Getting Started with Award and Submission

Thanks for registering with Light and Composition. As a registered photographer you have the opportunity to obtain the maximum exposure from our massive photographic network! Not only you can submit photographs to the award, but it also gives you the opportunity to get into the world’s top 100 photographers list. There are few simple steps that you can follow to get started with the award.

If you are already logged in, move to Step 3 for submitting your photographs and participating in the award.

Step 1: Login to Your Dashboard

1. The easiest way to get all your access is your dashboard.
To get into your dashboard, you can simple login by using the “Dashboard” link or user icon from the top right of our website.

Login Credentials

However, if you haven’t received the login credentials email, we strongly suggest you to contact with our 24/7 support.

Step 3: Navigate to the Award Section

1. Once logged in to your dashboard, you can navigate to the award section, which gives you the direct access to Add / Modify Photographer’s Profile, Submit your photographs Jury, and Selected Photographs Submission.

Please note, you can only get access to those pages when you are an active Light & Composition registered photographer, or already renewed the award submission renewal.

Navigating Award Section

2. Another easiest way to navigate to Award is the footer of our website, which is same for every single page, where you can also find all other sections of our Light & Composition.

Step 4: Create / Update Your Photographer’s Profile

1. Please visit the “Photographer’s Profile Page” and create / update your profile.

If you already submitted your photographer’s profile, or you are an old registered photographer, who has renewed the award submission then move to the Step 5, as you only need to fill up your photographer’s profile once, unless you want to add your latest achievements or your up-to-day information.

Navigate to Photographer's Profile

2. Please follow all the instructions given in the photographer’s profile page, and fill it up with correct up-to-date genuine information. Please notice the biography writing style, as if Light & Composition is presenting you to the vast audience (write in the Third person, not First person). Also make sure you don’t leave any of the field empty.

Make sure you immediately follow Step 5, after completing Step 4, as your profile will not get approved if you do not submit any photographs to jury.
