July 2017 PhD contest is now OVER PEOPLE!

Our July 2017 PhD competition is now OVER PEOPLE! Congrats to Greg Thomason for taking the win and Karen Richard for picking up the randomizer prize!

The winner of the PhD in photography contest each month gets to spend 2 days of their choice hangin & shabang'in with me in the NY studio or any other venue where I'll be for a few days. You'll be immersed full bore into the Peter Hurley philosophy of portraiture and afterwards you'll earn your PhD(Peter Hurley Direction) in photography! Including a badge of honor on Headshot Crew by being labeled as a PhD.

Winners also receive a free year on Headshot Crew and both my DVD's and a personalized signed copy of my book "The Headshot!" as well as getting a headshot taken by yours truly. Enter below by submitting the best headshot you've ever taken and your chance at a killer time Shabang'in NYC style with me! One winner will be chosen each month and one other random prize winner will be chosen using our randomizer and they will get their choice of either of my tutorials(The Art Behind The Headshot Tutorial or Illuminating the face), so don't look at the competition and shy away from this. The critique of all the work submitted is valuable for the entire group and each one of you have a chance to win something!

Once you are chosen you have a year to figure out a time period when you can get your butt to NYC and hang with me in the NY studio or find me on the road somewhere and hang with me. Winners are usually chosen on the first Tuesday of each month during our weekly Headshot Crew CrewCast unless otherwise noted.

In order to be considered you must be a member of the Headshot Crew Protégé coaching group, so get your butt in here and submit a killer shot for this sucker. Here's the link to register: https://headshotcrew.com/user/register

Only 1 submission per person per month. Enter every month with a new submission of your choice. Once an image has been submitted it can't be used in a subsequent month. All images must be submitted in color.

Get a submission in there and we'll see you on one of our weekly CrewCast's soon!

I'm not trying to offend anyone and as I myself don't know the answer, plus its not stated in the terms of entering PhD I am just putting out a general question. Can one enter a HSOTW winner for PhD?

Norman Jaillet's picture
BFAS

yes

Greg Thomason's picture
Associate

Anthony, yes you can. The PHD should be the best headshot you have to enter, regardless of when it was made. HSOTW winners probably fit that category.

Yep. I won my PhD with HSOW winner.

Pete Templin's picture
BFAS

Yes. Remember that HSOW is limited to stuff you shot in the past week ("ish"). PhD is open to any shot you've taken (except any shot you've submitted to PhD previously).

Robert de Wit's picture

I always thought it needed to be taken within the month of the competition. In this case, within Jul 2017.

Ryan Parker's picture
Mentor

Nope! Submit your best shot ever. (that hasn't been submitted before).
