Current Photography contests / March 2021

Winning photo from Nature Photography Contest

Photo Contests are a great way to work on your photographic skills. Imagine taking a photo that is a winning photo! The money, the prizes, whatever the reward, it puts you in a class of photographers that will be watched for a long time. And why do I bring up this idea of entering a photo contest? Because it is one thing that will make you use your absolute best skills to take a great photo. Perhaps, just trying will help you become a better photographer. Just the fact that you felt good enough to enter a contest, is worthy of the pride you get for doing so well.

Energy SELF Portraits 2021 - logo
Gather your family, your friends, your colleagues, your school-mates as well as the electrical appliances of your everyday life.
Take a photograph of yourselves and your appliances and tell us your story.
Energy SELF Portraits collects photographs and stories related to the theme of ENERGY, the 7th United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG7) to “Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy systems for all”, and award prizes to the most beautiful and intriguing ones.
Photography is a means to narrate the challenge of access to sustainable and modern energy seen from the point of view of end consumers. The Energy SELF Portraits strives to investigate and record the infinite contexts and implications connected to the SDG7.
The collection of Energy SELF Portraits will focus on different SDG7 dimensions such as energy access, its costs and options, its quality, its environmental implications as well as how energy efficiency and renewable energy may offer solutions to the SDG7 challenge. The nexus with other SDGs will be given particular evidence in the collection and in the narrative within the Project. The Project offers the opportunity to collect stories where energy access plays a crucial role in a number of SDG challenges, such as poverty and hunger (SDG 1 and 2), health (SDG3), education (SDG4), gender equality (SDG5), access to safe water (SDG6), decent work and productivity (SDG8 and 9), equal opportunities (SDG10), sustainable cities and communities (SDG11), responsible consumption and production (SDG12) and climate change (SDG13).
Energy SELF Portraits put the North and the South of the world together around common challenges assuring affordable energy access while protecting the environment from climate change. Deadline: April 21, 2021 . Go to: http://www.energyportraits.org

Vincent van Gogh Photo Award 2021 - logo
Deadline: March 31st, 2021, Let the theme ‘PURE’ inspire you in a contemporary way. Think out of the box, just like Vincent used to do. Surprise everyone! Let the camera be your paint brush and participate in this contest!
Pure is unmistakable for the work of Vincent van Gogh and was partly chosen as the theme for this 3rd. Vincent van Gogh Photo Award edition. An inspiring theme with many creative possibilities and freedom, and certainly something that plays in the present time.
– Is water still pure?
– Our food?
– Nature?
– Are people still pure and who and what are they, especially in this age of social media?
– Can we still be pure?
We are looking for these topics.
The possibilities are endless!! Be inspired by our theme, with your images!
There is no need to refer to-, or incorporate Vincent van Gogh or Nuenen in the photo(s).
The title of this event is a tribute to Vincent.
He recorded with a brush, what he saw and experienced.
You can do this through the lens of the camera, because maybe your picture hangs in the living and working world of Vincent in his period in Nuenen!
Let your inspiration as a photographer take its course. Go To: https://vincentvangoghphotoaward.com/en/
