As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, the annual photo contest will be going digital this year. In years past we have had a display at the Stars & Stripes Festival in downtown Sandusky.
As of today, you can start sending in submissions to the various category e-mail addresses. Entries are limited to two entries per person per category. A listing of the rules and guidelines can be found below. The deadline for online submissions will be Sunday, June 3. That gives you three weeks to get your photos taken and submitted. If you already have photos, then you have won half the battle.
Voting for the winners will be done by all of you at sanduskyregister.com and will open on Sunday, June 10 at midnight.
Good luck to all of you and I look forward to your entries.
