Photography Contests And Challenges Make Old Ideas New Again

Want to graduate from snapshots to photography? Where do professional photographers get their ideas? This TRY FIVE will get you thinking about taking pictures in a whole new way. You don’t need a fancy (expensive) camera, either. A small point and shoot is just fine for getting started these days, and you can easily transfer your photos from the camera to your computer and upload them to enter contests – no more film, no more darkrooms, no more waiting for the photo processing at your local drugstore! So, get out your camera and start shooting!

Today, photography contests are easier to find and enter, with the internet and digital cameras making the process quick, painless, and open to anyone with the desire. Check out these five photo challenges to whet your appetite for creativity and to hone your photography skills:

1 – Fan Art Review – every month this site features a Digital Artwork of the Month Contest, along with several other Photo Contests – you can even create your own contest on their site!

2 – Breakfast Stock Club – AWAI offers several wonderful photography classes, and also hosts a monthly photo challenge. Join the Breakfast Stock Club for great tips and ideas to take your photography to the next level.

3 – Ultimate Photo Battle – a weekly online photo competition. Users submit and then vote on each other’s photos.

4 – Masterpieces Made Simple – this online photography contest is for cell phone photos!

5 – Art Pants – visit this site to see a year-long challenge that 2 friends created to inspire each other and go outside their comfort zone.

Or, come up with your own challenges. Do you have a buddy that you take photos with? Try to challenge each other by coming up with monthly or weekly photography challenge ideas! Winner buys lunch. The point isn’t winning, though some sites offer nice prizes – the point is to take the challenge ideas and challenge yourself to think outside the box, try something new, learn a new technique, or just practice your craft.
