There is an excellent photography competition held by the World Photography Organization, where anyone can participate with his/her images, a competition which is totally free and is giving not only a money award but also recognition for the talent of the artist. I wanted to share with all of you this chance, cause truly is a great opportunity. I am trying to take part in competitions like this one, and although I have not yet won- in the Saatchi Showdown my work did not make it to stage 2, but thank you all for your warm support - I think that this kind of competitions are a way for artists to find their way. I have the text that describes the awards, the link of the site, and let me tell you that the winner can win from 5.000 to 25.000 $ if his/her work comes to the first place. So, just press the link and you will be in the site, where you can find all the needed details.
