Spring 2018 Photo Contest

Enter our Spring Landscape Photography Contest

Enter Our Contest – Get Your Work Published.

It is free to enter up to three images. It will be $10.00 per additional images. You can enter as many images as you would like. By entering you agree that the image is your own personal work.

You have a very good possibility of getting your work published. We are a newer magazine and have plenty of room to publish your work in many of our articles.  You must supply your name and location that the image was taken. You will retain all writes to your photo. We only obtain the right to display your image in our magazine with your credits each time we use it. It is that simple.

If there is a person in the image and they are recognizable you must supply a model release form with the image at the time of entry. Remember, this is a landscape contest. We are looking for landscapes but will not rule out humans in images.

Here are some clues: We love colorful images. We can spot perfect composition a mile away. We frown on images with close-up or too many people in them that do not focus on the landscape. We love uniqueness and images obtained from a unique angle. We hate tilted horizons. -Your Judges.
