Gold Award by Kath Salier, 2016 Creative Category, Better Photography Photo of the Year Award

I realise as the magazine’s editor I have a vested interest in encouraging readers to enter our annual photography competition, but I believe I practice what I preach.

My life, my career and my success as a photographer is directly attributable to photography competitions. Yes, I’ve been lucky to win a few competitions, but I’ve entered far more where my results have been less than stellar!

The reason for my success as a photographer isn’t because I’ve won competitions, but because I have spent the time entering them. Now, don’t get me wrong! I try to win every competition I enter, but win, lose or draw, I’m a winner because I’ve spent time making my entries better.

Simple, isn’t it.

The mere process of putting your best foot forward, of refining your skills as a photographer to enter an image into a competition is how you improve. While the results are important, they’re not. What’s important has already happened just before you enter the competition.

Entries into the 2018 Better Photography Photo of the Year Awards close on 31 October 2018, so there's still time to enter - and who knows, you could be part of the $17,000 prize pool too! For more details, visit www.betterphotographyphotocomp.com now!
