Blue Ribbon Photos, Photography Contest – Colors

EDITED: This month’s contest is over. Thanks for entering and if you missed out this time, keep your eyes peeled for next month!

I’ve always wanted to hold a photo contest and have decided to make it ongoing (assuming it is blueribbonlogo250successful).  Welcome to Blue Ribbon Photos, my first ever photo contest.  I’ve got bigger things in mind for this but will kick it off here for now!

Every month, I will hold a photo contest here, each one with a different theme.  There will be two judges for each contest, where we will narrow down the entries one by one to choose the winners.  There will only be one Blue Ribbon winner and 2 runner ups.

I will be sharing my own photo for the current theme, however, it will not be eligible for the contest;) It will be a fun way for me to involved a little bit too.


Please read the complete rules before submitting your photo!

Photo entries will be taken from today, April 1st through April 15th at 10pm CST.  That’s two full weeks to get your photo submitted here!

April’s theme is “COLORS”. April is a vibrant month to me so I can’t wait to see your creative entries for this theme!

The prizes for April are:

  • Blue Ribbon Winner – Point & Shoot Camera valued at $100
  • 2nd prize – Camera Bag
  • 3rd prize - $20 amazon gift card

Here is my April photo, which of course is not eligible but it’s fun to share my viewpoint of the theme.  I put this on my food blog too but what the heck!


Now it’s YOUR turn! Remember to read all the rules BEFORE submitting your link here to avoid disqualification.  I hope that you find this fun and exciting and really hope that you spread the word and participate.

Once your submission is ready, put the link below that goes directly to your photo entry. Winner will be announced on April 20th.

Feel free to leave your comments here about my photo, other entries and the contest in general. I welcome your feedback. Be sure to check out each entry and leave comments on their submission as well!

    I submitted an entry, too. I love to look at everyone’s photos, so this is a great excuse! :) Yours is especially lovely with all of the colors.

    I linked to a post where there are several pictures, but the one that I want to enter is marked. It’s the last one at the bottom of the post.

    Fun theme!
