A while back we launched the Pixativity Photographer's Directory and now, it's time to announce the APRIL *Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's Circle. This, at the same time, means that I have decided to six feet the old APC for good (as you might know).
The first PAC (March 2014) was a great success and I want to thank everybody who participated in it!
How To Qualify
If you're a professional or an amateur photographer mainly sharing your own original work in your feed, then you're eligible to ask for inclusion in the April PAC.
The difference between this circle and the old APC is that I now will be giving away FREE accounts to the Pixativity Photographer's Directory every time I share this circle. I will pick three photographer's from the circle and add them to the directory while I compile the circle (you will be notified).
(For those of you not remembering the _APC, it's one of my most shared and popular circles since I started here on Google+ a couple of years ago. Many participants have received thousands of new followers and some of the people I helped promote in the APC now boast more followers than I do! I love that! It speaks for the positiveness and quality of this circle. The PAC will be of the same high quality!_
Yes, there are rules and guidelines. :) If you want to participate in the PAC you need to do the following:
1) Plus and comment this post to show that you want to participate (you must do that here on the original post). Please state what kind of photography you're into in your comment. You also may tag friends of yours to help promote them as well. I'll add them too if they meet these guidelines. Tagging friends increases your chances of being added.
2) Reshare this post to help promote your fellow G-plussers. That way YOU will receive more attention once the circle is released. If you do not reshare, I probably won't add you to the circle since this is a joint effort to promote good photographers. YOU deserve to be reshared, right? So does your fellow G-plussers.
The post must be reshared in your personal feed and publicly.
Pages will NOT be accepted into the circle.
3) Please do NOT add external or internal links to albums, websites, blogs etc. in the comments. This post is neither the right place for advertisement nor for spam. Thanks.
4) Premium Members of the Pixativity Photographer's Directory website are automatically included in the circle. Still you should reshare this post and let me know that you did in the comments.
(How to obtain a Premium account to the PPD can be found here: http://maps.pixativity.com/join/).
If I do NOT add you to the circle there's always a reason for that. 1) You do not mainly share your own original work in your feed, 2) You are a web marketeer, SEO-specialist etc. or 3) I did not like the mix of your feed (yeah, I know, it's a very subjective thing to create circles like this) or 4) I just missed your comment of some reason – mistakes happen, I am only human.
Another thing: I cannot add everybody in one circle but be assured that I check ALL feeds and you are welcome to ask for inclusion in the next edition of the PAC.
The circle will be shared on Monday, April 7.
Now, let's make the April PAC another success story. :)
