Free Copy of Portrait Professional 8 is hosting a contest with copies of Portrait Professional 8 as the prize. It’s almost three separate contests in one: to enter, you just have to do one of the following.

  • Submit a color portrait with the same guidelines.
  • Send a portrait tip to

The contest closes to submission on September 4th. You can check out the submissions so far in the competition’s Flickr pool. There are already some impressive pieces up, though submissions seem heavily weighted to the black and white so far.
