Default Contests?

Do any of you enter photos in contests? I'd love to have a thread where we can post any contests that we know about. I love entering them and maybe someday I'll win something! LOL

I haven't entered any contests outside of Fine Art America. I would like to, one day, when my photos are up to snuff. I believe the major manufacturers (Canon, Nikon) have contests quite frequently.

My husband belongs to several Facebook groups that do contests,of course there's nothing to win other than the Joy of Winning and sometimes the winner gets to pick the next Theme for the Next Contest.

I agree though it would be cool to submit work to an actual contest. Sometimes just being willing to submit a photo is a confidence booster because you are at the point where you think your work is "good enough". That's always the hardest part sometimes because aren't we our own worst critics?

Absolutely agree with you. I was so VERY scared when I submitted my first photo to a contest but as I looked over the other entries, I realized that mine were at least as good as theirs. I've gotten better with the confidence part but realize that I still have a whole LOT to learn!

I'll see if I can find some contests and post them. It would be great to have a list of the monthly contests out there.

Here's some to get things started:

Have a monthly and then some others (yearly for example, entry fee for the yearly):

Photography Contests | Photo and Gear Contests | Popular Photography

Thanks Andrew! When they make me mod of this forum, I am going to sticky this thread so it stays at the top and we can add to it.

I checked this one out Andrew! I also looked at last years winners and all I can say is WOW! I am going to go hunting for a good pic to enter though. The colors are coming to a peak here and they are gorgeous so will see what I can find.
