Photo Contest

Western is sponsoring a Photo Contest for youth and adult members ages 8 and up. Adult and youth submissions are separated to give each group an equal opportunity at prizes. Submit one entry with any of the themes: Scenic, Human Interest, or Animal. Winning photographs will be featured in the Fraternal Herald and on www.wflains.org.

Rules: Members between the ages of 8 and up may submit one entry any size (up to 5"x7") unmounted, black and white, or color prints. Participants are eligible in one category only (please mark the category on the entry form). Photos should have been taken in the last five years. Polaroid or instant photos are not eligible. Professional photographers are not eligible to enter. Do not send photos taken by anyone other than yourself. Past winning photos are not eligible. Past non-winning photos taken in the last five years may be resubmitted. The human interest photos may not contain any animals. Any photos submitted with animals in them will automatically be placed in the animal category.

How to enter: All entries must be received no later than September 1, 2019. An entry form should accompany a photo entry. Late entries will not be accepted. Photos will be returned if there is a return address label on the back.

Judging: Photos will be judged by a professional in the field of photography. The judge is granted the right to reject any entry deemed inappropriate.
