Elements of Award Winning Images: Lessons learned from Juried Exhibitions and Other Competitions


Winning a photo contest is difficult, yet not impossible. A beautiful image is not necessarily the secret to success. You must start with a sharp, well-exposed image to make any headway at all, but to stand out among thousands – or even tens of thousands – of sharp, well-exposed images, your work must have more than “pretty” going for it.

Donald Brown, a past-president of CNPA, entered the world of juried exhibitions in 2013 by competing for acceptances in International Exhibitions of Photography. He currently has earned over 600 acceptances, images juried-in and included in Exhibitions, among them a number of medal-winning photographs. From this experience and from serving as a juror (judge), he has gained a unique perspective on what makes a winning image and the judging process itself. In this presentation, Don shares some of the lessons learned from competing that will help you in your image-making and encourage you to develop a good “visual language”.
