Welcome to FPZ's first Monthly-ish Newsletter. Don't worry, this newsletter isn't intended to clutter up your inbox like spam! As the name suggests, this newsletter will only be written up and sent out about once a month to update you on current happenings at Friendly Photo Zone. You can unsubscribe at any time by using the link at the bottom of this newsletter. Our goal is to spotlight interesting articles, forum discussions, and any other features currently being focused on at FPZ.
Please note, there are still some bugs to iron out in this first edition. Expect the newsletter to improve over time!
The Sensational Traditional Wides Shootout submission period has ended, and there are a bunch of submissions to choose from. Now begins the judging period. Any FPZ member can judge the entries, and is encouraged to do so!
Simply visit this forum thread, look over the submissions, and send your top picks in a Pivate Message to blackcloudbrew. You can choose 3 colour submissions and 3 black and white submissions.
The judging period is on until October 17th, at which point blackcloudbrew will calculate the results and announce the winner!
FPZ member Leighgion is currently attending school in Beijing, China. Thanks to his foresight and dedication, he also brought a bunch of photography gear with him. So we get treated to his unique view of China.
Leighgion's distinctive style and street photography skills serve him well in this series. From free-range kids in a rural town to custom motor-trikes built from spare parts, the images he's sharing are diverse and captivating.
More entries are being added regularly by Leighgion. We're all grateful that he's taking the time to share these pictures with us while he's away across the ocean.
