Deadline extended & submission fees reduced

NEW deadline April 15, 2020

Exact closing time is 11:59pm (PDT). Check your time zone difference here:

We’ve heard from a number of you over the last few weeks with concerns about managing your shifting day-to-day priorities during the COVID-19 pandemic and wanting to enter our current awards before the deadline.

Effective immediately we have discounted all submission fees by 50%, extended the submission deadline to April 15th and removed all late fees.

  • Upload 6 photos for $18. Additional photos are $2.50 each.
  • Upload 1 series for $23. Additional series $16 each

More then ever, I am looking forward to the live-stream portion of our judging, giving us an opportunity to all come together and celebrate each other’s accomplishments.

If you have any questions I’d love to hear from you in our Facebook group.

Please stay informed, stay calm and stay healthy,
