Hey,

I thought this might be an interesting question...Who here regularly enters photo contests? If so, which ones are you entering?

I used to, but photography stopped being a contest a while back for me. I usually don't like the image harvesting rules of most contests saying that they can use your image as they please just by entering the contest (no winning or reward offered) I can understand doing so for an image the winner(s) entered in consideration for the prixe offered....but not for every image entered.

So for me....not any more unless its like a club kinda thing and its good hearted sharing.

I have only submitted to one commercial contest and I have to agree with Roman in that I resent having to give rights away just to enter a contest.

No more for me unless a club thing (if I join a club)

I agree, why give your photos away just to enter a contest you probably won't win. DAve

I still do the local county fair and state fair. Mainly because my young son wants to do it and I want to keep him interested. So, we compete to see who does best each year. Sadly he's whipping me at the state level bad, LOL!!

I routinely enter the twice monthly contest at my camera club. The best part of the contest is that the judging is done at the club meeting and everyone gets to hear the judge's critique of everyone's photos. The feedback is invaluable. I highly recommend participation in these sort of events.

I'm not terribly thrilled about the large contests. I'm not into photography for the competition.

Dave is right, local photo contests that have qualified judges are very helpful!

Go to the State Fair, mainly because it forces me to shoot things I don't normally shoot. Only one category for Nature Black and white and one color, Shoot architectural, people, etc. to make worth while going. Get a nice little check and I do mean little and friendly competition.
