Multiple competition deadlines looming … enter now!
I hope everyone is aware of several competition deadlines that are fast approaching. I have listed five January deadlines here for your convenience (listed chronologically by deadline). Some are free, while others are cheap and there are competitions for both students and professionals. Please remember to submit your work – the results are only valid if the winners are chosen amongst a rich sampling of other work in our field! Best of luck to everyone and please let me know if there are any other upcoming deadlines we should be know about.
“Two big deadlines are fast approaching:
