The "PHOTO CONTEST" Thread

How's about we submit links here for photo contests? Sure, most of them are photo grabs, but it gives us amateurs a chance to include wins/honorable mentions in our portfolio, and the chance to win some prizes and cash.

I can moderate the first post to keep it up-to-date with current contests (if this will even work at all). Please post the contest type (i.e. travel, nature, general), contest name, link, and submission date! Thanks!

Hey, listen, all links lead to the same page, where it just talks about rules and guidelines of the contest.
Doesn't mention (like what does Out the Window mean really?) anything beyond that.

Not sure to be honest, I am not running the contests -- just trying to link to them. I think it is just a theme based on the issue being released. I am sure the prize changes too from issue-to-issue. There's really no description for the current contest "Rainbows" either.

You could message them to ask.

Nice thread man!

I'm always looking for a little inspiration, and the possibility of winning a contest just for a simple shot would be really worth going above and beyond. :P

I'll keep a look out for some contests as well.

p.s: how about free "contests"? with no prize.
http://dpreview.com has some challenges and I think it's a good idea to participate in some of those to see what other people think.
