Contest again puts focus on Unicoi County photographers

From Staff Reports
The Unicoi County Chamber of Commerce is teaming up with The Erwin Record again this year to host the Apple Festival “Picture Perfect” photography contest.
The contest gives amateur photographers the opportunity to show off their skills in six different categories.
The categories are inanimate objects, people, animals, plants/flowers, landscapes and water scenes.
Contestants may enter one black and white photograph and one color photograph in each category. A panel of judges will award first-, second- and third-place ribbons in each category. A “Best of Show” ribbon will be selected from the first-place winners of each category.
The contest is restricted to amateur photographers only.
Entries must be an 8” x 10” print and fixed on a white 11” x 14” matte. Contestants should place their name, address, phone number and category on the back of each entry.
Entries submitted in photo frames or glass, or on a matte other than white will not be judged. All entries should be taken to the Unicoi County Chamber of Commerce, 100 S. Main Ave., or The Erwin Record, 218 Gay St., by Friday, Sept. 28.
The winning photographs will be displayed during the Apple Festival, on Oct. 5-6. All photographs and ribbons may be picked up at the Chamber the week after the Apple Festival.
“We are so excited to be a part of this contest this year,” Erwin Record Publisher Keith Whitson said last week. “There are so many talented photographers out there, and this is an excellent opportunity for them to show off their work in the community.”
