Contest roundup

The Microsoft Future Pro Photographer contest is a doozy. You could win a $20,000 grand prize plus a digital workflow package which includes a Dell Precision workstation, a Canon EOS 30D, a Corbis portfolio review and a lot more. Or a $2,000 prize in three categories: Nature & Landscape; People & Portraits; and Fine Art. The $2,000 prizes also include the digital workflow package sans portfolio review. Deadline is May 31.

If food is your thing, the Seeds of Change photography competition is for you. The competition theme is “Feed Your Imagination” and has three categories: food and people; food for thought; and food, glorious food. The first place prize is £10,000. Deadline is June 30.

Finally, military veterans have a chance to jump start a photography career by winning a photography franchise! TSS photography is going to give away a franchise worth $20,000 to the winner of their nationwide essay contest.

  • Too bad the MS future pro is limited to students over 18 and registered in an accredited photography course. minimum a 2 year program and up.! Darn – what’s wrong with self taught?

    The Seeds of Change competition doesn’t list age or schooling requirements but one must “be available for publicity” which I suspect means a winner must be prepared to travel to the UK to collect their prize? That will eliminate me easily!

    Contests get more complicated all the time it seems, but rarely do I see prizes of interest so I’m rarely inspired to participate. These however are far more useful but then too limited in their requirements! Ah well! Better luck next time!
