We’re going to try something a bit new around here. To help promote photography and encourage amateur photographers, we are going to hold amateur photo contests on our site. We will pick a category and anyone that is interested in participating can email me a photo. A few of our favorite photos will get posted on our blog where you can have your friends and family come to our blog to vote for your photo.
We’re guessing that it will start out slow but hopefully in time, word will spread about our fun monthly contest and more and more amateur photographers will be interested in getting a bit of recognition for their work.
There is no prize other than a virtual pat on the back and having your photo displayed on our website.
So…let’s give it a shot.
Since this is our first try at this, let’s keep the category very wide. The first category will be water.
Please email me your favorite photos that involve water.
Photos should be submitted by amateurs only and the person submitting the images must have copyrights to the image.
Images should be in jpeg format and should be emailed to: .
In your email, please write:
Water Photo Contest in the subject line
In the body of the email, please include your name and the location the photo was taken. Also write info about the photo and why you like it along with any other information you want to tell me about it.
Please submit your images by August 30th at which point we will announce a new contest and post some of the top images for review and voting.
Here are just a few images to help get the juices flowing:
