Why Does Proify Charge an Entry Fee? Proify is a not for profit competition. All entries fees go straight back into promoting the competition and your photography. We do not sell your photographs or personal information.
Smoky eyes, a domineering smile or a vacant look can all add depth and beauty in the portrait category. Focus on revealing the story behind your subject’s expressions through subtle details and you’ll automatically bring the added depth required for this category.
Landscape photography has a unique ability to inspire awe and a sense of connection to the world around us. Whether you photograph the sun peaking from the mountain tops or a sleepy city skyline at dawn, this popular category has endless potential to impress our judges.
Beneath the urban fortress where cities come alive and a million lives are played out on a daily basis. What will your photograph reveal? A lone street performer or the huddle of businessmen marching through the rain? Submit your street images to gain respect in this quickly rising style.
Nightscapes and low light photography make up this category. Modern day technology at its greatest is used here, capturing everything after dark from startrails and celestial masterpieces to heavenly auroras or even something as simple as passing traffic – creativity is key.
Love may be in the air – but usually so are highly strung emotions and dozens of other factors to be considered. Despite the stressful situation under which wedding photographers work, their images can be among some of the most evocative & enduring.
Immerse your audience in a panoramic view of your chosen scene and reveal the beauty that’s possible with an overwhelmingly oversized piece of art. Whether you use a specialized camera or stitch images together, the end result can be simply stunning.
Instagram has brought retro styling in photography back to the mainstream. Never has taking pictures been more fun, thanks to filters and effects that can transform an ordinary image into a nostalgic revival of yesteryear’s visual aesthetic. Relive the past.
Expand the view of your beautiful photo with the use of HDR. This category seeks to find the most interesting and breathtaking images employing the careful and subtle meshing of multiple exposures. Be mindful not to over process your images.
