Santa Fe Photographic Workshops

»LIGHT Early Registration—SAVE $10!

The early-submission deadline (save $10!) for our second ever (and now semi-annual) photography contest is this Saturday, February 19, 2011.

And here’s the insider scoop—you don’t have to upload your images by February 19 (you have until March 31), you just have to register. And save $10!

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.

The “light” turns off March 31, 2011. Good luck everyone!
