I was having trouble generating traffic to a photo contest I was running on my new socially green travel start-up, www.KutoaTravel.com. I invested in three months of Featured Listings with www.photographycompetitions.net, and that listing single-handedly drove over ten times more traffic to our site than any other source – including Facebook, LinkedIn, and two other photo contest directories. We suddenly had a flood of entries, and all of them listed www.photographycompetitions.net as the place they find out about our contest. We will definitely come back to run our next contest.

This is the first year that The Shutterbug Award has opened an international category. The results from using Photographycompetitions.net have been outstanding. Your site is at the top of our Traffic Sources at 22% of all visits. Sending through Analytic reports to our sponsors is a joy. They can see that their sponsorship of our event is getting the attention they deserve for backing us.
Thank you. Marc Burlace – Shutterbug 2011 Coordinator.
I have been organizing Photo of the Year for the past nine years and in that time we have explored a wide array of strategies for generating traffic to our website and exposure for our photography contest. Posting our contest on photographycompetitions.net has proven to be one of the most effective tools we have ever used and referrals from their site account for nearly a quarter of all traffic to our site. Thank you photographycompetitions.net for your valuable role in boosting exposure for our contest!

Photographycompetitions.net is our top referrer, delivering almost double the traffic of our 2nd largest referrer. The Worldwide Photography Gala Awards has been working with PCN since our inception around 18 months ago. We have also worked with a number of other websites, but we have found the acquisition costs through PCN for an entrant to be around 70% lower than our 2nd largest referrer. The success we have achieved with The Worldwide Photography Gala Awards would have been almost impossible without our partnership with PhotographyCompetitions.net, not to mention the personal and expert advertising advice we receive from them.

A quick note to thank you for featuring the Renaissance Photography competition on your site. This competition raises money for breast cancer and thanks to your site (where 36% of our hits came from)we had 3,700 entries from 78 countries and raised £22,000 for breast cancer. Thanks for your support and for a great site. Best regards, Fiona, www.renaissancephotography.org
Photo Travel Review Magazine has benefited greatly from Photography Competitions. Since associating with your site, our number of submissions for our Travel Photo of the Year Competition are ten times what they were before. It should be noted as well that since the link was added to your site, we have seen our overall web traffic double! We highly commend your site and advise others to participate. Thank you for what you are doing. Best regards.”

Since we started listing our Photographic competitions on PCN we have found a new source of Competition entries and our members now come from all parts of the globe and this is a big thanks to PCN. It is refreshing to see our competitions listed on PCN and we achieve new entries to our photo competitions and new members on a daily basis. I would recommend anyone in using PCN they won’t be disappointed. A big thanks to PCN from all at Pictures2win” Yours,

Having our contest listed on the Photography Competitions Network has had a significant impact for us. Roughly a third of our entrants came via PCN”
