The Best Photo Contest in the Galaxy
We teased you last month about our upcoming Addison Airport photo contest. Well the waiting’s over.
It’s time to start those cameras snapping and sending along your favorites shots to our judges in their search for the best of the best.
The airport photo contest is open to anyone with an original still photo of an aircraft, a person, an event, or anything tied to aviation and Addison Airport. The choices are yours.
Enter as many photos as you wish, as long as they’re your own work. Winning photos will be eligible for publication on the airport blog as well as other prominent locations around ADS. No Photoshop images please. The only hint we’ll offer is that photos with people doing something are usually a little more interesting than a shot of a static airplane for instance. But that’s not meant to limit you … it’s only a suggestion.
Judges will select first, second, and third-place winners in two categories, adult and youth (17 years old or younger). Individuals may enter only one category, adult or youth. Winners receive a nifty ADS Photo Contest certificate and a gift card (for an amount commensurate with finishing position) for use at a number of local Addison restaurants.
E-mail your entries individually as attached jpeg files to our contest coordinator, Rob Mark, at email@example.com. The subject line should read: ADS photo contest (Adult or Student).
With each e-mail entry, include your full name, e-mail address, contact phone number, and the city where you live. You don’t need to be an Addison resident to enter either. If you’re a student, tell us the name of your school. Our judges will not consider entries submitted without this information. In addition to your contact information, tell us a little bit about your photo. When did you take it and what story does it tell? If it’s a shot of a person, tell us who we’re looking at and how you came to take the photo. BTW, entries will not be returned.
All photos must arrive in the coordinator’s inbox no later than midnight May 1, 2015. Entries arriving after the deadline will not be considered. E-mail your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good luck. Now get out there and start snapping, or clicking or whatever noise it is that digital cameras make these days.
