Photography magazine meets Web 2.0

JPG Magazine: Themes

JPG is a real-world photography magazine that seems to be based on user-submitted pics and articles . Neat idea, but the proof is in the pudding, and... the photos are gorgeous and compelling! Users submit photos to a variety of categories, such as: Entropy, pictures of loved ones, Democracy, Danger, pictures of people working, pictures of music performance and the number 7. Registered users (free) vote on the best ones, and these make it into the magazine.

If I had some great photos, I'd submit them. The rewards aren't great for having your work published ($100 and a year's subscription), but the higher profile is probably worth it.

There isn't much advertising in the magazine at all, but if I was in advertising, I'd be contacting the artists that took these pictures, and licensing them like crazy. They're stunning!
