Press Release - The Motif Collective, a new internet start-up located in Fernandina Beach, Florida just launched its First Online Photography Competition.
For a very small entry fee, http://www.motifcollective.com allows photographers to take part in photographic competitions where they are independently judged by professional photographers.
The industry does have a number of Photography Competitions but other than the once a year hosted events by the Big Camera manufacturers there are only a handful of providers supporting monthly competitions with cash awards. The majority of online completions do not support photographers very well, they charge entry fees without giving out cash awards and those that do only give out a flat rate with no regard for how much in entry fees were collected. The demand for competitions has grown exponentially in the past few years’ right along with the digital photography market and although the exact number is not known it is estimated that over one million paid submissions are made each year.
With The Motif Collective winners of the online photography competitions will receive, web promotions, press releases and cash awards which are financed by the entry fees. Where competitors are only paying out an average of 0-9% of their entry fees, Motif will always pay out 50% of all entry fees to the top three Awards Spots in each competition. Competitions will be hosted monthly and the more competition an event has the larger the prize will be. Initially they plan to just offer one new theme each month with the complete focus of the event on single subject
