The new PhotographyContest.ws presents all pertinent photo contest information in one convenient, easy to navigate location.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 24, 2011
For some people, photography is simply a hobby. For many, however, it is a competition. The tendency to view photography not merely as a pastime but as a competition has only increased with the advent of the Internet and various digital photography contests, but many amateur photographers have a difficult time locating the different contests that are available. A site called PhotographyContest.ws is seeking to change that, and, with its new, user-friendly design and review features, PhotographyContest.ws is more invaluable than ever for those seeking to earn money or prestige from their photography skills.
The site, launched by company founder and developer Jason Kay, has long stood as the web’s premier resource for those looking to join sponsored photography contests. The newly-designed PhotographyContest.ws presents a more user-friendly interface, however, and a directory of photo contests from all over the web, which is now easier to search and navigate. According to Kay, the redesign was conducted with amateur photographers in mind. “The trickiest part about photo contests is finding them and figuring out how to submit an entry,” notes Kay. “The new PhotographyContest.ws presents all of that information in one convenient, easy to navigate location.”
One of the most substantive new features is a review function, which allows users to submit their own comments regarding each of the contests in the directory. “The review feature will allow photographers to hear, directly from other photographers, how good the contest is, and ultimately discern whether it’s one they want to submit to or not,” notes Kay.
The bulk of PhotographyContest.ws, however, is devoted to the directory feature itself, which Kay says provides just the kind of information that an aspiring photographer would want to know about. Contests are listed in terms of the sponsor—ranging from different magazines to various corporations and manufacturers—and each entry includes publication information, submission details, and, where applicable, the amount of prize money offered.
Kay says the site is a one-stop shop for anyone seeking to submit to a photography contest. “At this site, a photographer can search for a contest that looks appealing, and then locate all the pertinent submission details. All the necessary information is gathered right here.”
