Enter to Win Travel, Professional Guidance and a Once-in a-Lifetime Portfolio-Building Opportunity

Which photographers’ paradise will you choose if you win this free-to-enter sweepstakes? London? Iceland? Jamaica? New York? Submit a completed entry and a link to your website/portfolio by visiting buildyour.photography today for a chance to win the Believe in What You’re Building Photo Trip Giveaway. The Winner gets an exciting, portfolio-building, mentored trip with the world-acclaimed professional photo/video experts at CP Collectives. The Winner also receives a one year free subscription to Zenfolio's ProSuite plan to build your professional presence. It’s free, and it takes just a minute or two to enter.

Imagine receiving personal, individual instruction from wildly creative professionals while visiting one of the most photogenic destinations on Earth. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity that can lift your talents—and promotional gallery—to astronomical new heights. And just by entering this drawing there’s a chance your work will be showcased on CP Collectives Instagram and in Shutterbug articles this upcoming December, January and February.

Building your portfolio is hard—and it requires much more than a collection of wedding photos (even if stunning), some community pro bono images or a fortuitous spot news shot or two. But, it can be difficult to get access to great portfolio-building opportunities as an aspiring professional photographer. That’s why Identity Digital, the folks that run .photography, have partnered with CP Collectives to offer you a dream mentorship and photo trip opportunity.

Someone is going to win. Why not you?
