THE BURNING QUESTION
NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT!br>
PhotoCounter serves the photo industry in Australia and New Zealand with an independent, 'hand-made' news service not available in other parts of the world. PhotoCounter goes out to a limited industry-only subscription list, so potential advertising revenue is also limited. We are seeking a modest financial contribution from readers - a voluntary subscription fee, if you like - to build a new Forum and Classifieds section for readers, and to ensure the website and regular newsletter can continue. As well as supporting a home grown photo trade news service, you will be recognised on the 'PhotoCounter Supporter' page.
(Just leave us an email address if you'd like to be acknowledged on our Supporters page and we'll be in touch for your listing details.)
