I have been in the industry for quite some time and I love participating in the online photo contests. However due to various reasons I have not be participating in as many contests as I would like to participate. As a result I have been failing to reap the benefits of participating in the top photo contests. One of the major reasons which made me stop considering many photo contests is the safety issues that crop up with these contests.
When I search for photo contests I come across numerous contests but from the experience of some of my friends I have started treading very slowly and carefully in picking up these contests. It is easy for anyone to easily get into trouble if one is not cautious in selecting the contests.
In order to overcome such safety issues and risks, I started looking for web directories that list pre-screened photo contests. I was lucky to find this directory, which lists free photo contests. I was surprised to see so many free contests listed in this website. I noticed that all the contests featured here have already been screened for their safety and reliability. This has made my life simple as I can now pick any contest from this website and start working on it because I know they are all safe contests.
All the photo contests were not only free contests but they were also contests that had cash prizes. It was very encouraging to see so many contests with cash prizes. Unlike the many other contests featured online all the contests here in this directory actually gave away the promised prizes. So I know if I do a good job in getting the best photos, I would stand a good chance in winning those cash prizes. After participating in a number of contests, understand how online photo contests work and I understood the dynamics fully. Once that happened I started winning in these contests. It was not as difficult as I thought. Of course initially I had to allow myself some time for the learning curve.
New contests are updated in this directory regularly. I have stopped looking for the photo contests elsewhere because I found everything I needed right here in this website. I do not think it is possible to find such an exhaustive selection of photo contests all in one place. This website has taken the trouble to screen the contests before they are featured here. So it is not just automated compilation of the online contests scraped blindly from other sites but careful human efforts go into these listings. I save a lot of time now and it is very helpful in my career. I can participate in as many contests as I like. There are no restrictions what so ever. I just need to select the right contests based on my skills and my preferences on the genres. One of the best source I have found so far online for the photo contests.
