Only Hours Left To Enter Fstoppers Biggest Photography Contest Ever

The first ever Fstoppers Workshop in the Bahamas is happening May 28th - June 1st at Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas and we want to give one of our readers the trip of a lifetime for FREE! We are actually doing 2 separate contests and they both end today, Friday May 28th at midnight eastern time.  If you are looking to expand your own photo skills, connect with other photographers in your field, explore a different genre of photography, or simply take a vacation you can write off, this is going to be the event to attend. How do you win this trip for free? Details are below:

Contest 1: All expense paid trip to the 2014 Fstoppers Workshop in Nassau, Bahamas.

This contest is open to everyone world-wide. On February 1st, 2014, one lucky Fstoppers fan will win a flight voucher worth up to $500 to travel to the workshop in the Bahamas. They will also win accommodations for 5 nights at the Atlantis Resort and access to any of the courses offered throughout the event. A passport is required to enter the Bahamas so make sure your documents are current and up to date.

How to enter (each option below will count as a separate entry): All you have to do is leave a comment on this post below explaining why you want to win this contest. Vulgar or trolling entries will be disqualified/deleted so keep it nice

Twitter: Simply follow @fstoppers and retweet the following message between now and Jan 31st: "Follow @Fstoppers and retweet this message to win a free trip to the Bahamas for the Fstoppers Photo Workshop"

Youtube: Subscribe to our Youtube Channel at and leave a comment on this contest video here.

Facebook: Like our Fstoppers Page and leave a comment on this contest post to qualify. BONUS: Share the Facebook contest post on your own wall and earn a second entry.

On February 1st we will randomly choose 1 name from each of the areas mentioned above and randomly draw one as the grand prize winner.

Contest 2: Full Refund on All Paid Classes

This second contest is open only to those who have signed up and paid for a class at the 2014 Fstoppers Workshop. To inspire you guys to sign up early, rather than waiting until the last minute, on February 1st we will pick one lucky attendee and reimburse their entire photography workshop class package. The full refund amount will depend on the number of classes bought prior to the announcement of the winner. Since this year's workshop is limited to about 200 students, your chances of being chosen are much greater than the above contest open to the general public.

Additional Rules and Terms:
All entries must be submitted before 11:59 PM eastern time on January 31st for consideration. Prizes are contingent on winner attending the workshop and are worth no actual monetary value. Winning trip and classes cannot be transferred or given to anyone other than the winner. Passport is required.

I want to win this contest because I believe that attending this workshop will more than quadruble my photographic abilities. These are some of the best teachers in the industry without a doubt, and anyone can learn from this!

Would love to build more knowledge and to learn! Cheers!

Now that I can finally understand most of the terms used when watching online photography tutorials, it's time to learn the secrets of success in person. Video education is awesome but there's nothing like the real thing. This workshop just might propel me from obsessed hobbyist to extremely obsessed professional.

Im a keen amateur photographer from a tiny town in Ireland where not much camera gives me a feeling of escapism and wonder to the fulfills me and gives me a sense of purpose

Brooke Mathews's picture

You guys are SO cool! I have a wedding may 18th and June 7th. When I heard the dates I FREAKED out. This would be amazing, I've looked up to you guys for so long. And Feburary 1st is 5 days before my birthday.

Matthew Collins's picture

After working hard over the past two years trying to gain experience in photography, emailing hundreds of photographers all around the country, teaching my self what I know about photography and being unsuccessful all the while I believe one opportunity to learn from the best is all I need to prove to myself, and the family that doubts me I can do anything I put my mind to.

Amber VanLoh's picture

Love this contest! I'd love to win, I have so much to learn and the Bahamas would be an amazing place to test out some of those new skills! Good luck everyone!

John Ciciora's picture

I've been working my butt off trying to build a successful photography business. It hasn't been easy, but 2014 looks promising. To have the opportunity to learn from some of the best would be incredible.

Holly Frazier's picture

I would love to win this! I've been looking at the budget ever since I saw the post for this workshop to see if it's feasible this year. This would definitely make it easier to go. I am really wanting to come do the wedding workshop!!

David Freeman's picture

what a great opportunity for any photographer, to gain this experience from seasoned pros in the industry. this could take my photography to the next level and maybe make it possible for me to go to full time photographer.

Great contest! I am curious if people from outside the US have also a chance to win. It seems that there is only one way to find out..... ;-)

Kevin A's picture

David Meehan's picture

I have been doing photography for just over 4 months and I shot my first wedding last week! I am very proud of where my ability has come to within such a short time. I will never be satisfied as I feel this is the only way to keep getting better. This workshop would be the perfect way for me to fuel my photography and it will certainly open new doors for me.
