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.

Everybody wants come in Tuscany (my place)... but I want go to Bahamas!

After shooting part time I quit my job in Oct 2013 to go full time, I shoot mainly swimsuit so I would really like to attend Dixie Dixon class to learn even more. And with leaving my job money is tight so it would be a great learning experience to take my photography to the next level

Would love to win this contest. I have had dreams of photographing the Bahamas.

I hope to start my photography business (soon), get into videography and incorporate it into the business, and shoot my first wedding as lead photographer this year! After 32 years, I feel like I've finally found the type of work I want to do (portraits, weddings, real estate)! I've been doing photography for about 1 1/2 years, have learned a lot and have a lot more to learn!

The only thing better than a weekend workshop with such amazingly talented instructors, is to do it in such a photogenic part of the world!

-what does the fox say?
- pick me!! :))

- pick Nelson!

2013 was a phenomenal year for me (probably the best yet for my photo business)...and I am going to make sure that 2014 is even better with or without this workshop.

I defineatly need to take it up a notch with my knolwedge base, so much to learn, so little time. But this is a start!

You will be giving a young man to pursue his passion and follow his dreams.

I just graduated from college with two degrees. I thought I would be more excited to join the workforce after putting in years of effort. Honestly, my passion has always been photography and traveling. It feels like a distant dream and this trip would really jump start me into taking the first steps I need to build a career doing what I love. Given the choice to be a professional photographer for a living beats any other opportunity for me. This trip could give me the skills, confidence, and outlook I need to live my personal dream.

I (and my photography) could use this. Looking forward to winning!!!

Pick me and I will document every minute of this trip. All the way from cold Sweden to Bahamas and back :)

It Would be a dream for me!! Pick Me !! Wanna Make Great Images For You Guys !! :-D

I'm interested in combining landscapes and fashion/portraits. Many of these courses would be great to achieve this. I'm also interested in the model shoots at the beach as these can often be composted as well. Headshot class would be icing on the cake.

it's a great opportunity for knowledge in a wonderful place!

I would absolutely love to join this workshop. I'm gearing up to shoot my first wedding this year and could definitely benefit from all the knowledge from the Fstoppers team!!

This can be the perfect opportunity to study photography outside my country, Italy, where photography is for everyone, but good photography is a rare thing

Definitely looking to get my photography back in focus (pun!)-- 2013 was a difficult year for me both personally and professionally-- a trip like this would be a great opportunity to begin the process of reinventing myself and my photography work in 2014.

Hmmm I guess I could free up my Calendar if I won this

Me and my wonderful family deserve a vacation after a year of hard work at our jobs. It would be so great if we won. Thanks for the chance (:

Wow, what a crazy cool opportunity! I'd love to win- I always love hearing from other photographers and how they've perfected their craft. Plus, Atlantis.

This would be a ridiculous opportunity. The classes, the networking and the location. I would love to go learn and get motivated to take my photography to the next level.

it would be a great break from routine and an opportunity to meet and learn from great professionals.

I would LOVE to go to this.
