»Now Open: Our OUTSIDE Photo Contest
© Marc Muench
Our photo contests have gained such positive momentum we now offer them on a semi-annual basis. So it is with enthusiasm that we announce that our second contest for 2012 is open for entries. The theme is OUTSIDE. Sweeping landscapes, cityscapes, the geography of textures, forms and shapes—how OUTSIDE is defined is largely up to you.
We’re offering an Early Entry discount fee, $30 for 3 images. And here’s the inside scoop on the OUTSIDE contest: register by October 12 to get the Early Entry discount, and you’ll still have until November 13 to upload your images.
Fees: $30 for 3 images submitted by October 12, 2012; $40 for 3 images submitted October 13-November 13, 2012; $10 for each additional image over 3
Call for Entries Open: September 19, 2012
Early Entry Deadline: October 12, 2012
Final Submission Deadline: November 13, 2012
50 Winning Photographs Announced: December 10, 2012
Our educational partners and sponsors have contributed to an impressive prize list with a total value of over $12,000. And the 50 winning images will be featured in The Workshops online gallery.
So, what do YOU see when you go OUTSIDE?

90 miles. It’s the distance between mainland America and the island nation of Cuba, but for over half a century more than just water has divided the two countries.
Our licensed cultural exchanges bridge the many degrees of separation that have distanced these two nations and their people.
