SHOW OFF YOUR BAD SELF: PHOTO COMPETITION FOR THE AGES

Keen amateur? Radiologist-turned-professional? Commercial failure? Test your photographic chops and submit your work to the Communication Arts Photography Annual. They accept any photo taken or published between March 2014 and March 2015, and they've even recently added a student entry section for all those budding fresh-faced collegiate photographers. 

I don't know why they have ?uestlove in their promotional advertisement but I'm not gonna lie, it makes me that much more invested in the competition. You can check out the previous entries and winners on their site to give you a little taste of the kind of work they usually get, though unfortunately you have to pay for a subscription to see the photos in any detail. But you can just do what I did and enlarge the page until the photos become a hot pixelated mess – it's not elegant, but it works. I bet the panel of highly acclaimed photography judges would be horrified.
