Henderson Chamber of Commerce to present local photo contest
The Henderson Chamber of Commerce will be presenting the 1st (and hopefully annual) Images of Henderson Photo Contest.
Submissions for the 2012 contest are currently being accepted with the deadline for entries slated for Friday, August 1, 2012.
Entries can be submitted at the Henderson Independent newspaper or at Evolution Media either digitally or with the original photograph. E-mail photos can be submitted to email@example.com
The contest is free to enter and open to both amateur and professional photographers. All submissions must adhere to the following guidelines:
• Photographs must be taken in Henderson or the surrounding area.
• Photographs will be judged in one of six categories that represent Henderson:
• Photographers may submit up to a total of ten photographs with a maximum of three per category.
• Past and present photographs are eligible.
• All entries submitted must be the original work of the submitting photographer.
• Once submitted, photos become the property of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce and may be used in future promotional publications either for Henderson or for the photo contest itself.
• Contest organizers reserve the right to re-categorize or disqualify any entrant.
• If there are identifiable people in a photograph taken in a non- public space, it is the responsibility of the photographer to obtain written permission to use the photo.
• All decisions will be final.
• The Henderson Chamber of Commerce is not responsible for lost entries.
• Each photo entry must include a submission outlining the pho- tographer’s name, address, phone number or e-mail address and age (if under 18).
• A first, second and third place winner may be chosen for each category as well as an overall winner. A “Henderson’s Choice” award may also be given based on votes during the 2012 Hender- son Sauerkraut Days.
• Contest winners will have their artwork displayed during Heritage Days.
• Entries will be judged on subject matter, composition, clarity, lighting, depth of field, artistry, degree of difficulty, technical excellence and overall impact.
