Contest 2021

Photographer Explorer is pleased to invite you to participate in our contest for the best professional photographer. Both new users and already registered ones can participate. Currently, there are 50 registered participants.

About Us

Photographer Explorer is an online directory of professional photographers for hire. The website is developed in Europe and operates internationally. For more information, please see the benefits for photographers and our search engine.

The Prizes

The prize for the winner is a gift card worth $180 for Amazon or PhotoSynthesis (at the winner's choice). Additionally, the top 10 participants will receive a free 6-month subscription for Photographer Explorer.

The Criteria

The winner will be the participant, whose listing inspires the most confidence, that the client can trust him/her to shoot for them. The main criterion for this will be the best photos, regardless of their genre. But, the professional quality of the listing will also matter:

  • completeness and quality of the portfolio
  • completeness of the listing - an adequate introduction, availability of contact information, price information, etc.
  • availability of a photo studio address, for the genres in which it is necessary

How to Enter

The entry deadline is December 15, 2021. Entry is easy. Just follow these steps:

  1. Create your listing from the button below. You will first be asked to sign up for Photographer Explorer (if you haven't already).
  2. If you have a photo studio, enter its address when creating the listing, or afterwards.
  3. Upload at least 10 photos from your portfolio. The first uploaded photo should be the one that presents you the best.
  4. In the corresponding fields, enter an introduction, at least one category, your pricing information, a phone number, and a website (if you have one).
  5. On your listing's edit page, ensure the listing is eligible for the contest.

When all requirements are met, this will be indicated when editing your listing. Additionally, your listing will appear in the Latest Participants section below on this page. We monitor the website regularly and we won't miss you.

If you already have a listing and it meets the requirements, just send us a message that you want to participate, along with a link to your listing.
