Not exactly related to Photoshop but I believe a lot of people might be interested in this Competition. Stockvault, one of the most well known sites offering free stock photos has launched a competition for the Best Stock Photo of 2006. Obviously this is a photography competition and the prize for the winner is 1000$. The competition is open to everybody that likes photography, no matter if he is an amateur or a pro and to be honest I am hoping that I will find some time to send a couple of entries, since photography is one of my favorite hobbies. Submissions of course need to be original and your own work and the minimum size is about 2MP.
So go ahead and read about the competition and don’t hesitate to participate.
