Each photographer selected for the JRNL 7 Winter 2021 Issue will receive 2 full portfolio spreads to present their work to be accompanied by a written statement from the editors, gifting them with a powerful and lasting endorsement from the best of the photography industry. In addition one JRNL 7 photographer will also be awarded both covers for even greater exposure and recognition. As soon as the first press run is received, a complimentary JRNL 7 physical copy will be mailed to each published photographer free of any cost.
