Why You Should Enter Photo Contests.

Recently, one image of mine was selected to be a part of Photomedia Center’s 2010 Open Juried Exhibition. As an emerging photographer, I am very thrilled and honored to be included in such a fine body of work. Organization like this gives us, emerging photographers, a chance to fulfill one of the most exciting aspects of being an artist… Having your work displayed and seen by others.

When looking to submit to a photo contest, I try to find ones that don’t stress my budget, which can be hard considering that most entry fees range from $30-$40 per image. When I see an entry fee between FREE and $10, I jump at the chance to enter my work. Photomedia Center provided me such an opportunity.

Photomedia Center is a non-profit organization which promotes the creation and exhibition of fine art photography and digital media. The entry fee for the 2010 Open Juried Exhibition was $5 per image, $3 if you entered early and FREE for members.
