Why enter contests? Most photogs I know don’t do it for the cash or trophy…they do it for (a) bragging rights and (b) to see how they stack up. Plus, sometimes – just maybe – it can influence the boss (or prospective boss).
The fifth annual Concentra Award deadline is coming up – a competition only for VJs. There’s no distinguishing where you work – be it TV, the Internet…all you need to be is a lone wolf with camera and the ability to cover a story without support from reporters or producers.
Oh – and if you do prove to be the world’s best VJ, there is a cash award of 10,000 euros. In hard US cash (today only, considering the fluctuating dollar) that’s over $14,000.
