Check out this blog post on all the benefits of participating in consistent photo exercises like this challenge.

Why should you commit to a 52-week photo challenge? Great question, and we’re glad you asked!

Committing to and participating in a weekly challenge of any kind can be a little daunting at first, but soon becomes a beneficial habit – like taking vitamins!

To become better at virtually anything, you need to do it consistently. A weekly challenge featuring a wide variety of assignments will literally “force” you to grow as a photographer. That regular practice will bend your brain around the topic and get your creative juices flowing.

Consistent practice is one of the most important components of becoming a better photographer… but it’s hard to practice alone. So, here you have a great opportunity to do it with like-minded people who will give you constructive feedback, have the opportunity to win prizes, and ultimately could have your work professionally judged. 

Whether you are a passionate photographer or a professional, we are all creative people, so we can learn from each other and become better because of the feedback from the group. This 52-week challenge is perfect for photographers of ANY skill level.

And never fear, the challenges we will present during the year don’t require you to travel or do extraordinary things. Most often, with some imagination, everything you need to successfully complete an assignment is right in your own “backyard.” After a year, you may not recognize the photographer you’ve become!  

An additional benefit is that if you participate, in a year, you’ll have a solid body of work to add to your portfolio. Having a portfolio makes you look professional, gives you confidence as a photographer, and can open many doors.

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.
