Overview photo contests week 38 (14-20 september) [UPDATED]

in Photography2 years ago (edited)


I really like photography contests. They stimulate me to think creatively and force me to go out and take pictures.
When I recently joined Hive I discovered that there are several photography communities and they all have their own photography contests. Apart from that I found out that there were even more photo challenges in other communities.
All these contests have their own schedules, subjects, rules and prizes. I found it hard to keep track of all the photography contests; all the posts, subjects and all the different deadlines, so I decided to create an overview of all the contests I found.

This blog contains the overview of a photography contests for the coming week with all the necessary info. At the bottom of this post is a table with all the contests.
You only have to check out which contest you would like to join.

Please let met know if you like this idea with an upvote, by reblogging it or leave something in the comments. You can also mention other people in the comments.
If this initiative is appreciated I will do this weekly.

Good to know other contest, thanks!!

You're welcome! The more the merrier 😉

Nice over view and I join in three of them. Only thing is that we amateurs always loose from the pro’s so that’s a thingie. But great idea

Competing with pro's does make you better. But I admit it can also be discouraging. Have you already joined the PhotoFeed Contest too? This one has seperate prizes for amateurs and pro's.
Could be something for for the organisers of other contests to look into as well.

Thank you very much for your mention 🙂

You're welcome! I'll try to make one every week 😊

Bang, I did it again... I just rehived your post!
Week 29 of my contest just started...you can now check the winners of the previous week!
