Photo Contests

For all of the photo and film fans out there, it’s a great time to get inspired.

Trailspace blog just completed it’s first ever member photo contest.  There were 227 entries and the winners are nothing but spectacular.

The inspiring thing is that these are just people who are interested in wildlife photography, like you and me.  As Scott, the featured photographer above, said, “I’ve basically self taught myself through a lot of trial and error and help from several generous souls on some online photography forums.”

There are contests like this on the local level too.

Right now the Morgantown Adventure Photo and Film Festival (MAPFF) is in full swing.

Dozens of photos are on display at Black Bear Burritos in downtown Morgantown where you can vote on your favorite photo and help choose the 2010 winner.

The film portion of the festival will be held tomorrow, April 22nd, at the Warner Theater just up the road.

So come down and support local artists and hobbyists like yourself!
