"Conquering The Artist Competition"

Are you ready to take your digital skills to the next level?  The Artist Competition is definitely one of the hottest areas of competition these days.  The road to Master Artist is no easy path, but the skills you gain along the way will be a huge benefit to your photography career.

We will start by demystifying the Artist Competition so you understand how it differs from Photographic Open.   From there, we will dive into the mind of the Artist judge and get a grasp on why some images do well and others do not. Finally, we will outline a plan for success and walk you through the steps of creating your best possible Artist entry.  

By the time you leave, you will have a better understanding of the process and be on your way to competition success
