Hi. If you're an amateur or pro photographer who would like to try entering your photographs in competitions, you've come to the right place.

Receive an update every time a new photography contest is added- see options in the column to the right.

Whether you win or not, entering competitions can be a great way to improve your photography skills, motivate you to stretch your photographic range, and to show your talents to a large audience. Take a look at the article: Tips for Winning Photo Contests. Readers have added their own tips in the comments section and you're welcome to add your own.

    what are the latest comps? They all seemed to have finished?

  8. I think I've seen the first ever blog provides the opportunity for newbie or unskilled photographer. It sounds good and being prepared for upcoming photo contests with improving skill.

  9. I have read many blogs in the net but have never come across such a well written blog. Good work keep it up

    I volunteer with a mental health photography group in Victor Harbor, SA, which has been running now for over 3 years. We have become a great social group and entered our first competition a few months ago and the guys got so much pleasure in seeing their photos on display. We don't have any professional guidance, we just bumble along, but have managed to take some fantastic shots! This site will be a informative platform for me to access any competitions we can enter in the future.

    1. I'm a big fan of just bumbling along. Feel free to send links to your group's photo competition entries. I'm sure we'd all love to see their work.
