For those wishing for some good news this Tax Day, we just might have some for you. Digimarc for Images is sponsoring a new online community called "The Emancipated Artist" which is geared specifically for photographers, illustrators and other graphic designers who want to make a living from doing what they love. The site?s goal is to provide an educational and collaborative environment to help you go from serious hobbyist to successful freelancer or business owner.

Emancipated Artist isn?t just blog posts, forum topics and contests (although you?ll discover all are included). The folks at Emancipated Artist hired a professional researcher to be on the watch for useful information about how to successfully get your own business off the ground: attracting your first customer, dealing with clients, pricing your work, and finding answers to your copyright, legal and tax-related questions. All of which can be found in the Useful Info section.

In the Forum and Blogs sections, members will be able to interact with each other ? ask questions, share what has worked as well as what hasn?t. Currently the Forum is divided into the following areas of interest:

As with each new online community, its members are integral to the direction and success of the community. With that in mind, we hope you will be one of the first to join the conversation at www.theemancipatedartist.com. So what are you waiting for? Visit today!

Wish the buzz of your alarm clock didn?t mean another day working for ?the man?? To signal your commitment to following your passion, Emancipated Artist encourages you to upload a short video (no more than 60 seconds, please) of you ?silencing? your alarm clock for good. Those that stand-out will be featured on the site + @EmancipatedArt on Twitter.

Upload your video here.
