ourview: Its photo time in Farragut


Yes, folks, it is photo time in Farragut.

We’re happy to announce that farragutpress is now accepting entries to its annual Photo & Imaging Contest. Winning photographs will be published in the June 26 farragutpress Photo & Imaging Contest & Showcase section. Cash prizes and award certificates will be awarded for grand, first, second and third places. Deadline for entries is 4 p.m., Wednesday, June 11 — a little more than a month away.

Enter your photos in any of the following categories: My Town, Action/Sports, Animals, Candid/Humor, Creative/FineArt, Inspirational, Landscape, Nature, People/Portraits, Photo-journalism, Summer Adventure or Travel.

Before you enter, please familiarize yourself with these contest rules: Contest is open to amateurs only. Any amateur may enter, whether a subscriber or not.

Entries must be delivered to the farragutpress office, 11863 Kingston Pike, Knoxville, TN 37934, by 4 p.m., Wednesday, June 11, and are limited to two entries per contestant per category. Winners may be required to sign and return an affidavit of compliance, grant of rights and release within seven days of notification, or alternate winners will be selected.

We will accept unmounted, unmatted and unframed prints in sizes from 4x6 to 11x14. No slides will be accepted. All prints must be labeled with the name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address (if available).

A copy of any necessary releases in connection with the photos must be included. We strongly suggest that duplicates, not original copies, of your work be sent. Entries will not be returned. So do not include return envelopes or postage.

The newspaper and its staff cannot assume

responsibility for lost entries. By entering this

contest, you represent that your photographs are your original work and you have all necessary rights, including model releases, to enter them in the farragutpress Amateur Photography Contest, to grant farragutpress the publication and use rights noted below. Entries must not have been previously published in any major media, including book, magazine, postcard or calendar. All images entered remain exclusive property of the contestant, with the following exceptions: farragutpress reserves the right to publish any or all entries, as well as your name in farragutpress publications (in print, electronic and any other present or future media in which it is or may be

published) and the farragutpress Web site without

further compensation.

We also reserve the right to use these images as we see fit to promote future farragutpress Amateur Photography Contests. Winners must be able to provide technical information about how the winning photograph was made, including camera, lens, film used (digital ISO if applicable), as well as exposure data, if possible.

Employees of farragutpress and Republic Newspapers, Inc., and their family members are ineligible to enter.

Cash prizes: Grand Prize: $75; First Prize $50; Second Prize: $25; Third Prize: $10. Each winner also will receive Regal Cinema passes.
