Seattle's Mayor, Edward B. Murray, has proclaimed this day, June 19th, DAY OF PHOTOGRAPHY! The Photographic Center Northwest (PCNW) is holding their annual photo competition, Long Shot, where photographers from all over the world can submit their best images shot today. For just 20 bucks, you can register and enter up to five submissions, where a panel of judges will rate your images. Each Long Shot participant will have one image selected from their submissions, which will be printed and hung in the gallery showing on Sunday.
Last month we had a contest and asked the Fstoppers Community to submit their best photos in five different categories. The winners of each category would win their choice of three Fstoppers Flash Discs or one free tutorial from the Fstoppers Store. We were very impressed with all of the talent from the community and were delighted to see such a wide spectrum of images in each category. We spent a great deal of time looking over each category, and after much deliberation, we have chosen one lucky winner from the five categories of Fashion, Landscape, Wedding, Glamour, and Portrait.
Only 3 Days Left! From now until June 1st we are running 5 photography contests and choosing 5 separate winners. Simply submit your best portrait, wedding, glamour, fashion, or landscape photograph to win your choice of any Fstoppers tutorial in the Fstoppers store or 3 Fstoppers FlashDiscs.

Fellow Fstoppers instructor Erik Valind and I, Monte Isom, have come up with a contest that offers the whole package to aspiring and working photographers. In my class I'll be teaching how to break into the advertising business and land those large budget jobs to make photography a career instead of just a hobby. Erik will be teaching a class about controlling light with speedlights, where you'll learn to maximize natural light as well as how to light on small to medium budget productions.
The 2015 Fstoppers Workshops is right around the corner, and 2 weeks ago we launched one final contest. Today 5 lucky winners will receive a free spot in a class of their choosing and one of those winners will receive an additional free class, a paid flight to the Bahamas, and a free hotel room for the 6 day event. If you entered this contest through one of our 5 social media platforms you definitely need to keep reading!
UPDATE: Two More Days! The second Fstoppers Workshops is only two months away, and just like last year we want to give someone the photography experience of a lifetime. On March 19th we are going to give away 5 free classes away to 5 lucky photographers. Our grand prize winner will recieve 2 workshops and we will also cover the cost of their flight and hotel.
We share over 1.8 billion photos per day, and thanks to the ever-growing technology in cameras paired with the expansive world of social media platforms it's become increasingly easy to add the title "photographer" to the resume. Apple has searched high and low for the world's absolute best photographers and their work that spans the planet. The "Shot on iPhone 6" World Gallery features photos from creatives spanning 70 cities in 24 countries, and brings the mobile photography community front and center proving again that the best camera is the one that's with you.
Whether you love or hate wedding photography, it's by far one of the most incredibly difficult forms of photography out there to capture. The fact that you have one shot at getting the couple's once-in-a-lifetime day captured is pressure enough to stay away from it. Junebug Weddings just announced the winners of their 2014 Best of the Best Wedding Photography Collection and the results are astonishing.
The 2014–2015 Nikon Photo Contest is quickly coming to a close, with only a few days left to enter.

Ten free photo entries are allowed, so why not submit a few of your favorite images and see what happens?
