SeniorInspire 30 Senior Photographers to Watch in 2017

SeniorInspire is excited to announce our 50 TO FOLLOW image contest starting right now!

You all worked hard in 2018 and with the year coming to a close, we want to recognize 50 Senior Photographers to Follow in 2019!

This year we’ll be judging two categories: Girl Senior Photos and Guy Senior Photos! There will be 40 winning images chosen in the girls category and 10 in the guys. If someone has a winning image in both categories, they’ll be elevated to ROCKSTAR STATUS which will open up spots for two more images! More spots, more winners!

We’ll be accepting contest entries through February 4th and announcing the winners in an Instagram slow reveal all day on February 23rd and 24th (roughly one per hour)! We’ll also be featuring the winning images on our website with links back to your own website. And any photographers who win in both categories will achieve ROCKSTAR STATUS and be featured on a special page of our website.

Please carefully read through the rules below before submitting.


The contest will run thru Midnight, CST on February 4th. Winners will be featured around the clock on the SeniorInspire Instagram page on February 23rd and 24th.
