This week we’re talking about Not For Print, the MediaLive International GIF Exhibition, performance updates, a new iOS version, this week’s giveaways, and bug fixes. Let’s get into it.
Not For Print Issue 02
Generously supported by @wetransfer
Submissions for Issue 02 end THIS FRIDAY! If you’ve been on the fence about submitting, this is your last week to make it happen - so get your act together. Once submissions close our amazing team of guest curators – Joanne Leah (@joanneleah), Jordan Alan Brown (@jordan-alan-brown), Kai, Svend and Steffen of eBoy (@eboy), and WeTransfer’s Deputy Editor Suzanne Tromp (@wetransfer) – will choose 50 entries to be featured in the magazine.
We are also excited to reveal the second, top-secret cover for NFP by @carolynfigel. Heads up, when you order a copy of NFP 02 the cover of your edition will be one of two, chosen randomly .

Comment tools were shifting to a new line when rolling over the buttons on web grid mode. They no longer are.
