Digital Photography Contest
Enter a Digital Photography Contest online!
Entering a digital photography contest can be a lot of fun. Not only will a digital photography contest enable you to compare the standard of the pictures you produce with pictures produced by other people, but entering a digital photography contest may also give you the opportunity to win fantastic prizes.
There are various contests that you can participate in online. Just do a search on the Google and then have a look to see what is on offer.
You will find that to enter some of the online contests you have join the site and become a member - sometimes without any sort of fee, but sometimes paying a monthly or annual subscription. Many of these sites also offer opportunities for members to sell their photographs online and to join forums so that you can discuss problems, techniques and whatever elements interest you.
Online competitions are also quite varied, ranging from those that require entrants to shoot according to a particular theme, to those that involve digital editing to improve or creatively change photographs.
If you don't like the idea of competing online, you can often find various competitions advertised in specialist photographic magazines that are either published online or sold through bookshops. You will find magazines that are published locally as well as those that are published in other countries and distributed internationally.
There are also many photographic societies and associations, as well as colleges and schools, that organise competitions. These offer the opportunity to network with other people with similar interests, rather than just being in a vacuum and relying on blogs and on-line forums to connect with other photographers. But real-time, real-life contests can be a lot more expensive to enter than those that are organised on-line because you will normally have to have your photographs printed out, and usually quite large prints are required. This is because many of these competitions utilise the best photographs to create exhibitions that people can then visit. But that can also be an advantage because it will give you additional exposure if you have done well.
One thing's for certain, you really will have lots of fun if you enter a digital photography contest.
