Chic Critique is super excited to host our own “PHOTOGRAPHY IDOL” competition this August-September!
OUR CELEBRITY JUDGES:
- Prize pack (see below) valued at over $1000

- Images featured in January issue of Chic Magazine
HOW IT WORKS:
- Enter your best image that totally represents your style and skill by midnight on August 25th 2012
- Our Celebrity judges will select 10 Contestants based on image quality and memorable impact
- The Contestants will be given weekly photo challenges and will get their images critiqued during 3 live webinars
- Live webinars (where contestants’ images will be critiqued) will be held every Monday in Sept. at 8 pm Central time
- The public will vote for their favorite photographer every Tues. in Sept.
- Contestants will be narrowed down by popular vote from 10 contestants to 5, then 3, then one winner
- Finalists will be announced on the blog, Facebook, and in our newsletter so be sure to subscribe to those to find out who made the cut
- The winner will be revealed during our Season Finale on Sept. 24th & will be crowned our newest Celebrity Photographer
