We had Catherine Hall on our planet5D Live show about a month ago – she co-hosts the TWiT Photo show with Leo Laporte – and they're running a contest where they're looking for a hot emerging photographer to be a guest on their show – it could be you!
About the contest
Petaluma, CA – TWiT Photo, the premier photo show in the industry, has launched TWiT Photo Guest Quest, a search for the hottest emerging photographer. The flagship photography show on the TWiT Netcast Network is offering a chance to be a guest on a Winter 2011/2012 episode.
The contest will provide explosive exposure for a phenomenal photographer – the winner will share the spotlight with illustrious guests such industry legends as CreativeLive pioneer Chase Jarvis, NAPP President and No. 1 bestselling author Scott Kelby and Pulitzer Prize winner Vincent Laforet.
Similarly distinguished past guests such as Art Wolfe, Colby Brown, Tamara Lackey, Frank Doorhof and Zack Arias have signed up to be a part of the TWiT Photo Guest Quest judging panel.
To enter, emerging photographers with 5 years or less professional experience will submit a portfolio of 15-20 images based on a cohesive body of work that is a strong representation of their visual style.
From Oct. 25 to Nov. 22, participants must submit their entries to a preferred social media platform: Google+, Facebook, 500px, or Flickr.
