PhotoGuides is now open to contributors. Now you can write articles for photography or photoshop and share them with the whole PhotoGuides community. It’s a system that should take PhotoGuides to the next level, delivering even more great new content and sharing the ideas and talent of the photographers and designers among us. Whats in it for you? The experience, the reputation, and the chance to promote your own website and work in return for your ideas.
There are a few reasons for the introduction of this contributors system. One of which is to meet the demand of the rapidly growing community. It’s something I can’t do myself, especially because in just 3 days time I’ll be beginning one of the hardest, busiest, most time consuming years of my life.
For those who don’t know, I’m a 16 year old Australian student, and I’m about to enter my final year, year 12. It’s the year that churns 13 years of schooling into a single 3 digit number (The VCE Enter Score), which will define my university course and potentially my future. Year 12 is a very demanding school year, and in order to get the best result I’ll need to be focusing all my attention on my studies. Sadly, this means there won’t be much time left over for PhotoGuides.
The new contributors system will help to make PhotoGuides far more independent, but at the same time it will help the website and community to grow far beyond anything I could achieve on my own.
Every article you submit will contain an authors box at the bottom, holding a picture, a short bio, and a link to your website, twitter, flickr or whatever else you wish to share. You’ll gain exposure for your work and you’ll be able to share your ideas to tens of thousands of visitors.
I’ll be accepting both photography and photoshop guides and tutorials. More information can be found over at the contributors page. Just fill in the contact form sharing any ideas you may have, as well as your website, flickr or other portfolio if you have one. I’ll then be in contact with you and you can start writing for PhotoGuides right away.
Thanks, and I hope we can work together to share great new content with the whole PhotoGuides community.
