SCC Earth Day photography contest now accepting entries
By Allison Horseman, Cindy Clouse
Somerset, KY - Participants in the Somerset Community College (SCC) Earth Day photography contest will only have to walk out the back door of their home to find inspiration for this year's event.
The 2017 theme, "Birds & Friends," will have entrants focus on area birds and other back yard animals as the subject of their photos.
And, while the subjects may be small, the amount of cash for the winning photographs is not. The grand prize for the "Nash Black Photography Awards" is $100, double the usual prize money. Increased cash awards will also be presented for second place at $50; third place at $25; and fourth place at $15. Honorable mention certificates will also be given.
The college's Fruit of the Lens photography club sponsors the contest with funding support from SCC's PRIDE club.
The annual photography awards honor Irene Black and Ford Nashett, according to club president Justin Flugum. The Russell County couple, who write under the pen name "Nash Black," are founding members of the photography club.
Winners will be notified and recognized at the SCC/East Kentucky PRIDE Earth Day Celebration on Sunday, April 23 from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. (ET) on the SCC Somerset Campus, located at 808 Monticello Street in Somerset. There is no admission charge for the Earth Day Celebration, which is open to the public.
Flugum encouraged everyone to enter and noted that the competition "gives amateur photographers an excellent platform to showcase their talents."
How to enter:
Those entering may submit up to three images and there is no age limit. Submissions are being accepted until Sunday, April 16 at 11:59 p.m. There is no charge for entering the photography contest.
Each submission needs to be approximately one megabyte (1 MB) in size, and contain no watermarks, names or time stamps. Photos submitted by professional photographers will be disqualified as will any images manipulated in programs such as Photoshop. (Normal image adjustments are perfectly acceptable).
Email your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org. Subject line for each entry should be "Spring Photo Contest" and the email should contain a name for the photo and contact information of the photographer.
