I'm a huge fan of photographic contests because first, they're fun to do and second, they give you a chance to fine tune your skills. While not every image you might enter was captured with a contest in mind, you tend to shoot just a differently when hoping to get a little well-deserved recognition for your skill set. You take a little more time; analyze the final image more and most important of all, unleash more of your creative spirit.
This week Tamron announced the launch of their "My Travel Exhibit" photo contest and your opportunity to win one of three outstanding Tamron lenses. Click on any of the three lenses for more information.

And, here's a perfect example of why I enjoy Tamron's support for the industry so much. The don't just launch an enter a picture photo contest, but give you the chance to build your own gallery.
