2022 Competition Pointer: Can You Impress The Judges?
The trick to winning a photography competition is to impress the judges. How you do that is a little more complicated, but start by imagining you are one of the judges.
Think about what they do. They are presented with hundreds or maybe thousands of photographs. Each image is precious and important to its photographer, but unlike the photographer, as the judge they don't have the same emotional attachment.
Many people enter photographs of their children or loved ones, thinking they are the best images in the world. And they are. They are the best images for that person because there is a three way association between the subject, the photographer and the photograph.
However, for a judge who doesn't know either the subject or the photographer, that association is lost. All the judge can deal with is the image, not the personal associations.
Successful photographs will create an association with the viewer - and the judge. That association is created by choosing interesting or appealing subject matter, by capturing that subject matter with beautiful lighting or in an exotic location, by choosing an unusual camera angle, etc.
Successful photographs are usually different from what we are used to seeing. What do you have that is a little different to the norm?
Entries into the 2022Better Photography Photo of the Year Awards close on 15July 2022, so there's still time to enter - and who knows, you could be part of the $5000 prize pool too! And every entry gets a judge's comment to assist them improve. For more details or to enter, visit www.betterphotographyphotocomp.com now!
