Editor & Publisher Magazine: Photo Contest


Editor & Publisher Magazine, in association with Photo District News and IPNStock.com, is now accepting entries for the 10th Annual News Photos of the Year Contest.

The grand prize winner gets $1,000, and other prizes include one-year subscriptions to PhotoServe.com, an $800 value. Winning entries appear in E&P's November issue and/or a special online gallery.

The deadline for entries is Sept. 14, 2009.

Lat year's Grand Prize winner was Shiho Fukada, a personal favorite photographer of mine, for her coverage of the Juyuan Middle School that collapsed during the earthquake in Sichuan province.

As in all and every photography contests, I strongly encourage all interested photographers to make sure they carefully read the contests' terms and conditions, especially since misunderstandings between organizers and contestants over terms, prizes and other issues sometimes occur.
