A contest is the best place to show your worth in the photography art.

So now, we’d like to present you the list of photo contests and competitions of 2011 which, undoubtedly, will be interesting for professional photographers and amateurs as well (in fact, the list contains events which will take place from March till December 2011).

So stay current, because if you don’t the winner’s prize will be grabbed by someone else!
