Amateur Photographer of the Year Competition

Michael The Maven’s 2011 Photography Contest

3CU1s Contest is open to all ranges of experience of photography, from beginners to amateurs, semi-pro or even professionals, however, we ask that semi pro and professional photographers do not submit images for the contest in the category in which they specialize. For example, if you are a wedding or portrait photographer, you may submit images in any category but “Portraits”. This is an honor rule.

Main Categories:-

Portraits –
Landscape-
Sports-
Animals-
Abstract / Textures-
Macro-

There are no entry fees, however this is a family friendly website and we reserve the right to disqualify entries for any reason. This includes but is not limited to any image which may be deemed as inappropriate, offensive, pornographic, poor taste, cruel to animals, advertising, spam etc. We are looking for fantastic imagery that inspires all of us to get out and shoot. If you are under 18, you must obtain your parents permission before entering.

Entrants may submit up to 2 photographs in each category on the following condition; One image was taken in the last year (From the Period of October 9th 2010 to October 9th 2011) and a second image being taken during the duration of the contest submission dates, from October 9th – December 1st 2011. The whole idea of the contest is to get everyone out shooting, but I also recognize you may have some great shots taken earlier in the year. Contestants may submit only one image from either of those periods if they choose. This is an honor rule (meaning we expect you to play fair on this), but if we have evidence to the contrary, we will have to disqualify the entry.

Judge Panel-

Michael Andrew
Shannon Morgan – 2009 Grand Prize Winner
Fely Simion – 2010 Grand Prize Winner
Angelina Hills – World Class Maui Portrait and Wedding Photographer
Arden Ward – World Renown Alabama Portrait and Wedding Photographer
