All about Assignments

Participating in the (more or less) monthly assignments on DT is great fun, and challenges you to go beyond your regular photography. It is rewarding in several ways:
- your accepted images are escalated to level 5 at once, wich will not only increase the price, but also results in a better search placement. It will receive 100 artificial downloads at once, although unfortunatly, you do not receive any money for those 100 downloads ;)
- participating will result in extra exposure for your picture and with that extra exposure for your entire portfolio;
- and from personal experience, I can add that getting a picture accepted into the assignment is a great feeling, and winning one even more so!

Hey Martine.
I'm the new kids on the block.. very very new.
Have been working recently with Lightroom 3.
Need a good list of keywords for inspiration.
Do you have one? Or is one available on DT somewhere?
Thanks mucho.

Yes, that is true Rabac. It dares you to come out of your 'comfort-zone' wich is a great thing! Thanks!

One other addition that I've just read is that editorial images are NOT accepted in assignments.

Great article. The best thing with assignments (in my opinion) is that you are pushed to the edge of creativity. And also you portfolio is increasing. This is the best thing. It doesn't meter if you win or not.
