And Winners of the NYIP Photography Course Are….


Thanks to everyone who entered our recent competition to win one of 3 Fundamentals of Photography Courses from New York Institute of Photography.

We had over 1000 entries and it was a tough choice for NYIP to choose the winners as so many people put great entries together. The response was so overwhelming that NYIP have decided to offer a special $100 discount or free shipping (depending where in the world you are) to all who enroll in the Fundamentals of Photography Course. You can see details of this and a message from them below.

But first – the 3 Winners have each just been emailed with details of their win and are:

  • Joe
  • CatWalker
  • Heather

A Message from the New York Institute of Photography

In reading through the hundreds of responses that we got from this post, it was fascinating to see all of the reasons people wish to take our Fundamentals of Digital Photography course.  Some responses told stories of life long photographers who were looking to improve their skills in the digital world and others were from teachers or parents wishing to learn more so that they could pass on the information to others.

We hope that those of you who did not win will continue to consider the New York Institute of Photography for your educational needs. In fact, many of you seem to already be too advanced for the Short Course and may want to look into the Complete Course in Professional Photography where you can learn more about the business of photography.

Thank you all for the kinds words about NYIP and for participating in the giveaway conversation. The sheer number of responses was inspiring.  Thanks to DPS for hosting the great contest.  And a special congratulations to the winners, I am sure we’ll be hearing from you soon.

Because the response was so great, we’d like to extend a limited-time special discount offer on our Fundamentals of Digital Photography Course.  If you are in the US and Canada, enroll online at and use the offer code 2F1 to save $100.  If you are outside the US and Canada, use the offer code 1FF1 to get free shipping.  Thank you all!

Thanks again to everyone who entered and to NYIP for their sponsorship of this competition!

    Looks like NYIP finally updated their material. I took the course a few years ago and the material was older then me. It had a ton of material for dark rooms and negatives, that's how out-dated it was.
