Hereâ€™s a new publishing idea from JPG Magazine: all its content is generated by its online community of photographers and writers.
JPG, which bills itself as the magazine of brave new photography, is espousing a publishing model that works together with an online community to produce a printed magazine.
Issue 11 of the magazine is now out, and it validates JPGâ€™s success with its new Writing Tools by publishing quality submissions from its users.
Hereâ€™s how it works: submit your best photos to jpgmag.com according to the current theme outlined by the magazine. The online community of your fellow photographers will vote on your photo; many votes do not guarantee publication, but it helps. Itâ€™s the editors who will make the final selection.
If your photo is published, you get a yearâ€™s subscription to the magazine plus $100.
Themes for Issue 12 are Family, Fashion and Creative License.
