This was submitted to me via the APUG helpdesk so just passing it on. Thanks


I would like to share a call to artists with you. The 6th Annual Curious Camera Competition is a friendly photo competition that awards prizes, trophies and includes a gallery exhibition for artists using pinhole, plastic lens, vintage or instant cameras.

Attached is a link to the website. Please visit to learn more!

as someone who has spent every lunchtime this week refining and testing his latest pinhole camera, all I can say is Woo!

(I just can't find the T&C page to see if entry is open to the whole world or just one country...)

I didn't realize it was only $10 per image with no minimum. I'll be entering. Thanks.

10$ per image - I think this is pretty high. So if you want to submit 5 images - 50$.

Only $10 entry fee. You can get a trophy if you win.

It's just not out of character with other juried photo competitions. The nice thing about this one is that there's no minimum. I can submit one image for $10. Its sister competition, Krappy Kamera, is a flat $40 for up to five images.

A trophy, yes. And other assorted goodies, not to mention at least four rolls of Ilford film for each of the top three placings. Not too shabby -- but no one's really entering these competitions for the prizes (certainly not the trophy).

So it looks like photo competitions are a nice job to run. Better to organize one than to apply to :).

Who's getting rich on photo competitions? They're a good fundraising source to keep small galleries like these in business. (This is America, remember. The government isn't so generous to the arts over here...)

Commercial art galleries are not subsisdized in Europe either.
