Photo tips for entrants: Maker of the Year 2021
Wood Review’s Maker of the Year, presented by Carbatec, is open for entry with over $20,000 in cash and prizes to be won. Taking part in competitions can raise your profile, let others enjoy your work, and give you the opportunity and motivation to develop new designs and techniques!
Entry is simple, upload 5 images to www.woodreview.com.au/moty/moty2021
To show your work to best effect you need good photos. Here are a few tips:
1. Check your settings
If your photos are too lo-res we can’t share or print them.
2. Show us around
Upload full views and close-ups of details.
3. Look behind
Watch out for distracting backgrounds and objects. Coloured walls and surrounds can sometimes reflect in polished surfaces.
4. Light and focus
Use a tripod if you can, avoid backlighting, and remember we want to see the wood grain too.
5. Tell us your story
Don’t forget to tell us about your design inspiration, and the materials and techniques used.
See awards and prizes on offer here. Our Overall Maker of the Year will be chosen from Australian and New Zealand entries, however this year we’ve opened the competition up to entrants around the world with a dedicated World category.
