NYI Contest Watch

NYIP's Contest Watch provides information on international, national and regional photo contests that you might want to enter. Here are the lastest photography contests to check out:

PDN Photo Annual 2011


You'll have to act fast if you want to enter this contest from Photo Distric News. They've just extended the deadline to February 17th. The entry fee is steep -- we're not normally a fan of photo contests that have entry fees (too many of them just operate to make money and aren't legit) -- but this is PDN. So, if you're up to some serious competition, enter your images into any of these categories: Advertising, Magazine/Editorial, Photo Books, Photojournalism, Sports/Documentary, Corporate design, Photo Products, Personal, Stock Photography, Web Sites, Student Work or Video. The prizes are terrific too -- $20,000 worth of cash and prizes including an awards celebration in NYC, publication in an issue of PDN and on their Web site, $15,000 Arnold & Augusta Newman Foundation Prize for New Directions in Photographic Portraiture, the Marty Forscher Fellowship Fund professional award of $3,250, and a student award of $1,750, and the Sony Emerging Photographer Award of a Sony Alpha camera, a cash scholarship, and an article in the next issue of Emerging Photographer Magazine.

Elpis Double Takes Photography Competition

Elpis the social networking and collaboration platform, is having a contest to find images of the most original, innovative and fun ways of recycling or re-using things. Their examples include "anything, in any style, that shows how things can be re-used or recycled. The more unusual or fun the better. It could be a small, everyday object like a drinking glass or handbag, or something bigger like a wind turbine made from yacht sails or a bike made from washing machine parts.". You'll need to join Elpis to enter but you could win a DSLR and other prizes. Enter by March 1, 2011.

Bissell Most Valuable Pet Photography Contest

Bissell, the vacumn cleaner company, is holding their fourth annual Pet Photography Contest, so you might want to start chasing your favorite dog or cat around the house with your camera. The Grand Prize includes $10,000 to favorite pet charity, $500 pet shopping spree, a Bissell pet vacuum or deep cleaner, and your animal photo on a Bissell box. Other prizes include a $5,000 donation to a pet charity for the second-place winner and $1,000 donations for each of the third-, fourth- and fifth-place winners. Each of the runners up will also be featured on a BISSELL pet product package and receive his or her choice of BISSELL's pet clean-up products. And, since this is one of those contests where the public can vote for their favorite pet picture, there are also weekly winners of a $25 gift card.You have until April 5, 2011 to enter.
