MyPhotoSchool's photo competition opens

The MyPhotoSchool monthly photo competition is free to enter and is an exciting opportunity for members to showcase their work to a global audience.

New Online Photography School, MyPhotoSchool, offers members a free monthly photo competition with the opportunity to win prizes and showcase work to a global audience

MyPhotoSchool, a new online photography school – where every course is taught by a world leading photographer – today launches the first of its monthly photo competitions for members. Every month, the MyPhotoSchool photo competition will feature 8 categories: Landscape & Nature; People; Abstract; Digital Manipulation; Travel & Architecture; Garden & Flower; Macro; and the Monthly Theme. In recognition of Valentine’s Day, the annual celebration of love and affection, the first monthly theme is Love.

“Love has been inspiring artists for centuries, and as they have striven to capture its essence they have created some of the most stunning works of art the world has ever seen,” said Duncan Heather, Associate Director, MyPhotoSchool. “So it seemed a fitting theme with which to launch the MyPhotoSchool monthly photo competition. Together with the other seven categories, we are confident there will be something for everyone.”

The MyPhotoSchool monthly photo competition is free to enter and is an exciting opportunity for members to showcase their work to a global audience. Winning entries will not only be exhibited on the MyPhotoSchool homepage for a month – before being archived in the MyPhotoSchool online gallery – but also will be actively promoted by MyPhotoSchool via a monthly press release, which we will distribute to over 70 global news sites. Winners in each of the categories will also receive a £25 coupon code to spend against any MyPhotoSchool online photography course, and will automatically be entered into the People’s Choice Award for the best photo of the year. The winner of that annual competition will win a DSLR camera.
