Those taking photos should consider entering the Amateur Photography Contest. There are two divisions: Division I for those age 18 and older and Division II for those 17 and under. All photographers must be amateurs. Individuals are limited to two entries, which must be taken during the 2017 fest.
Photographers have until September 22, 2017 to submit an entry. To be considered in the photo contest, each entry must be submitted as an 8×10 landscape photo with its digital photo sent to: Tfowler@centralaroostook.com. The photographer’s name and title of the photo must be written on the back of the hard copy photograph. Digital files are required, so the photos can be considered for the annual COMBF calendar. Good photo resolution is needed for the calendar. The preferred file size file should be 1 megapixel or larger in size in order to provide the best resolution for the calendar.
Entries will be judged on composition and originality. Prizes will be awarded in each division:
First Place – $50.00
Second Place – $25.00
Third Place – $15.00
