Photo Posting | Contest Site To Check Out
Updated: Jun 2, 2019
My job requires me to spend endless hours on the computer and the internet (often times sorting out the problems on customer computers in addition to locating parts and information); so the thought of spending hours on social media sites or elsewhere is something I tend to avoid like the plague. That said, a couple of years ago I was given a membership to a photo posting site designed for photographers. To be honest, I didn't have high expectations. I posted a copy of the Mesa Verde poster I designed for the park to see what would happen. After a few days I started getting feedback from other photographers on the site. Then I won an award for the posting. Maybe this site has some value after all I thought. So I started posting more photos and after getting more and more feedback I was hooked. It became a place for me to find out which photos people liked the best. That feature alone makes the site well worth the cost ($4.92 per month for the premium service, though they have a scaled down free version as well); but in addition they run regular photo contests with AMAZING prizes. I haven't won anything yet (other than accolades and being ranked in the top 30% of all photographers on the site) but the competition is pretty steep. If you're looking for a site to post photos that can't be stolen (especially when you post them to social media through the site) and another place to sell your shots I highly recommend ViewBug.
