It’s that time of year again…

No not the holidays but photo competition time. Can be quite a humbling experience reviewing one’s work from the past 12 months trying to figure out what is contest worthy. Each year I usually let out an exasperated “is that it" as I troll through the take!!!

Anyways be wise with your money and try to think like a judge.

Links to some contests below.

My favorites are American Photography, Communication Arts and PDN Phgoto Annual…
