The deadline of midnight PST, March 31 on our second ever (and now semi-annual) photography contest is fast approaching. Don’t miss the opportunity to pause and review your photography, then join our international community of photographers and share your photographs with our distinguished judges.

The theme of the contest is LIGHT. Natural, studio, low key, high key, long exposures or explorations in light graffiti—the story it tells is up to you.

Our educational partners and sponsors have contributed to an impressive prize list with a total value of over $12,000. And, yes, you could win a workshop in Santa Fe.

Remember: the “LIGHT” turns off March 31, 2011. Good luck everyone!
