Photo contest seeks entries

The Erwin Record and the Unicoi County Chamber
of Commerce once again invited amateur photographers
to show off their “picture perfect” photos during
the Unicoi County Apple Festival.
Again this year, the Record and the Chamber will
join forces to sponsor 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 local photographers 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. 27.
The winning photographs will be displayed during
the Apple Festival, on Oct. 4-5. All photographs and
ribbons may be picked up at the Chamber the week after
the Apple Festival.
