CONTEST SUBMISSION DATES
June 1st – September 15

JUDGING CRITERIA
Photos are judged by artistic merit, originality and their suitability for the visitor guide. They must fit the layout and illustrate the articles and subject matter in the guide. They also must print well in a magazine, i.e., very dark photos often don’t print well.

The winning photos will be used in a vertical format. If your photo is not vertical, we may crop it to fit the page. The $500 winning photo will be the cover of the Visitors Guide. The other winning photos will be featured at the beginning of each section in the Guide to illustrate the content of that section.

COVER SUBJECT MATTER
We are looking for photos that show the incredible scenery, varied wildlife and the many activities and adventures available in the Homer area including Anchor Point, Seldovia and Halibut Cove . We encourage you to take action shots of people enjoying activities in our beautiful surroundings, fishing shots and shots of the Spit. Pick up a copy of our Visitors Guide or download it from the website www.homeralaska.org to get an idea of what we are looking for.
