We see a lot of photo contests cross our desks, and they all have their theme and merits. Are you looking fro exposure, prizes, a place to put your image?
Maybe you just need some confirmation that someone other than you and your computer screen think there is merit in your photographs.
Whatever the reason, we will soon be listing more of these on our RESOURCE page, so you can decide for yourself.

They will own the image, if chosen, but what do you care, honestly?
They will use their dollars to promote those images.

It’s what we call crowdsourcing.

It was a natural for us as the “lunch with…. “series has been posted on Facebook and we have been shooting meals for over 20 years.
That is also how we conceived the Let’s Do Lunch! photo contest, which will be happening again, starting in a few months.
Food is a true element in our personal portraits. What we eat, when we eat it, and with whom, speaks volumes about us and our culture.
This Domino’s contest is accepting entries til July 26th.
Why not get your props delivered hot for once?
