This is from Chase Jarvis' bio.
"As a photographic master, Chase has won numerous awards from Prix de la Photographie de Paris, The Advertising Photographers of America, The International Photography Awards, and numerous photographic trade magazine throughout the world. Photo District News (PDN) Magazine called Chase one of the top 30 most influential photographers of the past decade."
So here's 3 awards... maybe look up more award winning photographers, see what they won, then you can trace that back to contests?
