We get a lot of emails every week telling us to sponsor photography awards and although the focus of this website is helping photographers with the web presense, we do recognize the need for support beyond that and for that reason we are going to be helping with the Sony World photography awards this year. If you are one of the contestants that need help with equipment, please get in touch. We have contacts at camera stores around the country and can help you get cheap rentals and bring attention to your submitted images.

    Great site, wonderful information. As per submitting images to calendar and greeting card companies, I have found that it is nearly impossible to submit images directly as few, if any companies, accept unsolicited submissions. I believe I have a number of images that would be perfect for a few particular lines. Do you have any suggestions for breaking though to these companies? Thanks, -Clark
