Photo Contests

Photo contests are a great place to showcase you work; however, not all contests are created equal.  I encourage all photographers at all levels of expertise to enter, but my advise is do your homework. 

Several contests sole purpose, it appears, is to make money through high fees.  Research their reputations to see if there are complaints i.e. using the names of judges who were never contacted.  Visit sites like the  World Photography Organization, “whose purpose is to raise the level of conversation around photography worldwide, through a year-round programme of exhibitions, awards and competitions.”

The internet is a great place which will assist you in finding great contests like the Sony World Photography Awards, Nikon’s Small World Competition, or the International Photo Awards (IPA).

Good Luck!

Lensculture 2020

The LensCulture black and white awards are back.  A call for entries has gone out with a deadline of October 21, 2020. Show the world the beauty of black and white.  Color is distracting while black and white focus the viewer with subtle tones. It shapes moods and could remind the viewer of film noir.
