Dear Right Moves,
Am I crazy or do the same photographers win these PDN contests year in and year out?Just Sayin', Bronxville, New York
Dear Just Sayin’The number one reason there are some photographers who make repeat appearances in the winner’s circle of major competitions is that they PARTICIPATE. Each year, they take the time to enter their images into the important competitions where they’ll receive the most visibility. Their work is generally beautiful, but, most importantly, they ENTER.
I am a great advocate of entering the vetted contests conducted by important accredited companies and publishers like PDN. You’ll become one of those winners if and when you enter these same contests with competitive images. It’s a pain to enter, but take the time and effort to do it.
