Recently I joined a site called Photocrowd. Lately I’ve been more into artistic photography and Photocrowd is a site where you can post your photos and enter a bunch of contests on all kinds of photography subjects.
You can start posting and entering contests for free, but if you like the site, you might want to buy a subscription so you get unlimited contest entries. I recently did this upgrade and it was under $40 for a year, so not that bad really. Some of the contests offer prizes and some don’t, but it is the fun of entering and giving it a try that appeals most to me.
Several of the contest themes have even inspired me to go take photos I probably wouldn’t have thought of taking otherwise. I love seeing how others interpret the subject matter in their own photos as well.
So far, my photos aren’t doing great in placing at the top of the contests, but I’m not sure if that is because I’m new and don’t have much clout on the site yet, or if I need to step up my photography game lol. I’m hoping it is the former, but I am always working on improving myself and my art too.
If you happen to be on Photocrowd too, check out my profile and show my pictures some love if you want to ♥
(BTW, I have NO business affiliation with Photocrowd, I just genuinely have been enjoying the site!)
