I realise as the magazine’s editor I have a vested interest in encouraging readers to enter our annual photography competition, but I believe I practise what I preach.

My life, my career and my success as a photographer is directly attributable to photography competitions. Yes, I’ve been lucky to win a few awards, but I’ve entered many more where my results have been less than satisfactory.

The reason for my success as a photographer isn’t because I’ve won competitions, but because I have spent the time entering them. Now, don’t get me wrong! I try to win every competition I enter, but win, lose or draw, I’m a better photographer because I’ve spent time making my entries better.

Simple, isn’t it.

The mere process of putting your best foot forward, of refining your skills as a photographer to enter an image into a competition is how you improve. While the results are important, then again they’re not. What’s important has already happened, just before you enter the competition.

Your entries are anonymous in that the judges don't know who you are and if you don't win an award, no one else will see your entries either. On the other hand, if one or more of your entries does rather well, it's a great feeling of accomplishment – so what have you got to lose?

Entries into the 2023 Better Photography Photographer of the Year Awards are now open. There is a $5000 cash prize pool, entries can win Gold, Silver or Bronze awards and every entry receives a judge's comment to assist them improve. Early entries close 8 October and final entries on 15 October 2023. For more details and to enter, visit www.betterphotographyphotocomp.com now!
