This is great news for those who are good at photography and writing. It won't be hard to find the right candidates with so many talented people.

"One of our requirements is that you are at least a part-time professional photographer or videographer."

Why? There is so much talent out there, and much of it superior, from serious amateurs and retirees. Not everyone into photography wants to make a living at it and not all photography topics, worthy of being written about, have to do with earning a living from it.

I would tend to agree. I used to be a full time professional photographer, but my life has taken me in a different direction. I have no regrets, and would not change my decisions at all, as my new career actually leaves me more time to shoot what I WANT and branch into other interests such as classes camera repair. While I do not have the time or energy to be a writer right now even if I were eligible, I think having that as a requirement for application does your readership a disservice unless you are looking specifically for someone to write ABOUT being a professional. I know for a fact that there are a number of people who read this site that are not working professionals that are far better photographers than most people making. living as a photographer, and I think a solid portfolio and/or other ways to establish that one has a sufficient knowledge base to write about the topics they intend to produce should trump a "professional" status.

Hoping to hear back, since I sadly did not the last time. Best of luck to anyone and everyone who applies!

Maybe new writers might solve the issue but a writer moderator of some sort to reject the repetitive articles that appear.

An upvote to that sentiment in general but also a caveat, in that an alternative view and and new information regarding the topic can reasonably warrant similar coverage.
