In Feb. 2 Issue
These days, photographers are out in full force snapping away with their digital cameras ready to show their vision of the world through their pictures.
The Times Journal wants to see your talent as photographers and share your pictures with FabFoto, our first-ever photography contest.
The contest is open to all residents of Kentucky age 16 or older. We have chosen a theme for each month's photo entries starting in February with Shadows.
Observe, imagine, and be creative in how you interpret the theme.
Send us your stunning photographs with an informative caption, your name, age, and a contact phone number. Captions should be 100 words or less.
Photographs must have been taken within two years before the date of entry. Minor editing of photos is acceptable.
All we ask is that you keep it clean. If you wouldn't want your grandma to see it, then we shouldn't see it either.
Photos will be critiqued on photographic and artistic quality by judges to choose first, second, and third place winners monthly.
Winners will be published in the paper and displayed at various locations in the area.
Each first place monthly winner will compete at the end of the year to receive first, second and third place awards.
The first place winner will receive a 16 x 20 framed canvas print of their prize photo, second place will receive an 11 x 14 framed canvas print, and third place will receive an 8 x 10 canvas gallery wrap for your submission.
Entries may be in digital or print format. Digital files should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Printed photos may be submitted at our office at 120 Wilson St. in Russell Springs or mailed to: PO Box 190, Russell Springs, KY 42642.
Submissions are limited to five per person each month. The same person will be eligible to be chosen as 1st place winner three times during the year long contest.
