Photo Contest: "Sunsets 2019" with photography exhibited and photography grant


Photo-Competition.online is hosting the photography contest “Sunsets 2019”.  This contest would include sunsets and sunrises. There will be 1 grant winner and 9 honorable mentions. This competition is open to all photographers worldwide.

Almost all sunsets/sunrises are bold, brilliant, and rich in color.  Unless you want to focus more on other parts of the scenery, it usually won't suffice to say something like "the sky was bright orange and red". Figure out what's unique about the sunset/sunrise in particular and tell the story seen in their mind’s eye.

  • Ten photographers will be selected for an online group exhibit, "Sunsets 2019"; the exhibit and photographers will be extensively marketed on this website and over the internet, including YouTube.  In this exhibit the selected artist's photos along with the photographers name, title, and size of the photo will be displayed.
  • One photographer's work will be selected to receive the “Bobby Lashomb Photography Grant” of $100. This artist’s work will become the image of the exhibition and will be used on the invitation, video title screen and on all online presentations.
     
  • Ten photographers will receive an photography contest certificate through the Photo-Competition.online website and will be available for life.

Theme and Selection:

One of the most magical moments in a day is sunset or sunrise. Sunset is the time when the sun goes down in the horizon creating a beautiful view that the strongest words aren't enough to describe its magic. Indeed, the phenomenon of the sun drowning in the endless sea makes a magnificent prospect with its colors going from red to orange then a mixture of warm, dreamy colors like purple and indigo. Moreover, at some special places, trees especially palms are added to this amazing painting of mother nature looking like guards protecting this piece of art. Sunset is true magic from its colors to its protective trees given to us by the heavens.

Don't feel constrained by images - Whenever I'm describing an image and feel stuck, I search for one on google and try describing that. This is a good tool for getting started, but don't feel like you have to describe the image exactly. In the last image, I might have added something about birds flying across the sky, just because that would look pretty.

Have the sunset foreshadow the mood of the scene - This isn't always easy (I'm personally terrible at it), but when written correctly can be absolutely gorgeous. If you have two lovers watching the sunset together, highlight how beautiful it is. If your character is mourning the death of a loved one, highlight how the beauty of the sunset eventually is replaced by blackness (or something along those lines).

Eligibility: This competition is open to all photographers 18 years of age or older.

  • Submission Deadline: July 15, 2019 (12:00 Midnight EST)
  • Curator Selection: on or before July 18, 2019
  • Artist Notification: on or before July 19, 2019
  • Grant Announcement: on or before July 19, 2019

Photo Contest: "Black and White 2019" with photography exhibited and photography grant


Photo-Competition.online is hosting the photography contest “Black and White 2019”. There will be 1 grant winner and 9 honorable mentions. This competition is open to all photographers worldwide.

Color can powerful, but black and white images can evoke emotion more vividly than even the most colorful photograph by stripping away the distractions of color in a photo, baring only the essentials. Black and white images reveal tone and contrast, shape, shadow and highlight, texture, form, depth, and light quality. Capturing these elements in a photograph can be challenging unless you are a seasoned professional. Photographers must see in tone in order to take an exceptional black and white photograph. This contest challenges the photographer to see in black and white and tell the story seen in their mind’s eye.

  • Ten photographers will be selected for an online group exhibit, "Black and White 2019"; the exhibit and photographers will be extensively marketed on this website and over the internet, including YouTube.  In this exhibit the selected artist's photos along with the photographers name, title, and size of the photo will be displayed.
  • One photographer's work will be selected to receive the “Bobby Lashomb Photography Grant” of $100. This artist’s work will become the image of the exhibition and will be used on the invitation, video title screen and on all online presentations.
     
  • Ten photographers will receive an photography contest certificate through the Photo-Competition.online website and will be available for life.

Theme and Selection:

Black and white images can add mystery to a photograph. Whether it be a landscape, portrait, architecture, still life, street, abstract, etc., a photograph represents what the photographer “sees” conveyed to the viewer using a visual depiction. The curators will be looking for pure black and white, not monochrome, photographs for this contest. Creativity, quality of execution, composition, and uniqueness of vision will be key elements of the winning photo. Present your best “black and white” photographs using tone and contrast, shape, shadow and highlight, texture, form, depth, and light quality expressed using any genre from realism to abstraction.

Eligibility: This competition is open to all photographers 18 years of age or older.

  • Submission Deadline: May 13, 2019 (12:00 Midnight EST)
  • Curator Selection: on or before May 20, 2019
  • Artist Notification: on or before May 20, 2019
  • Grant Announcement: on or before May 20, 2019
  • Exhibit Opens: May 31, 2019

Photo Contest: "Reflections 2019" Cash prizes


Photo-Competition.online is hosting the photography contest “Reflections 2019”. There will be 5 Winners and 5 Honorable Mentions. This competition is open to all photographers worldwide.

Reflections can be mesmerizing. Some surfaces replicate the images we see naturally and ricochet them back to us, at times adding an additional element not in the original scene, and sometimes leaving the reflected image more interesting than the original.
Total Awards in Cash and Photography Advertising Prize Value: $900.00.

Theme and Selection:

Using reflections in photography can result in unexpected effects portraying unexpected beauty in everyday scenery. Beauty can be found in an image reflected off a building window, or a mirror image of an object reflecting on the water. It can be a sole image seen in a puddle after a rainstorm, an image in a rearview mirror, or one bouncing off the surface of a newly-shined floor. Reflections can be clear, pristine images or slightly obscured ones. Whatever the case, they add an element of interest and sometimes mystery to a photo.

The judges will be looking for creativity, quality of execution, and uniqueness of vision. Show us your best representation and interpretation of “reflections”, expressed from realism to abstraction.

Eligibility: This competition is open to all photographers 18 years of age or older.

  • Submission Deadline: February 25, 2019 (12:00 Midnight EST)
  • Curator Selection: on or before February 28, 2019
  • Artist Notification: on or before February 28, 2019
