Wow Gaby, this is an amazing list. I had just started making a list too since there were so many different competitions. It is a bit overwhelming. Thanks for all the work you put into this and for sharing it with the community.

·

Yeah @gabyoraa we were gonna work on curating a list of games/contests if we found the time it's a great idea. Still may do it in my own little way with tables and what not but happy to not have to do it for a while seeing you made this rock awesome post!

·
·

Oh no, I stole your idea!!!! Ha ha ha. Well I wish someone had done this before. I had a hard time figuring out what day was what. I knew the contests put some didn't have the rules so I had no idea what day theme it was. I hope it helps everyone out.

AWESOME post Gaby !!! And thanks for the mention !!!!
I saw some familiar faces but I need to check the rest !!!
Excellent advice :) 100%+resteemed! [here's your curation :P ]

·

Thanks @meanmommy33
You gotta check out the other photographers! They're awesome.

Gaby, this is SUPER useful. It must have taken you a good chunk of time to compile this post so well done and thanks for sharing!

I didn't even realise there were SO many photo contests / challenges going on at the same time. Quite like the 7 continents one actually :-)

And @kieranstone is the best. I came across his profile in my first few days here and am a true fan of his photography!

·

Thanks @ingaaa, yeah it took me almost two weeks ha ha ha. And I came across a lot of contests I didn't even know existed. And yeah @kieranstone 's work is extraordinary.

·
·

Omg, that's crazy! It's definitely a post worth saving/bookmarking (I've done exactly that and have shared it with a few people too)! Really, well done!

·
·
·

awww you guys! :D
I've resteemed it and will look into some of the contests I didn't know about. Steemit needs to raise the hashtag limit now...

·
·
·
·

I agree, 5 hashtags are not enough

·
·
·
·
·

Just an extra one would be great!!

thank you so much! I really appreciate.. really useful info .. trying to find out more about how to use and share with steemit.

You rock @gabyoraa! I had already forgotten about a couple of those contests and learned about a few new ones. Saving this post to my bookmarks and will be checking it again. THANK YOU!

·

You beat me to it! Making this post lol This is tremendous help. Thank you @gabyoraa!

·
·

Oh well apparently there where many with the idea already ha ha ha. Glad it helped!

·

Great! I kept my own post on a bookmark too hahaha. It's my cheat list!

·
·

Haha! It's going to be my cheat list too. Thanks again for your hard work on this!

Whoaaa, this is a very comprehensive post! You obviously worked very hard on it - definitely shows <3 I'll come back to it tomorrow to discover some new people and photo contests you have mentioned - I have not yet discovered all of them either! :-)

Thanks for doing this, I will make sure I'll share your link with Minnow Photographers and/or photography enthusiasts :-)

·

(Gosh your kid is cute)

·
·

Oh, this is awesome, @gabyoraa! I wish I had seen this post when I first started!!!

I'm going to resteem this and then share the link every time I see a new photographer on Steemit. :D

So....are you saying that plagiarism will not be tolerated?

·

Thanks for resteeming @derekkind - so I found this post.
And many thanks for the very well worked out list of competitions in this post @gabyoraa!
Bookmarked for use also in the future.

·
·

@pundito I'm so happy this is helping everyone out!

·

Yeah... I hope I made it clear. ha ha ha

I hope I had a post like this when I started too!!!!!

·

Yeah, I'm not clear on the plagiarism thing. Sooo, use other people's pictures right?

·
·

Lo he repetido, pero cumplo con dejar el comentario: Sencillamente brutal, gracias por compartir toda esta información; además es un honor para mí que me mencionases, un saludo @gabyoraa.

Great post - and awesome resource. Even for those of us deep in the photog groups. Really nice work!

Gaby, this post is SO useful. Thanks so put for bothering to put this together! I'm resteeming :-)

There are so many contests it could us busy from morning till night. haha I take part in a few, host one myself and write biographies on the photographers and that has virtually become and all day event, but I love it. Thanks agin.

·

You are welcome @claudiaz. Wow so much work! Thanks for hosting the contest. We need more people like you on steemit!

·
·

thanks @gabyoora, I believe that we all need to support each other and that way we all benefit.

·
·
·

I think exactly the same. It's the reason why I made this post to begin with. Besides, I know I'm repeating myself but it's the people that make steemit so special!

·
·
·
·

nice post!

