Students who are pursuing a career in photography may benefit from participating in extra-curricular activities, such as statewide and national competitions. These types of events allow future degree holders to use skills they are learning in the classroom, and put them into action by having their artwork judged by industry professionals.

Hot Shot Media has opened the application process for the second annual Snapshot Scholar photo contest, which will benefit photography students enrolled at an accredited college or university in California. Winners of this competition will be awarded up to $10,000 for their school's photography department and any extracurricular activities he or she is involved in.

Eligible participants include individuals aged 18 years and older who are enrolled in a photography or related undergraduate degree program. Competitors are asked to submit their own artwork through the group's website, and submissions must meet all size and quality requirements.

Non-students who are amateur photographers and residents of the state are also invited to compete. If their photos are selected, they will be awarded with a $1,000 cash prize.

Over the next eight years, the employment of photographers is expected to increase by 12 percent, and approximately 17,500 new jobs will be created nationwide, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
