34th Annual Spring Photography Contest – sponsored by SIGMA
The 34th Annual Spring Photography Contest sponsored by SIGMA is open to all amateur photographers, both student and non-student, in the United States, Canada and worldwide
Subject matter is open, and we have no categories. You must indicate for each photo entered whether it is a black-and-white photo or color; however, the judges and publisher may move it from one color to the other for judging and, if chosen, for publication in the hardcover book.
To determine the Winners and Honorable Mentions, we employ a panel of three judges, changing judges with each contest. Our judges are always professional photographers who are also college-level photography instructors.
We accept both digital and traditional film photography. Digitally manipulated photos are also acceptable.
Established in 1977, Photographer’s Forum magazine is an award-winning quarterly publication dedicated to quality reproduction of photography in the United States and Canada. Each issue strives to facilitate communication and publication experience among emerging professionals.
