This came into my inbox and I thought I would share it with Presenting Architecture.  It does involve registering at another portfolio site but coming from someone who runs a directory site, another link to your work is a good thing. The judges seem to be a well rounded and respected group of people to get your work in front of as well.  Basically, you join the site, pay $10 per image to enter and at the least you get another online portfolio.  The actual prizes are quite substancial.  Your Final Deadline is Tuesday, December 20th at Midnight.

Official website: http://www.artistswanted.org/exposure/index.php

Jurors: Stephen Walker, Susanne Miklas, Michael Shulman, Natasha Egan, Karen Irvine and Conor Risch.
