As many of you know I've been a professional photographer for quite a while now. And while there are a thousand magazines out there offering up contest galore ever week for your email opt-in. However, there's one that shines supreme – http://www.jpgmag.com and is unlike the others.
JPG Magazine came out of the camp that it's fun to have an assignment. So each week the present a theme "Twins, Color," or of recent "Plastic Fantastic."
What seperates http://www.jpgmag.com from other photo websites is it's Threadless.com-like community of like-minded photographers that add, vote and discuss all the imagey. Most aspects of this style of community are what you've come to expect, a profile area, gallery and WOMish invite tools. Here's the kicker though, if your photo is selected it's published in JPG's own monthly print magazine, and you get $ome do-ray-meeps. If you want drop by and see me: http://www.jpgmag.com/people/JusticeMitchell and yes I'm well aware I need to get more photos in the mix!
