Anyone can take photos. However, to some extent, people need to be able to see it in order for it to be validated as a “good photo”.
At GOHHA, we believe that one good way to get your photos out there is to join photography contests. This way, a group of experts can take a look at your photo. Most often, the work of finalists will already be shown to a great number of people. It is also a good way to get your name out there.
Atop of everything, most if not all photography contests have cash prizes!
Without further ado, here are three photo contests that you can join to get your name out there and for you to challenge yourself.
Travel Photographer of the Year
This photography contest is very prestigious. In fact, it may be the only one that rivals the prestige and importance of similar competitions that National Geographic puts up.
The Travel Photographer of the Year contest has been going on for 15 years. In it, photographers compete in a variety of topics and subjects. One category of note in this year’s contest is the photo portfolio category consisting of eight photos. This will really give photographers a chance to show what they got.
The deadline for entries is on October 1, with an entry of 8 to 15 Euros, depending on what category you join.
If you win, you’ll have the chance to take home anywhere from 250 to 4000 Euros. Prizes also include Fujifilm professional camera lenses, Hurtigruten voyages, and a membership to the Royal Photographic Society.
The International Color Awards
This photography contest is on its 12th year. It recognizes photographers whose work has done amazing things in the field of color photography.
Professionals will need to pay $35 for a single image entry, and amateur need to pay just about $30.
The prize for photographer of the year is $1500. The contest ends on October 2018.
This contest is interesting to join as it is very specific in what kind of genre it has. There are also numerous ways to win prizes too.
There are so many more photography contests in 2018 and 2019 left. Take your best photos and enter them.
