Information About The Package

Why This Will Help
Genuine advice from one of the world's most experienced photo competition judges - with a guarantee to improve your photography!

I have judged many photo competitions and there are lots of little things that entrants forget to do. If only I could let them know before they entered, they would do so much better!

As a judge I’m not allowed to ring up and help entrants, but I can show you here what I have learnt over the last thirty years that will give you a great head start.

No one can give you an iron-clad guarantee that you will win the next photo competition. However, what I can guarantee is that if you read my eBook and watch the accompanying movies, you will greatly improve the quality of your photography and your standing in competitions generally.

You see, whether you’re aiming to win a photography competition or just take a better photograph, the advice is very similar. And I know that the techniques and approaches I’ve developed will help you capture and produce better photographs.

Slide 1
Competition Approach

For the serious traveller, Traveller Magazine is a mine of information, keeping you up-to-date with the latest trends in travel and tourism.

By understanding competitions, judges and the various systems, you'll find it a lot easier to choose the right photos to enter - and how to present them.

Slide 2
Capture Techniques

This nourishing lotion is clinically proven to improve the health of dry skin in 1 day with significant improvement in 2 weeks.

Although you can look through your files for photos to submit, the best entries have been photographed carefully in the first place. Here's what you need to know and do!

Slide 3
Processing Techniques

Formulated with all natural ingredients, this mild liquid soap contains pro-vitamin B4, B5 and glycerine.

You don't need 'tricky' post-production to win photo competitions, but you do need to present your images with high quality editing. And it's easy to do!

Slide 4

This BBQ & Grill Spices gift set is perfect for every barbecue and grill lover! It's ideal to keep close at hand in your spice rack.

Slide 5
Real World Examples

This BBQ & Grill Spices gift set is perfect for every barbecue and grill lover! It's ideal to keep close at hand in your spice rack.

So, rather than just talking about what makes a great competition entry, let's show you some examples taken from real photographers with real entries. These examples are presented as online movies and are not to be missed.

My eBook and movie package is called How To Win Photo Competitions. It begins with a little about me. Why? Well, it’s easy enough to write a book about winning photography competitions, but I will gently suggest it’s much better if the author has some experience, not just in winning competitions, but in judging them too.

Over the years, I’ve been fortunate to win quite a number competitions around the world, plus I have extensive experience as an international judge and competition organiser. Check out my little brag book!

But enough about me - this is all about helping you capture and edit better photographs - and by extension, being in a better position to win a photo competition.

However, do you need to win to be happy? It is nice, of course, but just doing well in a photo competition can be incredibly satisfying. And what can we realistically expect when we enter? While we control how good our own photos are, we have no control over what the judges think or what other photographers enter - so how can we be sure of winning anything?

My most successful result in a competition was coming second. Tim Griffith won the 1995 AIPP Australian Professional Photographer of the Year and I was one of the category winners. Was I upset I hadn't won? Hell, no! I was ecstatic because suddenly my photos were up on the wall alongside all the really good photographers. Coming first is great, but that acknowledgement was so much more important for me - and I'm guessing it would be for you too.

And that's what I want to share with you - why entering photo competitions is so much fun and so rewarding, if only you have the correct approach. There are four eBooks to lead you through the program.

In addition to the four eBooks, there are over 25 short movies, each explaining in more detail how a real photo entry could be improved or enhanced for judging.

Feedback for Real Entries
There are over feedback 25 movies with more planned for the future, each presenting a 'real entry' from a 'real photo competition' and helpful advice. These movies alone make the package worth its price!

This complete package has been carefully thought through and presented to give everyone a chance at winning a photo competition. Follow the directions and you’ll be surprised at what you can achieve as a photographer!

By now, we hope you have a good idea of what's in the package, which retails for AUS $129.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Have I seen this information elsewhere? Do I need to buy it again?

Yes, you may have seen some of this information elsewhere - but only published by Better Photography. This is the second edition of the book and much of the content in the first three eBooks has been revised and updated, with new photos. The content in the (fourth) Feedback eBook has been published over the past few years in Better Photography magazine. However, all the Feedback movies are brand new. If you were a current subscriber to Better Photography in May 2021 when we released this package, we sent you an offer with a significant discount as we agree, you shouldn't have to pay twice for content you already have.

Do I need any special software for the course?

No special software is required. The eBooks can be viewed in your browser or downloaded to your computer and opened with any viewer software (such as Adobe Reader, which is free). The movies are viewed online, so you can do that with any Mac or Win computers, anything that has an internet browser and internet connection. In terms of following the advice given in How To Win Photo Competitions, no special image editing software is required. We recommend Adobe Lightroom as an excellent choice, but if you know Photoshop, Capture One, Affinity Photo, Luminar etc, these can all put the ideas and suggestions into practice.
