Photography Novice?

Did you take a great photo recently that you’d like everyone to see? Maybe you have had a shot come out looking like it belongs in a magazine, but you’ve never entered a contest, or show, and you only do this on the side, occasionally. We can make it easy for you.


While all levels of experienced photographers are invited to enter our annual juried “Photo Shootout”, you only compete against others of your own approximate skill set.

If you are an amateur–never engaging in photography for pay–you will only compete with other amateurs.

If you are a novice, never having entered any kind of contest or show before, your entry fees per photo will be a little less, and your photos will only be judged against those entered in the amateur division.

Advanced amateurs, who sometimes hire out as a photographer, but don’t make a living from it, will only compete against other advanced amateurs. Hence, professionals only compete against other professionals… and children (under age 12) only compete against other children.

If you were worried that you couldn’t put a great photo in the contest because you felt like you don’t stand a chance against folks with lots of experience, and who even sell their photos for money, stop worrying! Show the world the photos that you’re so proud of. It’s you big chance!
