We’ve decided to try and maintain a contest page on the site. We’ll do our best to provide as many contests as we can find that may be of interest to the readers. We’d also like you to send us suggestions to this email address: Enticing.the.Light@gmail.com we’d like to get lots of links from all over the world if possible.
So warm up those cameras and go win some stuff. If you do win a contest, we’d love to hear about it and share the photo with congrats to everyone who come here. So make sure you share your winning shots!
Important Note: Information on each contest has been taken directly from the site of the link. ETL makes no editorial comments on any of the contests. Make sure you read the rules for any contest you enter. I’ve read some that strip you of your rights to the photos submitted even if you never win anything. We certainly would not want your photos running in a big (or small) advertising campaign without you being paid for your efforts.
Disclaimer: ETL, it’s editors, owners and it’s contributors do not represent any of these sites and are not responsible for any use of the photos submitted. Entrants submit photos completely at their own risk and discretion. ETL does not review the rules of each contest nor does it endorse any of contest sites listed on this site.
