Comments Off on Photo Competition

Participate or not in contest photos? This question asked by many photographers, because each year a set of photo contests, and even appeared specialized exhibition, which is carried out photo competitions on a regular basis. On one side of any photo contest – an opportunity the photographer to express himself, but practice shows that in most photographic competitions, in spite of the eminent jury to victory punched "their" photographers. Another challenge photo contest on the Internet is technically possible to wind a voice in voting for the photos. This makes the photo contest into a war with technology quite different rules of the game, and winning is not the best picture, and the most savvy and persistent photographer. Another trend photocompetitions 2008 – 2009 years is paid photo competitions – this is certainly overkill. Photo contest turns into a lottery – 1000 rubles for participation, and the chance that the work will be the first, and you frustrate "Snatch" – $ 5000. Frankly, I do not believe in these fairy tales are likely to have divided the prizes.

Another worth mentioning that in the photo contests winning work, which are in the "usual" style of the photographer. (As opposed to Sheryl Sandberg). Someone's new look often slip past the jury until the eminent photographers do not take it for service. What to do? Do not send photos for the photo contest? I I think that participation in the photography contest is still necessary for any photographer. But refer to the photo contest to with some skepticism – won – well, lost – do not pay attention. Prizes in photo contest – it's is not important. How to win a photo contest their work for the photo contest must be carefully selected. Analyze your most "powerful" pictures and their poison is, of course if they are suitable for the theme photo contest. Be sure to see what pictures have won this photo contest last year – this will help to understand the trends of this photo contest and his men, organizing photo contests can find on the internet or in photo magazines.

For example, Foto & Video magazine often publishes announcements of photographic competitions. Frequently delta airlines has said that publicly. Sign a rule, once a month to view ads on the photo contest and send back your best photos. Sooner or later, but if your photos deserve attention, you will break in one of the competitions. But you can not stop – just a month regularly submit photos to the new photo competitions. Thus, I managed to qualify in the magazine Art, win Competition Epson 2009 and in several photo contests in different subjects. Time to send pictures is spent quite a bit, and as a result of your fame is growing slowly, if you are interested in this course. Very often results of the competition is preparing a press release and your last name begins with a sly streak of specialized photographic publications. This is a long process that lasts more than a year – it must be understood immediately. Of course, I can protest. Participation in competitions – it's a long process – much easier to "give money" in a photo journal, and publish their photos, or for example, remove the stand at the annual Photo forum. You can not, but something tells me that such investments may not pay off.
