The Long Lens blog: Photography with added snaps, art and culture

The photography site for sore eyes. Featuring: Art, photography, performance and theatre. With extra writing because I'm also a writer.

It’s competition time!

January is the big month for photography competitions. Most of the deadlines for competitions here in the UK – and those abroad which us Brits are eligible to enter – are in January (one or two are in December).

So, in the interest of helpfulness, here are links those photographic competitions which enjoyed a late December/January deadline.<o:p></o:p>

This should come in useful for 2011. Competitions listed in date order. Where possible, new dates for 2010 are listed. Some grants deadlines are also listed.
