Gold Award by Victoria MacDonald, 2018 Travel Category, Better Photography Photo of the Year Award. Winning photos are often quite simple, but they are beautifully executed and processed. You don't have to do lots of editing, but you do need to get the colour and exposure exactly right!

I realise I have a vested interest in encouraging readers to enter our annual photography competition, but 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, 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, 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 the most important. What’s important has already happened just before you entered the competition.

Entries into the 2019 Better Photography Photo of the Year Awards close on 15 August 2019, 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 now!
