Categories set for
TD photo contest
The Times Dispatch's 20th Summertime Photo Contest is underway. The deadline for entry is July 13.
This year, categories have been set for the contest, and those entering photos are asked to designate which category they want their photo to be judged in. Photographers are
reminded that the judges generally prefer candid photos rather than posed photos.
Categories will be as follows: Summer Travels, Summer Snacks, Sand & Surf, People & Pets, Fun & Games, Summer Bonding, Summer Rides, Wet & Wild (swimming pool, sprinklers, etc.); All Creatures (animals only), Scenes of Summer (landscape/scenery photography), Expressions of Summer (photos that focus more on a person's face or expression).
Photographers are limited to five entries in the contest. Those entering the contest are asked to write name, address, telephone number and category being entered on the back of the photo with a non-smearing ink pen or attach a note with tape.
Individuals are also asked to identify the scene and/or people in the photo and give a brief description of where they are and what they are doing.
Those who wish to have their photos returned should send a self-addressed, stamped envelope with the entry. Photos can be picked up at The TD office after the winners are announced.
Winning entries will be published in The TD.
Photos can be mailed to P.O. Box 389, Walnut Ridge, AR 72476; dropped off at the office at 225 West Main Street in Walnut Ridge or e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
