Lots of people love to take pictures...why not get something for it?
Besides having amazing tutorials on photography, the Pioneer Woman also sponsors photography contests on a fairly regular basis. No special cameras required...in fact, she often chooses photos that were shot with point-and-shoot cameras (really good photos, I might add). Check out the winners of her most recent photo contest here...the winner just blows my mind.
There's also photo contests sponsored by the lovely Michael Lee West at Designs by Gollum. These are so much fun to enter, especially since they tend to be food based (perfect for those of us who have an unnatural fascination with taking pictures of our food!). I've been honored to have my photos receive honorable mention in a few of them, but I realize that this is only because the contests are relatively new and still small. Once these things take off, I'm a goner.
In fact, that's why I shouldn't even be telling you this...but I'm so excited I can't help it. There's a new photo contest over at Designs by Gollum! The photo doesn't have to be from a blog entry or even a Foodie Friday entry...it just has to be a mosaic. :-)
Right now there's only two people who have submitted entries...and I am one. And, as much as I don't want to be a goner, I am really interested to see what others have to offer. So get those entries in...show me what you've got...knock me out of my proud standing as an honorable mention! Deadline for this contest - April 30.
Here's one of my entries (just to get you inspired)...
