    Great to hear the project hasn't died. Will keep watching out for calls for entry. Looking forward to put in my bit, even if it may not be selected for final publication... that is all part of the game.

    Which makes me think, would it be an idea to create a special (temporary?) APUG gallery of all photos that "Didn't make it"?... A bit similar to National Geographics last page "Photo that didn't make it" in the NG magazine? If so, it might be best to publish it sometime (3 months, half a year?) after the book has been published, when the first excitement and frustration has died down... to avoid overly heated discussion of "Why hasn't this photo been included?!"

    Any updates on the APUG book or has the idea died a death?

    I'm interested in participating (and helping to organize) this book, if the project is still feasible.

    I would like to enter some pinhole landscape images myself, like :

    and

    The OP hasn't been active on APUG since June 2012. Unfortunately the project ground to a halt.

    Probably best just to let sleeping dogs lie on this one...

    "There is very limited audience for the arty stuff, and it is largely comprised of other arty types, most of whom have no money to spend because no one is buying their stuff either. More people bring their emotions to an image than bring their intellect. The former are the folks who have checkbooks because they are engineers, accountants, and bankers—and generally they are engineers, accountants and bankers because they are not artists."

    Yes, it was a nice thought. The process derailed in a complicated mess, although not acrimonious. One of the biggest snags was figuring out how to solicit and select the images for the book. At no affordable price point could we produce a volume that would be democratic and representative of the APUG membership, so the question of how to curate/jury the book became central, with no conclusive decision ever reached. At this point in time, if someone wants to take this on as a project, I say more power to them. Just privately contact the photographers you want to have represented in the book to submit images, produce it and market it here. IF you want to associate it with APUG, talk to Sean and get his blessing to use the APUG name in marketing. But at the price point most folks here on APUG indicated they'd be willing to pay, self-publishing would lead to a very slim volume.
