Have you heard about the Chic Critique Forum yet?

The Chic Critique Forum is focused on providing candid critique for photographers. Whether you are an amateur or a seasoned photographer, Chic Critique Forum is the place to be when you are ready to step it up. Our forum members are strongly encouraged to offer at least one suggestion to every image they choose to comment on. Also, members can sign up for our exclusive “4-Week Critiques” with any of our Celebrity Photographers. Join a creative community of aspiring and inspiring photographers who share honest critique.


Right now Chic Critique Forum is having an April affiliate contest to see which websites can get the most new members to join. So you know there’s a little summin’-summin’ in it for me. But what’s in it for YOU?

Well funny you should ask because all new members during the month of April will receive a free digital copy of CHIC Magazine! And look what’s on page 62:

chic critique magazine packaging
CHIC Magazine

As further incentive to join, Paperie will pay for the entire 3 months of a 3-month subscription ($28 total value) for one lucky reader! All you have to do is join Chic Critique Forum and then post a comment here saying you’ve done so and are now a member. The affiliate contest ends on April 30th – so on Tuesday, May 1st we will use Random.org to select the winner from the comments here, and then we will refund the cost of one 3-month membership ($28) to the winner. So what do you have to lose? You get a free digital copy of CHIC Magazine – and have a chance to get the first 3 months of your membership free as well! It’s win-win!

(Please read Paperie’s contest and giveaway rules – and note that Paperie Boutique hosted events are open to U.S. residents age 18 and over only.)

Good luck to everyone who enters!
