PostSubject: Popular Photography Readers' Photo Contest   Sun Jun 20, 2010 11:39 am

Now in its 17th year, the Readers' Photo Contest is Popular Photography's signature annual event. Thousands of photographers from around the globe--enthusiasts and professionals alike--compete in a range of genres from action to landscape to portraiture. One Grand Prize will be awarded for the best picture overall. Judged by the Editors of Popular Photography, along with a panel of distinguished photo editors, practitioners, critics, and teachers, the Readers' Photo Contest offers winners the opportunity to have their work seen by a huge audience of fellow photographers.

Contest Categories

The 17th Annual Popular Photography Photo Contest gives photographers the opportunity to win prizes and have their work recognized in the January 2011 issue of Popular Photography, the largest photo magazine in the world, as well as on our website, PopPhoto.com.


Capture bodies in motion. Your subject doesn’t have to be human, or even living, as long as you convey the idea of movement.

Wildlife, pets, birds, insects, fish… Whether it trots, pounces, creeps, swims or flies, every creature counts.

Depict a built environment: an interior or exterior, an entire building or a small detail, a palace or a yurt.

Snap a spontaneous moment. Or uncover irony in everyday scenes. Or create a visual joke. Any way you do it, make us think or make us laugh—or make us do both at the same time.

Whether a grand vista or a single tree, a mighty mountain or a patch of flowers, the great outdoors is the ultimate picture show. Give us a feature presentation.

The human condition. Describe it in a picture—whether you make a portrait or a scenario, depict one person or a crowd, shoot in a studio or in a theater, stage a narrative or capture a spontaneous moment.
Still Life

Breathe life into inanimate objects through composition, light, texture, color or tone, mood and feeling. Your image can be realistic or abstract, set up or found.

There’s always some place we’d rather be. For some of us, it’s a Parisian bistro. For others, a tent in a jungle clearing. Either way, the best travel photos make us want to pick up and go—now.
