Derek Powazek (formerly of JPG Magazine) has a new project. The tagline: Visual Assignments for Creative People. From the site:
Pixish is a place where people who want images and people who make images can easily find each other and collaborate on creative projects together.The collaboration part happens in the form of contests. The people wanting images come and post their assignment. Then artists can submit their photographs to these assignments. The assignments may or may not have rewards. The winner can be chosen by a community vote, or by the assignment maker. Just for fun, I created an assignment for FreshArrival. The rules are to photograph some kind of gadget in some way that the gadget itself is unidentifiable. The winning photo will be put up at FreshPhotograph and thanked heartily. I love these types of projects, with mutually beneficial results. People that need images benefit from getting to choose between a variety of submissions and they get to pay what they want to pay to get them. Artists benefit from having a place to earn from what they do best, create. The only real question is, what's in it for Pixish? But I don't think that's something that Derek has ever worried about (in a good way). The website itself, I also must mention, is designed beautifully. VISIT SITE
