to go out and simply shoot!

We really hope you take this as a great opportunity to have your work featured in a magazine to more than 1/2-million readers across the WORLD. If you have any questions, please feel free to comment here or you can email us via –

Your imagination is your limit. Make it as fashionable as possible. Make it as sexy as you want. Have it tell a story. Let your imagination go free! And just celebrate it!
