CONTESTS/GRANTS/FESTIVALS


Contests are a little random, it depends on what that year's judges likes. Thus surprises happen all the time. Don't be intimidated, enter and only tell people when you get in! Raise your profile.

If you make finalist of any, please send us an email, as we will start a new section giving further publicity to people who use our service to achieve. We are all about making Victoria one of the Photo Capitals of the world.
