|A flea-market encounter|
1. Free entry
2. There is a clear editorial voice in the selection process. I don't mean to criticize other online photo magazines, but I sometimes feel like photo communities/magazines can take the focus away from the photos and make it more about getting lots of followers and playing networking games. Yes, there is an argument to be made for broad popular appeal, but it also nice to have a more direct editorial assessment that is completely divorced from the "followers" game.
3. F-Stop keeps an ongoing list of calls for submissions and other photography news on their home page. This is a great way to find new "epic fail" opportunities. I have found two calls for entries there that I plan on doing within the next two weeks.