·

Just kidding (well I mean it is a nice post, but I won't just say that)
Great work putting all this together and thanks for the mention! Hopefully this post gets seen by all the photographers on here and new Steemians are directed to it :)

·
·

I was going to say “upvoted now vote mine”

·
·
·

@kieranstone Thanks! Feel free to share it with all the new steemers, I found a few contests I didn't even know existed while making this post. So I'm glad it's useful.

P.S:Are you guys ever serious? Ha ha ha.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·

that is a very serious wink...

;|

·
·
·
·
·
·

It's a very Sirius wink...............................

·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Oh no, so "sirius" it's scary.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Rats, I was going to comment this but now I see you already did! :D

·
·
·

Thanks so much for including me and the Nature Photo Contest, @gabyoraa! You're great inspiration in the photography community, for sure! Great job organizing this list.
I've actually been meaning to ask you if you'd like to judge a contest, and if yes, would Textures Thursday or Simple Sunday next week be of interest to you?

·

Hey @shadalene, judging your contest... YES!!! It would be an honour! Count on me.

·
·

Awesome. Let's go with Textures Thursday. :) Can you send me a two-three sentences bio at steemitnaturephotocontest@gmail.com, please? We'll take it from there.. Thanks!

·
·
·

Ok, I'll let you know as soon as I send it.

Hola @gabyoraa que buen post no sabia de algunos concursos que mencionas, no soy una profesional en la fotografía pero me encanta y estoy aprendiendo. Es agradable encontrarme con Venezolanos en este medio, cada vez somos más. Me encantan tus fotos son espectaculares y las ediciones que les haces son buenísimas. Oye, me gustaría preguntarte si para que las fotos se puedan ver en tamaño grande hay que guardarlas en alguna pagina en la web? Gracias. Saludos y éxitos.

·

Hola @mballesteros que bueno conseguir paisanos por aquí. Te comento. No tienes que subirlo a otra página. Con arrastrar la imagen sobre el post es suficiente. Cuando se adjunta, se crea un link y ese es el link que vas a usar para el markdown. Cualquier cosa me avisas y si puedo con mucho gusto te ayudo.

Thanks for sharing useful info. I just realize that so much photo contest in Steemit. Wonderful!

·

@kenclickrich you are most welcome!! :)

Thanks for doing this list! Awesome!

·

@kimmiecfields Oh, you are welcome! Glad it's useful!!!!!!

Awesome, thanks for the info! I just joined a week ago and have been searching for ways to share my photos and get more eyes on them!

I'm also having a little trouble finding quality photographers to follow, looking through the trending, new, hot, promoted tabs at top seem to be like wading through an ocean of posts ...

·

Oh, don't even bother looking at the trends! You now have a list of pretty awesome photographers I shared. You can start of with that! Good luck. Let me know if you need help with anything.

great post :) one that is not purely photo contest but it is a lot of fun for me and you have to submit a photo: Abandoned Shit Weekly

·

I thought about it, but since he doesn't consider it a photography contest himself I wasn't sure about adding it to the list.

Te comento en español porque a pesar de que leo bien el inglés, escribiéndolo me trabo un poco.

Coye, muy completo tu post. Tomé incluso capture en algunas partes para no olvidarlas. ¡Muchas gracias! Te fajaste y eso se valora enormemente.

Un abrazo. :)

·

Gracias @rogghe tengo planeado subirlo en español, pero tenerlo para hoy. Me alegra que te sea útil. Si tienes alguna pregunta, no dudes en preguntar.

i'ts almost overwhelming how many contests there are tbh, i only knew about half of them . great post very usefull

·

Yeah I had no idea either until I started looking into the contest tag. That's why I though making this post would help out.

This is an excellent advice post!! I'm gonna put it in my recommended posts today^^

·

Thank you! Hope it helps!

Dear @gabyoraa, thank you so much for your post. I like your tip to take time to comment, because bottom line, it is about feedback and people. As a newcomer to the @steemit community, I find your post extremely helpful! So thank you for taking time and assembling the information for the rest of us!

·

You are most welcome! I hope I would have found a post like this when I started. Welcome to steemit!

·
·

Thank you so much @gabyoraa! It was very helpful.

Thank you so much @gabyoraa! This is such great useful info! I really had no idea there were so many contests running on steemit. Now I have to go and particpate in more contests that would fit my photography. I really can keep me busy allday ..

·

Hello @hetty-rowan. It's overwhelming right? I didn't know there where so many either. Glad you found it useful.

