I recently read a pretty good article on the Photo shelter blog about which photography contests may or may not be worthwhile to enter. The blog entry had comments from the winners themselves. The main concerns were costs vs. benefit ..interesting perspectives – read them here.
In the meantime, here’s a contest that’s free to enter for all community college students – the catch? Specific categories and the potential use of your image to market community colleges – however – the prizes are great and I can say that as a former judge – the crop of photographs from which to choose has been slim pickings in the past – which means your chance to win is pretty good. Plus, if you copy me in on your entry – I’ll give you extra credit points!
The 6th Annual College Seen Photo Contest is just around the corner! Students have the chance to win a $500 cash award, Adobe Creative Suite 6 Design Premium, and a Wacom Intuos4 Extra Large pen tablet! The contest begins on September 4th and the submission deadline is October 31st! Last year, student Percy Manriquez from CCSF won the “Conceptual Category”. It’s free to enter – so there’s no excuse not to try – CCSFers have taken prizes the last several years so do us proud and enter today.
