Each month, jpeg2RAW holds a Photo Contest or Photo Challenge.  The purpose of these contest/challenges is to encourage people to get out and shoot and to seek continued improvement.  Anyone can enter, but you do have to follow a few rules:

Monthly Photo Contest Rules

  • Contest starts the first day of each month
  • One entry per person.
  • Image should be in good taste (ie, PG-13 or less, nothing obviously offensive)
  • Image must be taken during the month of the contest.
  • Photographer retains copyright, but grants jpeg2RAW the right to post on our Facebook Group, Facebook Page, the Podcast, other social sites used by jpeg2RAW and our websites in a blog post. In each use, photo credit will be given to photographer.
