ourview: photo time again ...


It’s that time again! farragutpress is now accepting entries to its annual and slightly revised Digital Photo & Imaging Contest.

The key word is digital. With the influx of digital cameras and the reduction or elimination of film cameras, we’ve decided to streamline the contest and accept only digital files as entries.

Hopefully, this will increase the number of entrants and make participation nearly effortless.

Cash prizes and award certificates will be awarded for grand, first, second and third places. Deadline for entries is 4 p.m., Thursday, June 16.


Enter your photos in any of the following categories: My Town; Action/Sports; Animals; Candid/Humor; Creative/Fine Art; Inspirational; Landscape; Nature; People/Portraits; Photojournalism; Summer Adventure or Travel and a new category, My funniest home photo.

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 received at farragutpress by 4 p.m., Thursday, June 16, and are limited to two entries per contestant per category. Entries must be high-resolution digital images. No prints or low resolution, cell phone-type photos will be accepted.

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.

A copy of any necessary releases in connection with the photos must be included.

The newspaper and its staff cannot assume responsibility for lost or undelivered 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, 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: $50; First Prize $35; Second Prize: $25; Third Prize: $10. Each winner also will receive Regal Cinema passes. Winning photographers’ photographs will be published later this month in farragutpress.
