“This year we’ve included a gender and POC (person-of-color) breakdown of the juries; we believe that experience shapes the perception of photos and the reality that they depict,” said Allen Murabayashi, PhotoShelter cofounder and chairman.

The guide features the following photography competitions: Nikon Small World Photomicrography Contest; World Press Photo; Sony World Photography Awards; Red Bull Illume; PDN Photo Annual; NPPA Best of Photojournalism; Audubon Photography Awards; Aperture Portfolio Prize; the APA Awards; as well as Px3.

Moreover, all 28 photo contest recommendations are based on four main criteria: entry fees; prizes; submission right; and promised exposure.

In addition, The 2020 Photographer’s Guide to Photo Contests is the latest in PhotoShelter’s ongoing series of free business guides for photographers and marketing professionals. PhotoShelter’s library includes 70+ educational guides, including topics such as photo workshops, photo licensing, Instagram hashtags for photographers, e-mail marketing and creating a successful photography portfolio.
