Background Showdown Contest photographs can display loaded bookshelves, minimalistic walls, RGB backlighting, and anything showing individuals’ background game as the entries will be judged on composition, clarity and creativity.
Well-executed photos display uniqueness and creativity. Through photo contests, both consumers and sponsors/organizers can gain something. The organizers gain the contact details of the participants through the online form completed by entrants. These phone numbers and emails can help them increase and improve their advertising and marketing. Also, consumers can receive a chance to win prizes and simultaneously promote themselves, especially if they are interested in photography.
