NYIP 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:

One Life: an International Photo Contest 

The prizes are great for this photo contest - $10K in cash, an exhibit, worldwide exposure - but the entry fee is steep at $10 a picture so you'll want to carefully consider whether to enter or not. You can submit entries into People, Place, Things, or Ideas, basically anything that according to the contest officials "illuminates your perspective: what you love, your travels, or anything that reflects your world and experience." If you've got images along those lines and the entry fees don't scare you away, this could be your ticket to the big time... Enter by July 29th.

This contest, run by The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management, a British organization, is free to enter. They are looking for photos that are "are creative, resonant, original and beautiful. Subjects include wildlife and marine life, environmental degradation, street photography and urban lifestyles, technology, landscapes and portraiture." There are some pretty specific guidelines for each category so I urge you to read the contest rules carefully. The winners will share a  £5,000 prize as well as participate in an exhibition and be published in the magazine WEM. The deadline is July 31st.
The Society of Sport and Event Photographers (SEP) is holding their 5th Cover contest. To enter, submit up to five sport, event or action images. The deadline is August 29th and the winner receives a one-year membership to SEP, along with a feature in Action News and their winning image on the cover. You don't need to be a member of SEP to enter and there's no entry fee. Images must be unpublished and you'll need model releases, so head on over to their Web site for all the pertinent rules.

This isn't just a photo contest - it's actually a contest looking for a photo of "a small business that embodies the passion and innovation that makes America great." But, if you are the photographer who submits the photo that best illustrates that business, by popular vote, you'll win a trip for two to Washington, D.C. So, if you know a business that fits the bill, take a shot at entering this contest. You have until July 13th.
