Anyway this is still much better than in the arts and crafts department. I have one subscription of a (great) US magazine, and when you want to anticipate a challenge (with a chance of having your artwork published) you have to PAY!
Yes, really, you have to send money along with your work.
This mag is about art quilts and there are so many woman looking for recognition that they are willing to pay when sending their artwork in.
No need to say that I never entered a competion... But then again, I am not good enough either, I guess...
Anyway, that is the US now. Within a few years we are paying money to magazines to get our photographs published - mark my words!

What does professional actually mean? It means earning a living from - or trying to. I have known a lot of local 'professionals' come and go. I agree that ANYONE having work published should be paid the same rate, but the professional should then be better than the amateur to get his/her work used.

Many are not!

Professional does not mean 'good'.

Agree entirely. I'm sure we've all seen wedding photos that have cost an arm and a leg, but sadly the quality does not match the cost.

Quote: Now they have used some images from a three year old submission when they don't pay. An interesting change in their policy. Be curious to see how many other older images they resort to using. Maybe the number of submissions has declined due to the non-payment idea.

I had not actually realised that their policy had changed, but it seems that they now only pay for one set of pics as chosen by them and the rest get a mug, maybe that's apt!

Yes, it's a bit 'cheeky' isn't it?

I had seen their new policy a few weeks ago, and thought 'Fine, and good luck to them, but I don't want anything to do with it'

I suspose I could have contacted AP withdrawing my submission, but after 3 years or so without any contact I didn't think there would be a need.

Oh well, no use worrying about it now - you never know some good may come of it.

If any of you happen to go to France, pick up a copy of Reponses Photo. Sylvie Hugues does a great job as editor. By far the best photo mag I've come across since the days of Photo Technique in the UK. Pity it has to be in French!

Hi! Suddenly I've become interested in one question. What is your biggest pet peeves? As for me, I don't like rudeness concerning servers, when clients think that if they pay money, they can do everything with waiters or serving personnel. What about you?
