One of my New Year’s Resolutions this 2015 – aside from publishing my own book – is to be more active in joining photo contests and reputable Photo sites so that some of my photos will hopefully get more exposure to the worldwideweb. I have Flickr and some of my photos have been used on Yahoo online as well as in some commercial newsletters but that’s it. I suppose I have reached a point where I feel I have matured so much as a photographer and it’s about time I start joining competitions.
So my first try which happened this week was with The Guardian‘s Photo Assignment on the theme of ‘JUMP’. I have submitted three (the first three below) and hopefully, at least one of them, would be chosen alongside others for their “The New Review” online gallery. I’ll keep you posted!
1st Submission: Fishermen’s sons of Mabua showing off their jumping skills, Surigao, Philippines
2nd Submission: This mother jumps for coins thrown in by tourists arriving from a boat. Jagna, Bohol, Philippines
3rd Submission: This boy shows off his jumping skill infront of a boat filled with tourists
then swims up to the boat hoping for COINS of admiration. Bohol, Philippines
Not submitted: Diver practicing in the Seine River. Paris, France
Not submitted: We have just moored our friends’ boat after some gentle sailing in Corfu waters when Amber, the daughter, couldn’t wait anymore and jumped behind our backs. Well, not me and I was glad I had my camera ready to take the shot! Corfu, Greece
