A few days back the winners of the 56th World Press Photo Contest were announced.  See them all on The Darkroom.

World Press Photo is one of the most prestigious photo contests and it is heavily contested by many of the best photographers around the world.  A novice’s chances of winning it aren’t exactly bright.  Not to be despondent though: today we’re ‘shining a spotlight’ on competitions and contests.

We list several below with a new twist: the heading identifies what you can walk away with should you win that contest!

Before entering any contest/competition, please carefully read its rules and conditions of entry to avoid disappointment.

Pro Camera equipment worth R185,000

That’s an EOS 5D Mark III, 24-105L lens kit with selected accessories, an EF 70-300mm f4-5.6 L IS USM lens, and a Pixma Pro 9500 Mark II pigment inkjet printer for the winner plus fabulous prizes for two runners-up!  The prizes are from Canon and the competition is hosted by Sunday Times.  This competition is “for South Africa’s best wildlife and nature photographers” and, though the subject can be “anything environmental,” “judges will be on a special lookout for authentic work of less common wildlife and fascinating landscapes.”  It is open until 10th December.

Extreme outdoor photography clothing and a two-man hide

The prize of a hide (besides jacket, trousers and gloves) suggests wildlife photography; however, the topic of this competition is broader: the ‘Great Outdoors’.  Though you can submit a photograph of a Siberian Tiger on the hunt, photos of “a day out at the seaside” are just as acceptable.  The prize is courtesy of Stealth Gear and their ‘Great Outdoors’ Competition is open until 28th February.

Sony NEX-5R compact system camera 

Not a bad prize on offer from Chromasia and Goodman Business Parks for their architectural photography competition.  Now do you think you’d have an advantage if you entered a photo of a building managed by Goodman?(!)  You can submit your photograph of an architectural marvel until 25th February.

Nothing . . . well, ‘Publicity'(!)

If “email marketing, 70+ press release announcements, 75+ event announcement posts, extensive social media marketing and distribution” plus backlinks to your website appeal to you, enter Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery art competition.  Photographers can compete with illustrators to depict “‘Nature’ [which] is considered to be anything that was not created by or has been substantially altered by man.”  Closing date: 24th February.
