It seems that either competition season is upon us, or I'm the new Dreamstime contest guru. Interesting photo contests keep popping up in magazines and on web sites that I frequent. Entering contests not for all of us, but for photographers who are so inclined, it's a great source of publicity.....and some extra cash for the winners.
The latest one that I've run across is the Smithsonian Magazine 6th Annual Photo Contest. The entry deadline is December 1. There are 5 categories in which to enter and various levels of prizes. It's worth taking a look at the prospectus. It means wonderful exposure in the Smithsonian Magazine at the very least.
