Photography contests not only give you great experience and exposure, but also give you a chance to compare your work to the photos of other talented photographers and win some amazing prizes, of course. Photography contests are also a great platform for launching a high profile career in the industry. There is no better way to get your name known by thousands of people all at once.
I have rounded up the 10 best photo contests of 2014 currently available. All of these allow you to win prizes in cash or photographic equipment, get recognition on an international level and simply have fun while shooting. Here you’ll find contests in various categories, such as portrait, lifestyle, landscape, black and white, wildlife, and many others. Along with contest names I added some brief descriptions, prizes and deadlines. Make sure to read the contest rules before submitting. Good luck!
