Photo Contest For New Historical Society Calendar
To promote the beauty of Fulton County, the Fulton County Historical Society joined with local businesses to print a scenic calendar for 2011. Another one is planned for 2012 with a contest for the best amateur photographs. A committee of local people will select the 12 most attractive photos representing all seasons of the year, and winners will have their name included with their photo in the calendar.
To fit a calendar format, photo composition should be horizontal rather than vertical. The photo should be in color and taken within the last five years. More than one photo may be submitted by the same person.
The photo should show a scene taken in Fulton County with the location identified or which is easily recognized as Fulton County, perhaps with old or historic buildings in the background (not a close-up of a single flower.) It should not have people posing in the picture.
A printed photo can be mailed to the Fulton County Historical Society, Box 115, McConnellsburg, PA 17233. A digital photo (preferred) may be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with the attachment reduced to under 1 MB in size until the final selection is made.
Deadline for submission is May 31. Contact either address above for additional questions. This is an opportunity to showcase your best photograph!
