Hi, Professional Photographer Magazine :) What's the link to this month's contest? I haven't found it on the website's home page, so I wondered if you changed up the website. If so, please provide the new link to the contest. Thank you for your consideration. :) Sincerely, Marie :)
Hi,
The link for the January 2017 edition on the ppmag.com site only takes you to the February 2017 edition.
I was trying to download the Jan one as I hadn't done so in January - somehow I went from December to February and was totally oblivious when the Jan edition was released.

Could that be fix please. I love reading each digital edition. Thanks so much.
