Archive of Competitions

Here's a list of some photo contests that have previously appeared on

I've included them for your reference for three reasons:
  1. so you can see what's coming up (if they run again), allowing you extra time to take photos before the competition opens again.
  2. to give yourself a better chance of winning by studying the types of photograph that have won in the past.
  3. for general photographic inspiration and ideas.
