ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CALL FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

NOTINDOOR Photography magazine is looking to find the most inspiring photogrsphers of 2017, along with discovering new talents that really deserve the stage and eyes of millions of people around the world.

We always believed that photography can save the world, but we all know it takes big communities to do so.  Some of the best ways are photography contests that donate their profits to the organizations that are most active and serious about reversing climate change and global warming.

We want to see your view of the world through your vision and what inspires you to get out and shoot. Yes, techniques and knowledge in photography are important but they should never be the determine factor of how good a photograph is.  For that reason, all level of photographers are welcomed to show off their talent and love for Mother Nature.

There are no limits to the creativity photographers have.

NIDPOTY 2017 awards the winners with cash prizes of over over $10,000 and the opportunity to have their photos exhibited for almost two months at the G2 Gallery.  A well respected gallery here in Los Angeles. That exhibit can take your photography to a higer level.  And, of course, the winners will get to be published in our internationally distributed photography magazine at the beginning of 2018 and through our social media and more.
