Shadow & Light Magazine-coverWe have decided to open up early entry for the Shadow & Light Magazine Annual Photography Competition, Color It Red. As usual there will be the incredible honor of being in the Winner’s Gallery of Shadow & Light Magazine. Early entry fee is $25 for up to five images, with no others allowed. Early entry will be closed November 30, 2018, when the fee will go up to $35 for the same amount of entries.

Color It Red 2017 Winners: Susan Brandt Graham (image-left Featured/Cover Photographer) had her work featured and was on the cover as well (left). Six other artists had their portfolios featured in that issue as well. Up to 10 other selected photographers had images placed in the Single Image Showcase.

Throughout the years this has been a very popular call-for-entry, and we are looking forward to seeing your “Red” images.
