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

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.

Would love to go to this workshop and desperately need a vacation but who doesn't. This workshop could make me get my business back in focus.

A once in a lifetime chance to pick the brains of the heavy hitters in the industry they could be holding this workshop in Corpus Christi, Texas and would still be worth the trip, but the Bahamas is good to! Good luck everyone!

This would be a great opportunity as I'm looking to take my photography skills and business to the next level. Being in such a community would really give a lot of helpful insight especially as i come from the caribbean (Barbados)

I would love to have the opportunity to know all of these photographers, reading about them is one thing but having the amazing opportunity to meet them is a life changer, I'm sure that everyone attending will enrich from this life experience!

I've probably learnt more reading Fstoppers than any other photography/filmmaking resource out there. As a student and sole operator in a photography/filmmaking startup, I couldn't think of a better or more exciting opportunity than this. Going to the Bahamas to learn and hang out with like-minded people would be the dream!

Its 8:45 pm on a Tuesday in New York, and I'm here at my so called 9-5 (seldom is 9-5 and more like 9 - 9 ). I sit here in my office everyday, looking at every one around with their dull faces knowing that from day to day their routine won't change and they will always be sitting behind the desk; plugging numbers, reading contracts, and approving entries. I do not want to be another robot in this world.

The second my camera is in my hand and my subject in focus, I forget everything, all my worries, stress, problems seem to evaporate into this air. I step into a whole other realm where I feel my creativity just goes crazy with ideas and visions that I want to create. Photography, makes me happy. I preach to everyone that they should do in life what makes them happy, yet I don't practice what I preach because of fear. I would love to take my photography to the next level, what ever that may be and I feel that by being lucky enough to attend a seminar like this will give me the boost, confidence, knowledge and savvy to take this step into a joyful state of mind. I want to travel, explore, let my soul free - rather be here still in the office just getting ready to leave to continue this for another day....just waiting on the next time I will have another subject in front of my camera.

Thank You for reading - I love Fstoppers :)

A great opportunity to do what i really love, photography. Learn new thing, share eith others who love photography as much as i do. Network, relax, have fun, and meet new people all in a beautiful setting. Hope you pick me, i could really use the break. Thank you.

Oh the oppurtunities! I would love to win this trip, mainly to explore some different types of photography in a different part of the world. But also to meet like-minded people who I can have a discussion with and learn from. This would be fantastic! :)

I'm a student in grad school. I'll be paying off loans forever. Let me frolic in the sand for five days for the love of God!

I've been straddling the gap between amateur hobbyist to serious freelancer, and I think this would be an incredibly helpful tipping point!

Wining this contest would be an amazing learning experience I'm a 23 old photographer been following your guys work for a while it's such an inspiration what you guys give to us inspiring photographers , win or lose this contest I'm always grateful for what you guys give back to us viewers thank you fstoppers

I've been taking photos since I was a teenager. Throughout the years I have seen my photography skills develop and improve but I feel I am still far from being an exceptional photographer. I started out with film and reluctantly moved into digital but eventually fell in love with digital as well. Digital has allowed me to literally take thousands upon thousands of photos. However sometimes, I just feel like I don't want to be behind the lens; sometimes I just want to enjoy that moment and soak it all in. That to me is what makes me think like a photographer. To be a great photographer is what I strive to be and like soaking in that moment, I'd like to soak in everything I can about photography and continue to learn from fellow photographers.

Would be great to win this contest, as I'd love to have the opportunity to learn from some incredibly talented and successful photographers! In this business, you can literally learn something new every day, and I'm sure I could learn a whole lot if my name was chosen. Thanks for the opportunity, guys!!!

I'm broke as a joke but I will see you guys there!!

I want to go so I can compare beard grooming techniques with Lee.

I want to win this contest because for me it is a once in a lifetime opportunity to capture images with Fstoppers and other renown photographers I would never have a chance to be in the same room with, let alone in such an exotic location. I can't even imagine the things I would learn at such a workshop.

I want to learn from Peter Hurley! That would be awesome.

I'd love to win this trip as I just purchased a new dslr and want to take my images to the next level!

I want to win this contest because it would be an amazing experience and I need all the help I can get.

Wow! I would love to take part in this workshop for more than one reason. I have been doing film and photography for years and am always looking to improve my skills, and I think an oportunity like this would take me to the next level.

Pick me! I've never travelled as far as the Bahamas before, and would love to hear some experts share their knowledge. Also I live in England so would love to see the sunshine, please?

Would love to visit the Bahamas, never been there yet.

As a UK resident I am spoiled by the soft diffuse light the weather provides for 90% of the year and would relish the chance to tackle the problems of direct sunlight..for once.

I have to win this contest, please FStoppers help me change my life by coming to this amazing workshop!

C'mon! How could I NOT throw my hat into the ring to show Hurley I've perfected the "squint".

That trip would be the most amazing gift! It's going to be a very hectic year with classes and projects and I'd love to live that experience! Thank you!
