Cover photos are bigger and better on Google+ now
), and, since I am in charge of updating our Google+ content I thought, hey, with all that space, why not feature YOUR photos in this prime real estate?
We are continuing to open the door for your submissions. Each month, a panel of judges will pick one amazing photographer to feature on the +SmugMug
page to greet visitors. The winner will also be a judge in the next month's selection. You'll also receive a SmugMug hoodie and swag care package.
To help keep this party going, we have changed our cover photo to this amazing image by +Elia Locardi
in one of his favorite cities, Venice, Italy. Elia is also our special guest judge for the first month of this
cover photo hunt, and, along with all of us here at +SmugMug
