More information about the photo contest (from the January/February 2012 issue’s NEWS AND VIEWS):
Enter Our 2012 Photo Contest
Our 2012 Photo Contest has three categories: Railroads & Trolleys (any image that contains subjects related to rails, trains or trolleys), Wilderness (showing what wild is and means to the photographer) and Cityscape (a skyline, closeup or any other view of a city or town).
TAll images must show a Pennsylvania subject or scene (no other states). I invite you to look through your photos and see what images you have that could match one of these categories. Or, go out and take some new images; then, enter our contest. The postmark deadline for entry is April 15.
If you have other photos that don’t suit these categories, feel free to send those noncontest images for our editor’s consideration with your entry. Please have them segregated so that it is clear which photographs are your entries. All submitted photos should be as both prints and files on your disk. You can put all of your submissions (contest and noncontest) on the same disk (CD or DVD).
Here’s a link to a website with many different photo contests that you can enter. They have listed ours, and they also make sure to be clear in regard to copyright (ownership) and usage rights (reproduction permission). BEFORE entering any photo contest, I suggest you review the contest sponsor’s policy on both, and make sure that you agree with whatever rights/ownership they are assuming upon your entry. Sometimes the act of entering a photo contest gives the contest organizers unlimited use of your image, with or without proper credit. So, be careful.