·
·

Indeed it's overwhelming. So overwhelming in fact that I'm busy searching for photo's all morning, and can't get it in order right now to decide which photo belongs to which contest ... so I waste my time for a whole morning and yet nothing useful. Guess I have to go out with my dogs and camera and make something useful :D

My first resteem. Great work! Exactly, what I search for. Thank you for your time spent on that post.

·

You are welcome! Honoured to be your first resteem!

This is awesome Gaby. Thank you for doing this. It's a real service to the community. Resteemed!

·

You are welcome @camuel. I would have wanted to find something like this for myself when I started, so why not do it for everyone else! Steemit is about the people, and we are here to help each other.

A very useful post, thanks :D

·

Hello my dear Sergio!! You are welcome. Hopefully we can win some more contest!!!

So far I have not found some other contests you mentioned. Thank you for sharing :) This is very useful!

·

Hey @matajingga I've found your photos around some winning contest posts! If you find anymore contests let me know! Glad it was of use for you.

·
·

Thanks @gabyoraa I'm just lucky. Oh! maybe you can add extraordinary-photochallenge in the list.

As a newbie photographer to Steemit, this was incredibly helpful. Thanks! Resteemed

·

@nathanielwise I'm glad this was helpful. Let me know if there is anything I can help you with. Welcome to steemit!!!!

This is a helpful post. My dear friend is a photographer, maybe you would like to check her out. She's on Steemit from recently @sanjalydia

·

Hi @big.mama thanks for stopping by. I haven't seen her work yet, but I will now. (by the way, I had to throw in some photos of my kid, I'm addicted to taking photos of him ha ha ha)

Great work putting all this together, Gaby! Thanks for mentioning Photomatic!
Up&resteem

·

@ananuaremere, well I had to mention photomatic. They are making such a great job supporting all of us. They are an important part of the photographic community of steemit. Thanks for the resteem!

Excellent digest of contests, @gabyoraa, thanks :)

·

@lighteye you're welcome! It's overwhelming the amount right? And this is just in photography!

Wow, this is what I needed, I just joined Steemit and as a photographer looking for good content to follow and to provide good content myself I find this post extremely helpful. You have a new follower now ;)

·

Thanks and welcome to steemit!

Gracias, Gaby, por tomarte el tiempo para hacer un trabajo tan valioso como este. Te mereces un premio.

today I learned!

·

Well, coming from you it means this post really helps. That makes me happy. Thanks for reading and learning!!!!

It is a great post! Very useful! I didn't even know about some of the contests )
I resteemed and will recommend to new photographers.
PS. And thanks for the mention! I am honored to be in one list with these cool photographers )

·

@dmytrokorol not at all! You deserve to be in the list, you are a cool photographer too.

great post with good information, resteemed hopefully it helps more people

·

Thanks @jchauhan hope it does too. I know so many photographers that don't join the contest because they have no idea. And I found a lot of contests I didn't know existed too!

·
·

i had no clue how to make images fullscreen so thanks for that

·
·
·

Oh great, that's awesome news! Let me know if it works!

·
·
·
·

I had a go, got it wrong a few times but i've got it now i've mentioned you in the post also just incase there are other people struggling as i was :)

"I had no idea where to start." ... I feel like you just read my mind :D actually I was in that spot yesterday, so it is great to read some tips. I wasn't sure about come contests (because I saw only one) but now I think I found some that will work for me, so thanks a lot! One more thing... is there any tutorial of how to do some good looking posts? (I mean the lines, links, bolds etc.)

·

Oh, I have many but in spanish. If I find any useful tutorials in english, I'll gladly share them with you. just let me look it but. Anyway if you search "markdowns for steemit" on google you will probably find some.

·
·

Yeah it would be great! (unfortunately I don't know spanish), and I'll check google too, thanks for advice :)

such patience and the willingness to help. thanks for this simple yet direct to the point pointers, this will greatly help me. I'm just starting to do photography so I need all the input I could get and I understood your easily. thanks for simplifying it. more power to you. :D

·

@robiney you are welcome! I'm glad it helps.

Thank you @gabyoraa! I only knew the photocontests one! I will definitely be bookmarking this post for future reference! Also Resteeming ;)

·

Oh @beautifulbullies this comment makes me really happy!!!! You are going to use your new camera a lot more now!!!!!!!

·
·

yep! I am going to need more photos lol I have posted them all so far!

