Picture this! We're looking for the next Ansel or Annie
Original post made by Gina Channell-Allen, president of the Pleasanton Weekly, on Aug 16, 2013
The contest is open to anyone and everyone who lives, works, or attends school in Pleasanton, San Ramon, Danville, Alamo or Blackhawk.
Show us people, charm us with pets and animals, or dazzle us with photos of the Tri-Valley. The winners of the three categories from both the Youth (16 years and younger as of Sept. 30, 2013) and Adult divisions will get to enjoy prizes and some artistic fame.
Digital photos only will be accepted. Submissions must be in jpeg format, at least 1MB and no larger than 3MB in size, and submitted to Pleasanton Weekly by Sept. 27, 2013, along with an entry form and entry fee for each submission. Entry fee is $15 for adults and $5 for youths. The photographs must have been taken in the past five years, and we frown on plagiarism so make sure they're your own personal masterpieces!
Submissions will be judged by three local professional photographers: Sue Evans of [Web Link Photography by Sue Evans]; Gina Reuschel-Coomber of [Web Link Fireboxgirl Photography]; and Christina Gray of [Web Link Bella Luna Studios].
Winners will be notified by Oct. 18 and invited to a reception celebrating their achievements.
For more information or an entry form, see the [Web Link webpage].
Sponsors for the contest are [Web Link Richard's Arts and Crafts] in Livermore and Alamo, and [Web Link The Frame Company and Art Gallery] in Dublin.
