The LaRue County Herald News’ annual photo contest is underway.
For the second year, we are accepting only digital photos. Scanned photos do not have the quality of digital – so it’s not fair to those entries. We apologize if this inconveniences anyone.
All entries should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org – the same address used in previous contests. You can bring digital photos on a CD or thumb drive to our office at 40 Shawnee Drive, Hodgenville.
Four categories are offered: Nature, People, Lincoln heritage and Other.
Nature includes animals, insects and landscapes; People includes portraits, posed or non-posed; Lincoln heritage is a broad category encompassing anything related to our favorite President; and Other is for anything that doesn’t quite fit the other categories.
There is a separate category for youth – those photographers 16 and under. The entry should include the photographer’s age to be considered in the contest.
A sample of winning entries will be published in a special section in August.
Remember: The higher quality of the photo, the better its chance of being a winner.
Judges reserve the right to include all first-tier photos in the Honorable Mention category which is not limited to a certain number. Decisions of the judges will be final.
