The Steilacoom Historical Museum Association (SHMA) is proud to announce another great photo contest! This is your time to shine and show off your great photography skills as well as showcase our wonderful town of Steilacoom.
SHMA is planning to publish and sell a 2012 calendar featuring scenes of Steilacoom, and we are looking for your best shots! You have from now until June 30, 2011, to email us up to four (4) pictures that capture the character, landmarks and spirit of Steilacoom. The pictures need not be new, but should be current. We are looking to feature all four seasons, and yes, there ARE four seasons… not just “rain” and “no rain”!
But wait, there’s more! You can help judge the pictures. This will assist us in deciding which ones will be featured in the calendar. We will be displaying all of the submitted pictures at SHMA’s Facebook page. You will have a chance to cast your vote by “liking” the picture in the Facebook photo album. But, if you’re not on Facebook, and not a “fan” of the “Steilacoom Historical Museum Association”, you won’t be able to see the pictures and vote. So please join if you have not already done so. We’d love for you to be a “fan” of SHMA!
To enter the contest, please reply to this email (or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org), and attach four of your favorite pictures. No repeats from previous year’s contests please. Make sure the digital photo resolution/size is as large as possible (1MB+). By submitting pictures, you agree to grant unconditional copyright release to SHMA for use as we see fit. That is, you still own the copyright to the picture, but you are allowing SHMA to use it in a way we deem fit, like making and selling calendars, notecards, etc. In the spirit of making this contest more manageable, we will no longer accept mailed, printed pictures – only digital, emailed pictures will be accepted. Professional photographers are certainly welcome!
So, SNAP TO IT! Look through your pictures and send us up to four of your favorites, or get out there and capture a new spring or summer scene now! Remember: You must enter by June 30th so that you won’t miss the chance to display your photography skills in “thousands” of homes, near and far!
