I am an emerging photographer…

Posted by Melissa Dubasik

Hundreds of up-and-coming wedding photographers have already tweeted this statement to the world on emerge Photo Contest’s Twitter page in hopes of becoming one of 15 winners in the emerge Photo Contest.

Emerge is designed to give new wedding photographers a way to showcase their work, and for this reason, it is operated differently than most photo competitions. Emerge gives each entrant their very own website to feature an entire wedding photo story by submitting up to five photos in each of the categories: wedding preparation, details, venue, the kiss and favorite wedding. You’re submitting multiple images – not just one!

So why should you enter? We thought you’d ask so here are four reasons why you should break away from the crowd and emerge:

1) Exposure – The top five winners receive a coveted listing on The Knot, the web’s leading wedding planning site, one write-up in RANGEFINDER magazine as an Editor’s Choice, a profile on RESOLVE, plenty of Twitter and Facebook buzz and more.

2) Cool prizes – A Sony camera and lens worth nearly $3000, shootQ, Pictage and liveBooks accounts for one year, Think Tank gear, Induro Tripod Kit and plenty of others.  Visit the emerge website for the complete listing.

3) Low entry fee – You’re entering to win thousands of dollars in prizes and some fantastic exposure for a low entry fee of $29.  Go to to get started now.

4) Exposure – did we mention that already?  The value of ‘exposure’ to the modern photographer… priceless

The last day to enter is May 31st, and that is less than two weeks away.  Are you ready to emerge?  If so, check the official rules to register – and away you go.  And for all of you experienced photographers, what are your words of advice for these emerging wedding photographers?  Please share your thoughts in the comment section below.
