    Hello everyone,

    Lately I've been finding a lot of photography contests online and have even won one of them. But I thought I would share because they're an easy way to win some money of equipment, so here is a short list of some sites that I've found:

    May the Best Photo Win - A new site that is based off of visitor votes, free to enter and has a $40 cash prize
    Pop Photo - Has a few different themed categories and different prizes
    Shutterbug - Sometimes has contests that usually have a lens as a prize
    DPMag - Has different categories and prizes
    Digital Photo Pro - Again has a few different contests and prizes

    I encourage you all to enter any of these because who knows, you may take home a cool prize!
    Cincinnati, OH based photographer who created the photography contest May the Best Photo Win.

    Just a tiny whiff of spam here- moegly designed at least one of these websites... But even to my jaundiced eye, all 5 listed here are legitimate and above-board, and at least 3 of the sites are well-known and respected.

    Contests can be fun!

    Be careful of the ones that say they're publishing a book of all the winners and lo and behold, you won, and would you like to buy a book with your photo in it? It's a gimmick making money off people's pride. Not saying one of those is like that because I don't know but I have see other ones that do.

    just need to be careful, contests can also just be for the organisers to make money, especially if you have to pay to enter.
