Thought for the day: Ways to Lose a Photography Contest

I was the judge for a local camera club earlier this week.  They have some lovely images.  But while evaluating the photographs I realized that some people in every contest make little errors that hurt their chances of winning. This is a partial list:

  • Images that are in the wrong category (a color picture in a Monochrome competition).
  • Submitting two similar photos (that compete with each other)
  • Over sharpening (easy to see white lines around details)
  • Titles that are weak or do not read well. Titles will be read and in some categories (Journalism for example) are a critical part of the story.
  • Images that do not reflect the title

About the Author:

SlickPic was created by a group of like-minded photographers and photography-enthusiasts who wanted a service that wouldn't force them to conform to a certain style or niche, but one that would allow them the freedom to use their photos to tell whatever stories they want. They wanted a service that was capable of storing, showcasing, sharing, and displaying photos in all the different ways people use photos: some are meant just for family, some are taken for friends, and some are made for the world to see.
