    I'm an editor for a new on-line magazine and we are looking for photo submissions for the first issue which is set to release July 1st (if all goes as planned).

    It is a Canadian based magazine, therefore Canadian photographers are encouraged to submit work.

    Looking for individual photos or series. No particular theme has been set for the first issue.

    Please include your full name, location, and a detailed caption for each photograph.

    You will retain rights to the photos and small transperant watermarks are acceptable at the bottom right or left of the photo.

    Submissions can be sent to photography@asterisk-magazine.com .

    If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Since this is a brand new magazine, we are still working out a lot of the small details.

    In addition to photography, we are also looking for submissions of short stories, poems, opinion pieces, travel reviews, sports, technology reviews, and just about anything else you want to write about.

    Hey Alex..

    Either will do! It's not a mandatory policy.. just trying to encourage Canadians to submit their work because it's a Canadian based magazine.
    Since we are just starting, we will likely accept just about all submissions (within reason).

    This is simply an online magazine that is being started by 5 journalism students for Guelph-Humber Univeristy in Ontario.
    There is no money being made on this project. I am helping them gain some content.

    oh right.. I heard something about that.. we should look into it some more...

    If I remember correctly, it has to do with people sharing media (mp3s) illegally.
