Warning. This is not a free contest. You must join their organization and you must pay a fee to enter photos in the contest. The material they provide you before signing up does not tell you this up front, but only after you've given them contact information. So proceed with caution.
Cheers,
rfs

Yes you are correct that this is not a free contest but a juried gallery show. As with any legit juried show there is an entrance fee (which is spelled out in the prospective) but there are two fees, $35 for non members for the first 3 images and $10 for each one after that. Members pay $20 for the first 3 and $10 for each one after that.

As noted there are awards for selected works but the main reward is being selected as this can help with your marketing of your work. It also doesn't hurt that this show is juried by Kim Weston, a fine art photographer and grandson of Edward Weston.

I appreciate the warning. I know of no good reason to reveal costs only after contact information is collected.

As stated this is not a contest but a juried art photography show. The entrance fee is kept low and as a non profit covers our costs and is standard in the business.

As a form of marketing juried gallery shows stand out more than an honorable mention in a free photo contest. The work is judged against fine art photographers from around the world.

Plus the prospective does spell out all costs and is free to view in both PDF and Word format from the Call for Entries page.

Please keep in mind that this is a Juried Gallery Show and not just a contest. Fine art photography is a market where the work of artists is seen as having a higher value and by being seen in a gallery helps the artist to sell their work.

I posted it here since this forum has a higher number of photographers who do nude photography and for those artists who want their work to be seen in galleries and marketed to art buyers. To be honest I do not think that strict glamour photography would do well in this show though a case can be made for a show just about glamour photography. I have seen a number of images posted here that could easily be in this show but these are more the images of art than titallation.
