Spring is my favorite time of year because Nature’s colors are a rare delicate and pastel hue. In short it is a season to imbibe and enjoy as a new cycle of vernal sounds, fragrances and colors cover the landscape. And if ye Editor is not mistaken, there is an invigoration in step and mood throughout the countryside. In short, Spring is prime picture taking time. And this year there are more opportunities to share those pictures by way of photo contests.
Canadian Photo Contests
A camera club buddy is very fond of the Canadian Geographic Societies free Photo Club – and ye Editor can see why. They have weekly contests called Shoot This as well as special annual prize-winning contests. Here is a sample of the weekly contest winning photos for the last two weeks:
Shoot This – Bicycles
For Shades of Blue – Bubbles
Here are some additional photocontests that may be of interest including two sponsored by PixofCanada. As well Lenzr.com has a number of ongoing photo contests that have prizes associated with them. The categories are off beat and often quite specific. But the prizes are nifty and the photo contests are easy to enter, photo copyrights are protected by the Creative Commons License, and you can enter multiple times if you want. Finally we have found some additional contests occurring this Spring which may catch your fancy.
What is neat about a Lenzr Photo Contest is that not only are there gobs of photo competitions but also the many categories actually stimulate some crazy creative image ideas. So they are fun and there are some great prizes to be had. The other photo contests are more location specific, you must attend the event or have visited the site.
As a photo buff, Ye PixofCanada editor certainly enjoys the prospect of getting some Spring time pictures for photo contests. In summer and Fall there will be more photo contest so readers will be kept posted. In the meantime try some of these contests or let us know of your own favorites in the comments below.
