Over the next month Digital Photography School is running it’s first ever photography competition where DPS members are invited to submit their best portrait image.
Entries close on 31 October.
We have three great prizes with a total prize value of close to $1000.
First prize is a choice of either a Nikon D60 or a Canon XSi (pictured above). Both of these DSLRs get great reviews and are the ideal way to step into the world of DSLR. If you’ve already got a DSLR they’d make a great second body or a gift to that special person in your life!
Second prize is a Canon Powershot SD850 IS. This very popular point and shoot camera is small and produces great results. It’d make a great back up camera if you don’t want to haul your DSLR with you or even a primary camera if you’re in need of an update.
Third Prize is a (pictured right).
This bag is ideal if you need a shoulder bag that provides a protective environment for your camera equipment, especially if you need one that doesn’t scream photo bag.
Part of the Million Dollar Home Range of camera bags, the 5 Million Dollar Home has a padded interior with configurable dividers and sturdy base layer. Equipped with an adjustable removable strap and water resistant shell means this bag is the perfect travel companion for your photo gear.
A special thanks to Photrade for putting up the first prize and to for putting up the third prize!
