Enter Our Landscape Photography Contest – You keep all rights, or the only requirement is you allow us to use your image in this magazine, Photography Magazine Extra.
Get Your Work Published. It is free to enter up to three images. You can submit as many additional photos as you would like for a fee of $5.00 per image. By entering, you agree that the images are your work, and we can use them throughout our magazine and nothing more.
You have an excellent 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. Your credits will be listed on our Gallery page below the image and then in other pages in our magazine but maybe without credits listed on the additional pages. It is that simple. We will not use it for any other purposes other than an artistic display in our magazine.
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 pictures, but we prefer them to be less noticeable.
Judging criteria: Use of color, Composition, and Uniqueness. We also take into consideration what you would have gone through to get the image. Ex: hiking 3 miles into the wilderness and climbing to the top of a waterfall so if you have a unique story behind obtaining the image please let us know. As a travel photography team, we appreciate the extent people go through to get award-winning images.
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 photos obtained from a unique angle. We hate tilted horizons. -Your Judges.