Wonderful post Gaby! So much good information in here. Would have loved to read this when I first started, but even now there's some contests that I'm not familiar with and am looking forward to checking out now! Great work :)

·

Thank you guys! Steemit would not be the same for us photographers without photofeed.

Hello! @gabyoraa

First of all, Thank you for putting-up all of these useful info. I've been here for 4 months now and I don't even know some of these contests / curation projects. I just wish that you posted it 4 months ago, lol

Anyway, since we are a growing community here in #steemit #photography, we might as well help each other out through curation, recognition & sharing of information.

Have a great day!

·

Oh my. I'm really happy I made this post now. Glad it's being useful! Sure thing, for helping each other, I'm checking your posts right now!!!!

·
·

Yes you should be happy / proud of your post. You may even consider this your "legacy" post, as it will remain relevant.

·
·
·

Wow.... Legacy Post. I like that!!!!

I wish i saw a post like this when I joined Steemit!!!!!! How wonderful! And I’m very flattered to be in your list. I too enjoy having you in my feed.

·

Yeah, me too! It's why I made it. I felt so lost at first. Hopefully it will help some new photographers.

Great 🍯 post @gabyoraa! 👏
That would have taken me ages to find all those gorgeous artists you summarized.
You made me find a lot new cool people to follow and much much more ...much appreciate all your efforts 🍻 !!!

eee.

You've done a great job, I was surprised to see I had found nearly all of them but it was great to add a few extra names, so thank you!!! I have post-it-notes all over my homepage of what is on what day and people/pages to go and check. It can get full on... and it can be really time consuming, lucky it fun! ; )

Thank you so much for all the information you have shared @gabyoraa.

This is amazingly helpful!!! I started on here a few days ago and was a bit lost on what to post, thanks!!

YES! This is what I need! It's my third month as a Steemian and there is a LOT going on. I love photography and connecting with people. Choosing which photos to share and which tags to use is very time consuming. I really appreciate you gathering all of this information and sharing it. Following you and resteeming :)

·

Oh wow, didn't know about that one. Checking it out right now.

This post is amazing! Very helpful and useful information. I know some of the photo contests but I didn't even realized that they are so many. This s definitely a post that has to be resteemed and bookmarked. Big thank you for the effort!

@gabyoraa! Great post! Your formatting is always on point.

Thank you for the markdown magic line, I need it in my life!!

Resteemed for you :)

·

Yay! I'm happy that worked out for you!!!

Gosh, I only know 3 out of so many photo contest!
Thanks for sharing this and resteem this post to spread the words, many thanks!

This post is much appriciated!Thank you for sharing all these tips and the contest list!;)

ahahaha nice foto

·

Thanks, @victorbz. I'm happy you got to see it. I'm a fan of your work!

·

I just started studying documentary photography. My teacher only does original black and white film photography. I really admire his work. He is probably the most respected documentary photographer in my country. I'll copy here his webpage here, you might like it, it's nice seeing good work from other countries. I'm sure passing your webpage to him, hope you don't mind!

thank you very much for this link ! going to browse right now :-)

·
·

OMG such wonderful body of work ! thank you again

·
·
·

You're welcome Victor! I'm glad you like it. Not everyone values real documentary photography. Good work is worth sharing!

Fabulous tips. I'm less than a week old here at Steemit, and shooting for 30 posts in my first 30 days. I bookmarked this post, and will refer to it often as I learn. Thank you!

dear friend this is a perfect compilation. very detailed and sufficient.
I'm sure you're tired a lot while preparing it!
we thank you. it will be a source for many photographers!
you are my favorite photographer :) thank you

Thank you very much for your post, it's realllly helpful :)

Thank you so much for this helpful post! I am not a 'photographer' but I do love to take photos and who knows, maybe others will enjoy some of those if they have a chance to see them! 😉
I'm not a coder, a computer whiz, or a writer, but I AM a woman 🤭 looking to share what's in my heart with anyone open to looking!
Some of these contests could lead to just that! 😊 💙 🌻

awesome post, thank you makes it a lot easier to find the competitions ! love your work

Thanks a lot! As a minnow it was exactly what I was looking for!

What a fantastic article and tips! Thank You!

Thankyou so much for such a clear and informative post! I am super new to Steemit and am looking for creative communities and you have compiled such a brilliant list of photographers/communities I can follow and have introduced me to contests!!! I’m so excited!!! Really appreciate all this info you have given. Thankyou.

Thanks Gaby - been looking for a post like this for a long time :)

Thank you so much, this is gonna help me a lot!!
