JPG Mag - New Life

It was announced recently that JPG Magazine would be throwing in the towel. Go here to read the their blog post or here to get a photo editor's take. The latest news is that there are now possible buyers that may be willing to take over.

From JPG blog:

We couldn't ask for a better community. In the week or so since our last email, the outpour of support has exceeded our wildest expectations. Your efforts, such as starting, writing blog posts, commenting on Twitter and Flickr, and generally making your voices heard, have provided exciting new opportunities for us.

We're thrilled to say that because of you, we have multiple credible buyers interested in giving JPG a home. We will be keeping the site up after all, and hope to have a final update in the next week or so on who the acquirer will be. Thank you for making all of this possible.
