Photo Contest Monthly Themes

BetterPhoto's photo contest is the most fun, most objective, and most inspiring photography contest on the Web.

And the incredible photo contest winners will inspire you to pick up your camera and head out photographing!

Each month, several categories will be a specific, new twist on an old theme. Other themes will remain more general.
