We were asked to, by this week, enter at least one photography competition. I chose to go the route of online competitions, and have thus far entered two.
The first is the Pixcafe.net competition themed, “Hello Winter.” I entered the following two photos:
ISO: 100 Focal Length: 70 mm. Fstop: 8 Shutter Speed: 1/200
ISO:100 Focal Length: 70 mm. Fstop: 11 Shutter Speed: 1/400
I chose this first contest because, quite frankly, I figured if I was going to put myself out there I should enter everything I can get my hands on and see what happens. This was the first on a list of several that I intend to go after within the next day. For contest/submission rules, feel free to visit http://pixcafe.net/contest10.
I also entered the Nikon Photo Contest, which operates internationally through December 15th of this year. I have entered two photos in this contest as well, although one can have up to ten submissions and I intend to use them all. There are two category options I have utilized so far: the theme, “home”, and an open-theme submission. I have submitted the following images:
ISO:500 Focal Length: 35 mm. Fstop: 5.6 Shutter Speed: 1/1000
I submitted this image under the open category.
ISO: 500 Focal Length: 50 mm. Fstop: 8 Shutter Speed: 1/2000
I submitted this image under the, “home”, category.
This contest choice was a little more obvious. Nikon is of course a world-leading photography company, and such a contest has a much larger incentive (although I found out it is in yen, not dollars, which greatly reduced my amazement). The contest can be accessed through nikon.com.
I’ll update this post as I add more competitions, and if anything ever comes of them I’ll be sure to update the blog here as well!
