A few days ago, I asked Bahia Kids Magazine’s Creative Director, Fredsonn and Chief Editor, Julio to share more details about this bilingual (Portuguese/English) publication.
Fredsonn, the creative behind the magazine, is so lively and fun and his personality goes beyond what you see, his voice is as colourful as his looks. He sent me this video to share with you about this magazine! I want kids and teens to be informed and learn about submitting their photos to different magazines for publication. Bahia Kids Magazine offers an option to publish a series of photos rather than just one image.
I had the opportunity to ask Julio, Bahia Kids Magazine Chief Editor, some questions I had and that I am sure you all want to know.
Where does the name of your magazine come from?
The Magazine’s name is Bahia Kids Magazine and this is because Fredsonn comes from a place in Brazil in the North East part of the country called Bahia. This region was important in the 17th Century because it was here where ships were docking from their journeys from Africa. Therefore there is a strong taste of Africa present in the clothing, food and culture and in every sense. This zone in Brazil is very picturesque and beautiful it is here where Fredsonn was born. This magazine Bahia Kids is a platform to showcase kids and support children from this region, that lack resources and opportunities.
Where are you based?
We live in Toronto, Canada. Before COVID we would travel every two months to Brazil, where we host a Kids Fashion event called Bahia Kids Fashion Week. We spend our time between both countries Canada and Brazil. However, many of our followers are based in Brazil. We have clients in Spain, UK, Russia and Brazil.
What is the age group that your magazine focuses on?
This is a Kid’s Fashion Magazine and the age range varies between 3 and 14 or 15 maximum depending on the models and their looks. We are a Kids and Teens Fashion Magazine.
What do you love most about working with kids?
We like the innocent part of being a kid. We try to help people that don’t have a platform, specially kids in Brazil that lack resources and that want to be featured and published in Magazines and share their fashion projects. The most important thing for us is kids that are happy and their smiles make us happy.
What do you look for in the photos that kids submit for publication?
Fashion. We look for beautiful, attractive and quality images with good resolution. We love diversity, beautiful children, images that have a message, well performed editorials, good aesthetic composition and that portray children in a positive manner. We don’t accept kids in bikini or bathing suit, we want to show beautiful happy children.
