Photo Competitions Network


“Photography Competitions Network (PCN) works closely with hundreds of competition organizers from around the world to bring you the very latest, and the very best, open photo contests.

Our mission is to solve the long standing problem of finding competitions that are open to entry.

While you can find plenty of photo competitions on the search engines, you’ll find the vast majority are already closed, and some have even been closed for many years. Although the search engines are good at listing competitions, most are irrelevant! as you are unable to enter them.

This is where we come in. Our team of researchers check daily for the very latest photo contests that are open to entry, so you don’t have to. In addition to that, we’ve also organized the competitions for you so you can find what you are interested in easily, and for each contest we build a page that provides you with all the relevant information you need to decide if you wish to enter the competition. Unfortunately, we’re unable to take the winning picture for you, that is something you’ll have to do I’m afraid.

We are also very much aware of photographer rights and we do not list photo contests that require the entrant to transfer ownership of the copyright to the organizer or sponsors. We provide transparency to help protect photographers and educate organizers to use fair terms and conditions for their photo contests.

Every contest listed on PCN has details relating to the competitions terms and conditions for the benefit of the photographer. The photographer should not solely rely on this information and should obtain full details of the terms and conditions and to seek legal advice if required before entering any contest.

Our long term goal is to only list open photo contests with fair terms and conditions for photographers, and we believe the transparency we provide is a step in this direction.”

I began taking photos from strange angles and with weird exposure settings. I was experimenting and learning, and upsetting my frugal parents with “all that wasted film”. I knew I was onto something.

I continued to pursue this new “vision” and took many different art classes. In high school, I was fortunate enough to take an early college figure drawing class at the Art Institute of Chicago. This changed everything and is what led to my scholarship and attendance at the Columbus College of Art and Design, in Columbus, Ohio. There I earned my bachelors degree in fine arts with a major in advertising design and many classes in photography…”
