Finding the ways to fill the time
Australian newspaper, The Sydney Morning Herald holds an annual photo challenge competition: Photos1440 Challenge. 2013’s session is already underway, but entrants still have a few weeks remaining before the due date of June 16. See FAQs and Terms and Conditions for more information.
The competition is only open to Australian residents, and the registration fee for general participants is AUD $20, with slightly cheaper prices for tertiary students and juniors.
Some of the photos from previous years are stunners, so expect stiff competition. Check out the slide-show for some ideas of the quality to expect, and inspiration for your own selection.
With great prizes to be won, a very reasonable entry fee, and at the very least the benefit of having your work previewed by professionals in the field, this is a challenge that should definitely be accepted.
