Are you wondering where you can find competitions for the latest photo assignment? Here’s some ideas focusing around people competitions at local fairs and festivals. This time of year is popular for county and state fairs and festivals. Around my area this weekend are a half dozen festivals scheduled. Many of these events have competitions of all sorts.
Livestock competitions at fairs will have not only great people expressions but the animals have their own personalities. Makes for very compelling photos.
Autumn in upstate New York has many seasonal festivals like the Great Cortland Pumpkinfest with its annual youth pumpkin decorating contest. For the farmers and gardeners, there is a biggest pumpkin contest.
Looking for excitement and kids having a good time? Look for kid events at a fair or festival. Talent and eating contests make for great photos!
