So it's been one of those weeks for weather, and I haven't done anything with my camera for days. Lacking any inspiration I got on my computer and looked at some of the photo contest sites I like to got to.

I am rather found of it is sponsored by Samsung. The site runs a weekly contest for everyday people who just love to take pictures. What I really like about this site is the instant, and I do mean instant feedback you get from people.
How it works via Soaphoto's website ~

As you can see I have 422 points, I got that from uploading photos to the weekly contest, and by the participation in the Advanced Amateur area. To become an advanced amateur you have to apply and show them some of your photos, for that you get to upload so many photos a day and can participate in their contest, and believe the prize is a very nice camera, the model changes depending on the contest but generally it is semipro or prosumer type dslr camera by Samsung.

They are now offering a photo album section which gives you even more space to upload and share your photo with other enthusiast. You can write how to articles or just search out a particular subject.

It is really a nice site for any photographer, oh yes and they do offer a professional section to. But I can't speak for it as I haven't made it that far. :)

My only wish is to win, but I am up against some fantastic photographers and the competition is fierce! LOL

I urge everyone to check it out and sign up it's a lot of fun and it is free!
Good Luck!
