JPG Magazine has over 224,000 photographers submitting their work online. The magazine then features best voted pictures in their print version. Interesting concept to keep both worlds happy – isn’t it?
Good to see this magazine back on track after a sad shutdown in January 2009 as it couldn’t sustain itself due to extraordinary economic times (why this always has to happen to good projects!). The team at JPG even put all the past issues online then for free download as the site was also going to be closed with a sad note:
We wish we could have found a way to leave the site running for the benefit of the amazing folks who have made JPG what it is, and we have spent sleepless nights trying to figure something out, all to no avail.
With a comeback by some angle investor after four months in May this year, JPG is simply flourishing.
