Cristina Mittermeier – Photography Competition – Open to Submissions

As part of Cristina Mittermeier course with Masters of Photography, we are thrilled to launch this new photography competition. It is open to all Cristina’s students who have bought her Platinum Access Masterclass but only to those.

Participating in photography competitions offers numerous benefits for photographers seeking to enhance their craft. Firstly, competitions provide a platform for constructive criticism and feedback from experienced judges, in this case Cristina herself, enabling photographers to identify areas for improvement and refine their skills. This competitive environment also fosters creativity and pushes individuals to explore new techniques and subjects, ultimately broadening their artistic vision. In general, the exposure gained through competitions can bolsetr confidence, lead to opportunities for networking, collaboration, and even professional recognition, opening doors to further advancement in the field. We therefore thought it would be a great addition to Cristina’s course.
