Stumbled upon this site last night and I'm loving it so far !

Just joined this site last night, and I gotta say I'm loving it so far! Photography has been a true passion of mine, I'm no professional, barely even an amateur ( what's below amateur hehe) but this site doesn't make me feel insecure or intimidated by lack of professional equipment, knowledge, or editing software in fact quite the contrary. Anyone can join and enter contests regardless of level, and I really think that's great. It offers information for beginners, wanting to learn more, and many different contests, to test all the different aspects of photography. I think it's a great site for beginners and professionals alike. I feel the contest categories are great to inspire beginners to go out and try something they may not have considered! From my experience so far I give this site 5 stars ! I would highly recommend to photographers of all walks and fans of photography alike .

Brings my passion to life

I started to love photography a couple years back and I had made an Instagram to see if people would be interested, but only family and people at my school knew about so it wasn’t good data. Then I came on here and even without a membership it has been a great learning experience and I have been able to see what people really do enjoy and look at other creators work. No one at school knows or has seen this profile and it doesn’t have my name in the profile. So I get amazing data on who actually likes my photography. Overall this app has brought my passion to life and be a great thing for me as a growing photographer.

I love View Bug. It is far better than most other online photo contests.

These photo contests don’t rely on the Chemical addiction we all have to receiving “likes”. You can get them and give them but it isn’t what decides the winner or the amount of exposer you get. Some think it isn’t right that you must purchase an account to participate in more contest, but the contests are fair with actual judges. I feel that paying for the member is ship far better than the in app purchases other sights have that make even one “free” challenge actually cost $50 bucks. Not being able to get online for a week doesn’t lessen your chances of recognition or even a win.
The app really does need some work. There are things that can only be done online. That makes it hard to run a challenge or see 100% of the available features. However I love the being a member of ViewBug.
