21 Cash Awards for Ozone Zone medal winners / Grand Prix winner.

This is contest like no others! A Salon that SHARES its Entry Fees with winners!
Our Growing Awards plan lets you win more when more photographers join the contest. More entries mean tougher competition, but also BIGGER PRIZES! Up to massive  $15,000 Grand Prix, up to $30,000 in total cash prizes, and more!
All entries are calculated to give maximum advantage to our winners.

Additional Awards may be added, depending on number of sponsors and entries.

Cash awards are calculated in Canadian Dollars and are for the Grand Prix winner and Ozone Zone medal winners.

It is possible for a single photographer to win in more than one category.


Growing Prize Value Calculation:

Number of entries will be posted on this site right after the entry closing date, adding to excitement of this unique contest.
Cash awards start at the VERY LOW level of only 300 entries.

A very modest entry fee gets you up to 4 images entered in a single category.
Each group of up to 4 images is counted as a single entry for this calculation purpose. If for example you enter 2 image sets (of up to 4 photos per set, totaling in 8 photos) to any 2 categories, it will count as two entries to our Salon.

It is easy to see our minimum level of 300 entries is very easy to reach (last year we had over 2,000 entries), making you win real cash awards! Many international contests charge much higher entry fees, count their entries in thousands – but you rarely see any cash prizes, just diplomas and medals. Competitions offering any cash awards have usually MUCH higher entry fees, often $30 or more per single photo!

300 to 500 entries:
Grand Prix $250
Gold $150
Silver $50
Bronze $25

501 to 1000 entries:
Grand Prix $400
Gold $250

Bronze $50
