    Photo contests are everywhere, covering a mind-boggling array of subjects, offering mouth-watering prizes. Some are outright tests of endurance and skill. It's time for the TRUTH..... take the poll!

    Well, I don't think it's exploitative if the prizes are good as in the Photomarathon.
    I see some contests awarding really cheap prizes for winners and I kind of find that exploitative. For eg. one contest gave $500 for 1st prize and I think it was organized by a big establishment. If that isn't exploitative, I wonder what is?

    unfortunately, "quantity" does not necessarily mean "quality".

    Ok, let's not try to make this another 'Newbies Outing Chit-chat' or 'Sentosa Outing on...' thread.

    I didn't think an outing thread would either.

    It also usually gives me a theme to work on in case I run out of themes or the energy to snap the mundane world out there...

    photo contest is like having to take assignments...teacher give student a theme to work on...then give time to brainstorm/research/crackhead/trials/do do do finally submit.

    but to be exploited or not...that's up to the competitors...they make the decision to either join or not to join...
