On Photo Contest Controversy & Criticism – PhotoShelter Blog

When money and prestige is on the line, some photographers will find a way to cheat, steal and lie to win. Photo contests have unfortunately been plagued with scandals ranging from image manipulations to questions about authenticity and ethics in dealing with a subject.

Consider the Photo Contest Jury – PhotoShelter Blog

We recently launched the PhotoShelter Guide to Photo Contests 2019 – our annual look at contests around the world that we think are worth your consideration.

It’s time to admit that photo contests are not all created equal. In previous years, we rounded up roughly 40 of the top photo contests to provide deadlines, prize information, and more. This year we departed a bit from that approach and narrowed down our list to the 28 photo contests we think are worth considering.

Tabitha Barnard – Cult of Womanhood « burn magazine

Growing up in a small town in rural Maine, my contact with others was limited. I was raised alongside three sisters and lived in a close-knit religious culture where sexuality was never mentioned.
