Enter these Photography Contests

Should We Pay to Enter Photo Contests?

Our local galleries advertise a call for entries to about four exhibitions per year.  The cost is usually around $30. for up to three entries.  I pay for the entries whether my work is chosen for exhibition or not.

The same is true for online submissions to contests.  While some are free, most online exhibitions charge a fee for entry.  Much of the time, we’re helping the online website continue to prosper, sometimes we’re paying for a juror, and sometimes if I see a juror who I would LOVE to see my photos I will enter a contest just for that reason.

Here are a few contests I ran into this morning.  And their costs and deadlines.  Additionally, some of the contests are subject specific or have a theme.

The Picture Compete contests, Aging, My Home, and Childhood are closed and past deadline, but you can sign up to be informed of 2014 contests.

I find it helpful to see what the judges have selected in the past as winning images.
