We’re kicking off Giving Tuesday early this year! Your donation today will be matched up to $10K, doubling your impact! If you donate $50 today, the Reader will receive $100.

The Reader is now a community-funded nonprofit newsroom. Can we count on your support to help keep us publishing?

We want your submissions to our annual photo issue!

On December 30, the Reader will publish its fourth annual 1,000 Words issue, a look back at the year in Chicago in pictures.

We’d like to include your photos of 2010. No subject is too big or too small—we’re looking for everything from big news captures to perfect little details. Send your high-resolution photos, or better yet links to them on a service such as Flickr, to: 1000words@chicagoreader.com.

All photos submitted to the Chicago Reader Flickr pool throughout the year will also be considered—but if you want to call our attention to something special you’ve posted there, please feel free.

The submission deadline is midnight, December 15. If we choose your photo for publication, you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a Canon PowerShot G12 from Central Camera.
