I love entering awards, it provides a challenge each year to really push your own skill set and creative vision, plus the fact I can get out to some amazing locations just to soak it all in! Although there are many competitions out there, the one closest to my heart and one I strive for excellence in, is the AIPP State & National Awards. I do enter other competitions, mainly the ones where the photographer retains copyright of their images! Also that they generally include judges that are leaders in their photographic fields, to at least give some credibility to the competition as some appear to be questionable and no more than cash grabs for the organisers! I also really value the judges feedback and opinions where it is given. I tend to enter the same image across different competitions, as the judging process is subjective the same image does not always yield the same result. But when an image receives multiple awards you can be confident you have captured a special image. This is ultimately why I enter competitions, to keep challenging myself and know that I am producing a standard that is first class.
