JPG Magazine, an innovative photography publication, and community, along with its parent company 8020 Media have announced that they are shutting down as of Monday, January 5th. Brad Stone covers the closure in the New York Times.

On the JPG blog, they mention that there is a small chance that they will be acquired before they close, but they don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up. 15×100 has launched a Save JPG website to help prevent the JPG community from going away.

8020 has had a troubled history, in May 2007 JPG Magazine founders Derek Powazek and Heather Powazek Champ both left the company due to a “fundamental disagreement”.
