Why pay for something that you can harness the spirit of PT Barnum to get? Digital Media Group (DMG), the company that runs the LCD screens you see on Shanghai’s subway platforms and subway cars—as well as those in Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Chongqing, Tianjin and Nanjing—and which aims to use US $30 million in private investment to propel it towards a US $150 million IPO on the NASDAQ next year, is asking you to submit digital photos for use as content on their advertising network channels. Send submissions as 1024×768 pixel JPGs to [email protected] for consideration. The call for photos, seen on subway LCDs today, makes no mention of profit sharing or retained copyrights. Maybe Shanghai’s many talented photographers will be willing to submit, or maybe not.
Less moneyed and more likely to respect your Creative Commons license, Shanghaiist welcomes you to share photos on the Shanghaiist Contribute page. Simply tag your Flickr photos with the word “shanghaiist”.
