Entering a photography contest is as much about winning as testing, hence improving your photographic skills.
This is a contest just commences by joint effort of the Popular Photoraphy and Adobe. The Grand Prize winner will be published in an upcoming issue of Popular Photography magazine, recognized on PopPhoto.com, and receive a 2-night stay in New York City for a photo excursion and tutorial with a Popular Photography editor.
The Reader's Choice winner will be selected by Web site visitors and recognized on PopPhoto.com. Be sure to come back to view, rate and comment on other submissions!
Both the Grand Prize and Reader's Choice winners will receive full copies of Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® 2. In addition, by entering this contest, you will automatically have the chance to win one of five full copies of Photoshop® Lightroom® 2.
I've seen some of the entries and am sure that I've come across much better ones in some of the blogs and fora I regularly visit.
