Photo District News (PDN), a 40-year-old photo publication and staple of the industry, is shutting down. The magazine’s owner Emerald Expositions has confirmed that they will be shuttering both the print and digital sides of PDN in order to focus more of their efforts on PhotoPlus, WPPI, and Rangefinder.
PetaPixel was told of PDN’s coming shutdown by multiple industry sources over the past couple of weeks, but we’ve held off covering the news in order to allow PDN and its owner Emerald to share it in their own time. However, earlier today, AI-AP officially published the news alongside a statement from Emerald confirming PDN’s shutdown and discussing their future plans.
