I know some of you are aware that I regularly give away cameras on Twitter. But this isn’t THAT kind of contest. This is a photo contest. You actually have to enter a photograph to be eligible to win!

It’s the Photofocus Winner Takes All Photo Contest 2012. It’s being hosted and administered by my friends at ViewBug and there are more than $10,000 worth of prizes at stake. We expect that number to grow throughout the year.

Unlike many photo contests you see advertised on the Internet, this contest does NOT require an entry fee. Nor is there any rights grab associated with entering. It’s as clean as a whistle and all you have to do to enter is click here. Good luck.
