To promote creativity and practice in photography, we run our Photo of the Month competition, which is open to everyone! The winner gets £100 in Photoion vouchers to spend on our courses and workshops.

This month’s theme will be “Studio Portraiture”.

There are no rules, just find a person as your subject and see what results you can achieve using studio lights! Read our recent article about creativity and light meters to excite your imagination and do something unique. Why not think outside the box and make us question the role that light should play in portrait photography? Whether you want to create a gritty, soulful black and white picture or an ethereal beauty-style portrait – submit your entry to [email protected] by 30th September.

How to Enter

To enter the Photoion Photo of the Month competition, and be in with a chance at winning the £100 in Photoion photography course vouchers, send us your best picture to [email protected] stating “Photo of the Month: September 2019” in the subject line. Images should be in JPEG format, and no smaller than 1000 pixels on their widest side. Only one entry per person is accepted.

Entry opens on 1st September 2019 and closes 23:59 30th September 2019.

The winning entry will be selected by a panel of Photoion Photography School judges. Judges’ decision is final. By entering you agree to our full terms and conditions.

We’re looking forward to seeing your best images!

Good luck!
