We’re already one week into the month and the photo contest is well under way. Just a reminder that the theme is Rogue Valley Summer, so make your photo say “summer” and make sure it is recognizable as the Rogue Valley.
Remember, there are some really fabulous prizes for the winners, including a jet boat trip with Rogue Jet Boat Adventures on the Rogue River. Send your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org and make certain they arrive before the end of the work day on August 30. A panel of judges will judge entries and they will award prizes to the top winners in Adult and Junior categories. Please limit your entries to a total of two.
Rogue Valley summer might be anything, but smoke may not make the best of scenes. Try to make them horizontals, if possible, and they could be chosen for the annual calendar produced by the Independent.
The adult category is 18 and older; the juniors are under 18. Color or black and white are acceptable. Make the file large for better printing if your camera has those settings.
In the past, the Independent has received some outstanding photos; perhaps yours will win the competition this time.
