dvafoto’s photo contest and grant deadline calendar

This is dvafoto‘s deadline calendar for grants, contests and exhibitions. We maintain the calendar as time and information allows, and can’t guarantee accuracy or comprehensiveness. We try our best. Please send us suggestions and changes via email: deadlines@dvafoto.com.

All of the deadlines listed on this calendar have been vetted to make sure that the contests are not rights grabs. If a contest has an entry fee, it’s listed here because we think it might be worth entering if you feel like you’ve got something that can win. There are a lot of contests out there that are either rip-offs or used to get photography for free, so make sure you read the terms and conditions and consider the cost of entry. The Artists’ Bill of Rights is a good resource for determining whether a contest’s rules protect photographers’ rights.

You can view the calendar here, at google, or in your scheduling software via xml/Google or iCal. If you know of any upcoming deadlines not on the list, please send them to deadlines@dvafoto.com or use the submissions page.
