JPG's call for photographs, in which no one is rejected

JPG Magazine releases their print edition six times a year, and also has a great-looking site and photo-sharing services. They have just announced a new competition, Breakthrough: An Amateur Photography Revolution, which will run from April 20 to June 16, 2007, at The San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery.

From JPG Magazine's website:

Every photo submitted to our Breakthrough theme will be displayed in the gallery in some fashion. Some will appear in a grid on the photo wall, some in a slideshow, and a select few will be printed and hung in the gallery.

And you're invited to attend the opening! It'll take place at the gallery on April 20 at 6pm. We'll also be participating in a panel discussion on the "art and practice of photography in the brave new digital age" on May 31 at 6pm at the Koret Auditorium, San Francisco Public Library. We hope you can join us!

The creative community at large is still coming to grips with the internet's role in enabling individuals to "break through" into communities both developing and established. Is it a good thing that all who enter are accepted?
