New Era: Have you seen the January 2013 New Era? You may not know, but there are actually four different covers. Fernando Camillo, manager of product awareness in the LDS Church's Curriculum Department, explains, “The New Era magazine kicked off its 2013 with four unique covers on the January 2013 issue. The magazine content is the same, but subscribers will randomly receive one of the four covers. This is part of a new effort from the magazine to ask youth worldwide to submit photos of how they choose to ‘Stand in Holy Places,’ their theme for this year. Select photos that are sent in will be featured in upcoming issues of the New Era and Liahona.” Awesome. Click here for information on how to submit!
