The Meridian Project - Ambassador needed
Posted August 19th, 2011 - 12:56 pm by from Beijing, China (Permalink)
Ahoy, fellow shutterbugs!

Recently, a few friends and I started working on a crazy idea: creating an electronic magazine, which will contain contributions (texts, images, sounds etc.) from talented people all over 24 main time zones of the planet. Its name: The Meridian.

The main objectives of this project are the following:
- to provide young artists or 'normal people' with a great platform through which to express their talent, and show their work to a large public;
- to channel the creativity of people with very unique cultural backgrounds and lifestyles, around common themes.

We intend to distribute this magazine in the shape of an "App", which will be made available for download on all sorts of 3G cellphones, iPhones, iPads etc., as well as on normal computers.

Once the magazine is launched in its final shape, the authors of all selected works will be financially rewarded.

To kick-start everything, we created our own CS group. However, among the contributions we received, there still is none representing the Big Apple - or even the entire US! As you'll agree, this is unacceptable.

So how about you come and join us, and tell us more about what's to be found in that amazing metropolis -- whether you now live, grew up, or travelled there?

Hope to find an "ambassador" among you soon!
