Summer Photo Contests
This summer there are dozens of photo contests throughout Canada and the World. Our selections emphasize contests that are free for entry, have judging and not online votes as as the final arbitrer, and have some prizes for the winners. In addition, all of the contests post the winning photos [ and most post the top ten photos entered].
But most notable this year are contests specifically for kids. The Long Lunch Photo Contest has one prize devoted to youth between the ages of 10 nd 20 inclusive. And National Geographic has a contest which is for kids between the ages of 6 and 14 inclusive. So kids as photographers are being encouraged. finally, most of the contests allow for image editing using popular photo editing tools.
