Worth 1,000 words: New Times Media Group's 18th annual photo contest


New Times Media Group’s 18th annual photo contest is rapidly approaching with the “Winning Images” issue hitting stands on Nov. 7. The deadline for entries in the contest is Oct. 7 by 5 p.m. at the New Times office, 1010 Marsh St., in SLO, or the Sun office, 2540 Skyway Drive, Santa Maria. A completed entry form must be attached to the back of each entry.

The contest includes competitions for adults and those ages 18 and under. For the adult contest, the categories include: People, Architecture, Land/Seascape, Animals, Flora, Travel, and Open. Submitted prints can be between 5 by 7 inches and 11 by 14 inches and must be mounted on a thick, 11-by-14-inch black or white board without a mat. No submissions from previous years can be included, and $5 cash, check, or money order made out to New Times must be included for registration.

All photographs must be originals and must have been taken in either SLO or Santa Barbara counties, except for entries in the Travel category. Entry in the contest will constitute permission to use the images in the paper, online, and for display. All entrants also must submit a high-quality digital file of their image to or on a CD attached to their entry. Judges also reserve the right to reassign categories for mislabeled or misfiled photos at their discretion.

The 18 and under competition is an “Open” category, but the photos must have been taken in SLO or Santa Barbara counties. Entrants must be 18 or younger as of Oct. 7 and enrolled in a school that is not a college. All other rules for the adult category apply.
