Digital photography contests are a norm for many photography forums and magazines. Some of them will announce a new photography contest every month and some announce every season.
There are many ways for you to win this type of contest and today, I will outline few tips that you can use to find digital photography contest so that you can use them to participate and be one of the few first people entered the contest (and increase the first impression of the judges of you!)
One of the best ways to find contests is by going to Google and use certain modifiers. One of the modifier is this: “allintitle:digital photography contest” (do not put the double quote)
What are you doing with this modifier is you are asking Google to deliver search results consisting of pages that has that title in their web page. In other word, you are looking for a website that talks about specific contest inside the page (you might find this article by using the same modifier too).
Secondly, you can find photography contests by using this modifier in Google: “digital photography contest”. Include together the double quote given because when you do this, you are asking Google to deliver search results that have website talking about this contest you want to participate. But the downside of this is, it might be too old for you to join in (most of the search results will be old, sometimes the entry is from 2006).
However, if you use Google Alerts, you can make sure you get most updated results from Google. Just search for Google Alerts, and then put in 2 modifiers I mentioned above and depending on your setting, you will receive updated list of websites that mentioned the term you are looking for.
