Unterwasser Magazine non-payment

01 November 2017 - 01:31 PM

I'm sad to report that Unterwasser - one of the few remaining print magazines to continue publishing underwater images in high quality and to pay their contributors - has now joined the ranks of delinquents. Despite monthly reminders, I have not been paid for an article with photos that appeared in the April issue, which would have been printed in March. The editors seem to be sympathetic, but can get no action from the publisher, whose official excuse is that the accountant has been sick for months, and the only assistant accountant only comes in two days a week. And yet, somehow, the water and electricity have not been turned off, the landlords have not evicted them from their office space, and the employees continue to come to work. It is only the creators - the individuals who produce the content - who are considered expendable. The executives in their corporate suites probably feel that the editors should be able to source plenty of material from hobbyists who are happy to give it away for free in order to see their names in print. Most likely they are correct. However, don't expect that if you are promised to be paid for your work there that you will actually be paid.
