A List Apart
"I'm never disappointed by Photojojo." -- Dave Johnson
Well, to be fair, we can’t really promise you any minions. Minions are hard to come by these days.
But still, fame and glory! And in some cases, cash money!
Contests build character. They make you take a long hard look at your photos and admit that some of them are really, really good.
What have you got to lose?
p.s. Turkey Day Special — 1st time ever sale on Eye-Fi (gives any camera Wi-Fi).
(We’re young and foolish and this price is crazy. Take advantage.)
Before You Begin…
We wish we didn’t have to say this, but be sure to read the fine print about copyrights before entering any contest.
Some contests assume that entering your photo means transferring your copyright to the sponsoring company, and that’s just messed up. Granting a license may be okay as long as you get proper credit and don’t mind not getting paid for your work, but never ever give up your copyright.
We checked these contests out before recommending them, but always read the terms for yourself, OK?
Oh yeah, and be sure that you’re eligible to win before entering. You don’t want to spend time submitting photos only to find that the contest is limited to female lumberjacks over 65 residing in Canton, Ohio.
