The summer has ended and the distractions of beaches and barbeques are slipping away. It’s the perfect time to pause and think about what images you’re going to enter in the photo contest. But don’t pause too long. The deadline is September 15th!

This is a contest that has it all. Truly stellar prizes like:

  • a workshop of your choice in Santa Fe (all expenses paid!)
  • a Calumet Travelite 750R Radio Enabled Monolight Umbrella Kit
  • a range of Nik Software
  • a Blurb gift certificate for $500
  • a VisualServer web site account for one year
  • a Nikon camera
  • a Think Tank Photo Airport International V2.0 Roller Camera Bag
  • Santa Fe Photographic Workshops gift certificates

Top-flight jurors:

  • the Deputy Photo Editor of People Magazine
  • a nationally known fine art photographer
  • the Director of George Eastman House
  • the director of the Workshops
And a topic that’s wide open and relevant to all of us, no matter what type of photographer we are.

We wish you all good luck! »
