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 2015 fest.
Photographers have until September 21, 2015 to submit an entry. Entries must be submitted as 8x10s, with the photographer’s name and title of the photo on the back. Digital files for the submitted photos must be available for the winning photos, so they can considered for the annual COMBF calendar. The preferred file resolution should be at least 3300 X 2550 pixels and 300 dpi. In other words, the file should be 1 meg or larger in size.
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
