Cash, gifts from our partners and a maximum of visibility
Photo contests are one of the most effective tools to regularly improve your images, gain visibility and notoriety. For 2021, the RA team has concocted a new program for you: hand-picked juries and cash prizes.
Contests for all photographers, whatever their level
Photo contests are a booster for creativity
For new photographers who have recently become professionals, they are an excellent way to take a technical step in your images and understand what is expected from a professional photo. Whether it's a wedding or a portrait shoot (pregnancy, birth, family, etc.), the competitions will also allow you to stimulate your creativity by pushing your own limits. Receiving your first Challenger badges on your photos means being part of the top 10% of international wedding and/or portrait photographers. This will be the first big step to take!
Get more visibility with photo contests
For experienced photographers who have already obtained their first badges in photo contests, it is also a creative challenge to participate in contests to continue to progress and be part of the best. Photographers who receive an award for one of their images are part of the cream of the crop: the 2 to 3% of the best photos in the world in their field.
Each badge obtained in competition is the occasion of a lot of visibility: your entourage will certainly react to the photos posted on your networks and share them! Your new awards will also interest the local press who might write an article about your work. More and more photographers even end up being featured on the radio or TV news!
Photo contests, a priority to gain notoriety
Each new award received is another step towards victory. The most famous photographers compete for the highly prized Masterpiece badges. Media exposure is even more important for those who finish at the top of a competition round or in the final ranking at the end of the year: blog posts, press articles and job opportunities are multiplied tenfold when the communication is well done. Winning regularly in contests is an insurance to fill your order book in portrait sessions or wedding reports. It is also an opportunity to receive beautiful gifts and to participate in the award ceremony.
Rewards and gifts for the winners of the photo contests
Before talking about technical progress, visibility or notoriety, the photo contests allow you to win great gifts throughout the year.
