How do I apply for a gallery at The Pin-up Files?

The Pin-up Files has been successfully promoting pin-up since 2001. Whether you are well established or relatively new to pin-up, share in our high web traffic and showcase your work where it counts!

Galleries are available to members only. Membership approval is based on our personal taste and what we consider would be a good fit for The Pin-up Files. If we decline your application it is no reflection on your talent.

To apply for membership tell us a little about yourself and include your website address so that we can review your work. Email us at

We receive a lot of applications but we will try to make our final decision as quickly as possible. We currently have a waiting list.

Membership benefits

We create a personalised gallery for you containing:

  • Up to 28 images of your work
  • Space for your CV, biography, creative passions and what you offer potential clients
  • A banner link to your own website generating quality traffic and improving your own search engine rankings
  • Links to your social media outlets

In addition, we will, on request (and where appropriate), publicise your latest work, gallery exhibitions, magazine covers and publications via our own social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter.

The membership fee for the first year includes setting up your gallery and gallery maintenance. Gallery maintenance includes text revisions and an average of two image updates per month - simply email us when you need to.

We want you to be happy with your gallery and it will not go live until you give the go-ahead!


  • Membership for the first year is $80
  • Membership is then renewable annually at $40*

If you now longer wish to renew, we will continue to display your gallery but no further gallery maintenance will be carried out. Your gallery can be deleted at any time on your request.

Want us to sell prints of your work?

If we feel this would be commercially viable for us we will also consider selling prints of your work via our sales site. If you are already selling prints elsewhere please tell us where and we will see if we can match those prices. Commission and terms are open to negotiation.

*We will always strive to keep renewal subscriptions as low as possible, but we reserve the right to review this figure prior to renewal and will advise members of any changes in advance.
