Love your place photo contest rules

August 18 T loveyourplace

Welcome to the Shelburne News Love Your Place Photo Contest sponsored by Folino’s Pizza! We’re looking for your best photography skills, as you explore Shelburne, to feature in our paper. On a bi-weekly basis, we will be announcing a photography assignment in our newspaper and on our Facebook page for a chance to have your image published and to win a $25 gift certificate to Folino’s. For each contest, there will be a different photo assignment (e.g. Shelburne Farms, dogs, etc.)

To participate, submit an original photo based on the identified theme and post on the Shelburne News Facebook page with the #ShelburneNewsLoveYourPlace. You MUST like both the Shelburne News page and the Folino’s page to be eligible. Please include a caption for your photo as well. Contest opens every other Thursday with a special photography assignment. Entries must be received by 11:59pm EST the Sunday after the contest assignment has been announced. The top two photographs as judged by the Editor at Shelburne News and Folino’s will be posted on the Shelburne News Facebook page the Monday following the deadline. Voting will last for one day, ending at Monday at midnight. The winner will be announced in that Thursday’s edition of the Shelburne News.

The winner will be announced the following Thursday in that week’s paper and on our Facebook page. A panel of judges will choose winners based on the image that best captures that week’s assignment. We prefer photos that are 300dpi for print, but will accept all photos.
