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.

Oh wow. There really could be no better contest. Tons of free guidance along with a paid vacation. Business AND leisure. I just hope whoever wins does justice to what they will receive. I know I will! :)

Loving this contest/workshop idea!

A once in a lifetime opportunity, pick me!

You guys had me at Mark Wallace. Adding the Bahamas blew my mind! Seriously your instructor line up is amazing and I would love to pick all of their brains!

This would be an amazing opportunity for me. I really want to come down for this workshop and go to Mike Kelley's classes because i am in the process of starting a real estate photography business, but I just simply cannot afford to go to the workshops and buy all the gear I need. This would mean the world to me.

My passion is photography and my life goal is to become a good professional photographer. Recently I tried to get in the school, where I wanted to study photography. But due to the high requirements and limited amount of available places, I didnt get in this time. I need to improve and develop myself before I try to get in for the second time. Winning this contest would be a life changing opportunity and it would be an honour to learn from the amazing photographers, who will be present at this workshop!

Wow this is almost to good to be true hahaha :) Would be a dream come true, to visit such a stunning place such as the Bahamas. It's sure sound like a amazing workshop, and when I'm so passionate about photography, why miss out :)

This trip i would be an amazing learning experience for anyone.

This contest is insane! Flight, hotel and workshops with some of the best photographers in the industry and at an amazing tropical resort? Uh... Please put my name in the drawing as many times as possible! Thanks Fstoppers.

You guys rock! Hope to win and grow even further as a photographer with you guys.

Really cool contest. You guy have a amazing lineup of photographers to learn from . Would be fantastic to be able to join in!

After 4 years of wedding photography, I'm ready to take my game to the next level!

I want to win this contest because I'm a super nice person and unlike Game of Thrones, good things should happen to good people! =) This would just be awesome, plain and simple. I also give a pretty mean foot rub... ok that's just weird.

This would be great additional to my Himalayan photo trip.

I'm struggling with a deep passion for photography and hardly being challenged in my current position. Working as a Portrait Photographer for a school photography company, I rarely encounter the type of clients and talent that can really put my skills to the test or make me learn something new. And my Birthday is coming up....

Well, I'm a dutch student who can not afford something amazing like this. It could easily be the coolest thing that has ever happened in my entire life! except holding my nephew for the first time of course...

wow amazing !

I've never been out of the States and as a young photographer traveling would be a great opportunity to broaden my horizons.

fingers crossed

As a new but loyal follower, I would LOVE to attend these workshops! Thank you for this priceless opportunity!

I would love to attend -- I've dabbled a long time as a hobbyist, but never undertook formal training.


I would rent a lot of gear for that trip

I would love to continue my education! You can never stop learning. So I already packed my bag just let me know when we leave. :) Good luck all!

What a generous contest.

I need this because I am soooooo losing my tan in all this nasty winter chill. ;)
