Fourth of July Photo Contest starts today

Jason Werling
May 10, 2012

As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, the annual photo contest will be going digital this year. 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 at 11:59 p.m. 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.

   1.  The 4th of July Photography Show is open to amateur photographers only.
 An amateur photographer is defined as anyone who does not make more
 than one-half his/her yearly salary from taking and selling photographs.
   2.  The contest consists of 5 categories: “PEOPLE, PLACES, NATURE,
 NATIONAL PRIDE” and SANDUSKY-AREA PARKS.
   3.  All categories will be voted on at sanduskyregister.com. Best of Show will be the photo that receives the most votes overall. First, second and third place winners in each category will be published in the July 8 Sunday Showcase in the Sandusky Register.
   4.  Photographs entered in previous Fourth of July contests are not eligible.
