Nobody particularly enjoys being criticized right? Though some part of us certainly wants to be recognized when we have created something spectacular or when we have perfectly captured a moment. Maybe the curiosity of your friends and family telling you that “you’re so talented you should be a pro” makes you seek an unbiased opinion? Or maybe you just want to try to win some money for what you already love doing? Well there are plenty of venues to satisfy any of those needs, and here’s a list of a few sites that are constantly posting new photo-contests:
