Join the Photo Spot Contest!

PL Photo Spot Contest

We have just announced the Photo Spots Project and we are so excited about it, that we decided to launch a contest for our readers! We want to make the process of submitting Photo Spots not only useful for everyone, but also fun, engaging and rewarding. Yes, the latter is important, because that’s how we get to thank our readers for being so awesome! So for the next 30 days, we will be accepting entries for photo spots from everyone. One person will win a brand spanking new, freshly announced Fuji X-T10 (come on, who can resist the temptation for owning this awesome camera?). If you do not want to Fuji X-T10, feel free to pick any other camera or lens of equivalent value. You can also just claim cash prize (details below).

NOTE: Please note that our submission form had some issues earlier today. Those should be fully fixed now.

Content Sharing Contest Winner and Prizes

Content Sharing Contest

Big thanks to everyone who took part in our Content Sharing Contest poll to pick the winner of the Sony A6000. It was a close race, with both Aaron Priest and Spencer Cox dominating the poll for a while. But looks like Aaron still came out first, with 80 votes on his side, only 4 votes higher than Spencer. Congratulations to Aaron for winning the Sony A6000 and big thanks to everyone who participated – your articles generated a lot of great interest and discussions among our readers. As promised, we will be emailing each participant with request to pick their smaller prizes as well.

If you have enjoyed our contest and would like to see more future activities like that, please let us know – your feedback is always appreciated.

Content Sharing Contest: Poll

Content Sharing Contest

What an amazing month it has been – ever since we announced the Content Sharing Contest, we have received many submissions from our dear readers. In fact, we have been a bit overwhelmed by the response, which is why it took us some time to go through the submissions, pick out the ones we felt like were suitable for the site and get the articles published. On this note, I would like to thank everyone for participation. If your article did not get published, please do not feel disappointed, as it does not mean that your work is bad or not worthy of getting published. It just means that there was stronger content that we felt was more engaging and educational for our readers. I would also like to apologize for not being able to respond to every submission, as I have been swamped with travel and other work in March. We published a total of 20 articles and you can see all of them by clicking this link. Now that the contest is over, it is time to decide who gets the grand prize, the Sony A6000. I went through each post and discussed the submissions with some of our team members at PL and picked our favorite articles. Below is the list of our favorite five authors. Now we need your help in determining who provided the best content and deserves the grand prize. I know it will be no easy task to pick the winner, but your feedback is important, since the content was provided for you, our dear readers.

Photography Life Content Sharing Contest

Content Sharing Contest

As you know, Photography Life is all about sharing knowledge with our readers. Every day we work hard on bringing you the best content, whether it is in the forms of photography articles, tips, in-depth reviews or news. Because many of our readers are as passionate as we are in sharing their knowledge, they often share articles with us in the form of Guest Posts, the best of which we often feature on the site. While I was working on publishing yet another excellent guest post the other day, I came up with an idea to inspire more of our readers to write here at PL. We would like to invite our dear readers in participating in a knowledge sharing contest, in which we will reward every writer when their article is posted on the site. If your article is published, we will reward you with a $50 gift card from B&H, Adorama, Amazon or any other store of your choice as a token of appreciation, or if you prefer to be paid instead, we will transfer the sum to your PayPal account. This way, you are rewarded for your contribution even if you do not win the ultimate prize (see below for details). We will not limit your contributions, so you could submit as many articles as you would like and get paid for the work. Sounds exciting? Then read on!

Nikon Inspirations Photo Contest

Entering photography contests is one of the best ways to test yourself as a photographer. It is one thing when your family and friends admire your work, but gaining appreciation in a contest is a whole different experience. Photography is meant to be looked at and admired, and what better ways are there to start showcasing your work if not by entering a photography competition? Luckily, there are always ongoing contests that you can enter. The one I am going to introduce to you now is free, sponsored by Nikon (users of any camera system may enter) and called Inspirations Photo Contest (thanks for the tip, Rick!).
