Showcase reflections around you in your shots to participate in our ‘Reflections’ photo contest.

  • Contest begins June 27th, 2016 and ends July 17th, 2016
  • Winners announced July 21st, 2016

Photo: Reflection
Judge’s Feedback:
“This entry stood out because of its concept and brilliant execution.  An image in which the reflection is not from the main part of the photo but an area unseen and only visible through the reflection itself.  A great example of concept and composition as well as telling an interesting and incomplete story about the background and the location.” – Michael Pua, former CoinaPhoto contest winner.


“This photo creates such a great scene from such a small reflection.  I feel that I am seeing through the proverbial looking glass to a world that’s in focus but just slightly out of reach.” - Ellen Storey, CoinaPhoto team member.

Sunrise at Moraine Lake
‘Sunrise at Moraine Lake’ by Jeff Dannay 
“Beautiful scenery, composition and technically perfect exposure and balance in the photo.” – Michael

Cileunca Lake

‘Cileunca Lake’ by Dedi Erfiadi

“Breathtaking capture with the sky looking like it’s on fire. Great timing to get the sun perfectly centered and peeking through the trees as well.” - Michael 

We still have lots more in store for you. Enter our ongoing ‘Colours‘ photo contest or browse our market to get your artistic inspiration first.

How do I submit a photo I have already uploaded? The UI only allows for submitting photos by uploading a new one. Not very user friendly…

It still doesn’t show the deadline. I keep looking the page back and forth but can’t see the submission deadline.

Hi Solve, You can enter your existing photos to a new photo contest simply by clicking the ‘edit’ option on your photo and selecting additional category, in this case it would be ‘Reflections’. Let us know if this helps at all. Thanks.

Dear Hyder, Welcome to CoinaPhoto - we are ecstatic to have you on board. All instructions on how to enter a photo contest are listed in the blue and white infographic under the creative brief. To simplify things - simply upload a photo and select ‘Reflections’ as a category from the drop down menu before you submit your photo. Let us know if this is clear. Thanks.

Hi Amit, In order to submit an existing photo to a new photo contest, you don’t have to go the competition page. Please go the particular image in question uploaded by you and click the ‘edit’ option on it. After this, click the category drop down menu and select the option ‘Reflections’ and update. This is all you have to do. Hope this helps. Thanks.

Hello! The way I see it, for participating a contest for example “Reflections” I just have to click on the category ” Reflections” in “edit photo”, and it’s already in the contest just like that? Thank you!
