For those who attended any of the first three Black Hills Photo Shootouts the event is holding a first-ever photo shootout contest.
Set up like a sports tournament with head-to-head bracketing and online voting plus judging, the Photo Shootout Contest is pretty unique. Competitors will work their way through pairings to the final vote/judgement. Full details and rules are available now at www.thephotoshootout.com/photo-shootout-contest.
Some great prizes from ThinkTank Photo, Outdoor Photo Workshops, Vanguard and Zenfolio are up for grabs including free registration to the 2013 Black Hills Photo Shootout in South Dakota. Overall Grand Prize winner will be chosen by 2012 Keynote Speaker Rick Sammon.
Other cool stuff at the brand new Shootout website includes a chance to pre-register for the 2013 Black Hills Photo Shootout and don't miss the tab for the just-announced 2014 Tampa Bay Photo Shootout. That's right, the Shootout concept is spreading to Florida!
Deadline for the contest is November 11, so you won't want to waste any time in getting your best shots ready and submitted. Participants in the recent 2012 Black Hills Photo Shootout should have received an email with one free entry fee to the contest.
