    How to win competitions is a 1-hour topic of discussion which I used to do in the past. Hope I can share that someday as a webinar soon. Honestly very difficult to explain in a message here.

    Key thing is to focus on the competition guidelines and most importantly the theme. You can also check previous years winning images to get inspired.

    And again, you need to have those wow images for which you need to have a strong foundation of photography along with composition skills. Go through the courses here and you will get there.

      Thanks sir for your quick response I want to figure out how they decide on a story and subject. I checked some photos previous year winner in wildlife what I found is that it’s a series of photos which can combined into bigger story more like small story part of the life of that animal or subject and that will give a maybe conservation related story , that can be a story of the life of the animal etc. A lot of things possible. So I want to know about the thought process behind this.

      Hi @sudhir, So far, I am not too much into competition (although participated in a few) but I know why I never cracked into it. We would love to have an online session on this topic. Kindly arrange one for everyone’s benefit.
