Stearns County is once again calling all photographers for its third annual summer photo contest.
The theme for this year's photo contest is "Celebrations." We want residents of Stearns County to send us pictures of their celebration. That can be a town festival, a barbecue in the backyard, a family reunion, a vacation at the cabin, a graduation or anything else that's a celebration in your life. There is only one requirement; the celebration must be in Stearns County.
Out of those photos submitted, three pictures will win top prizes-a summer celebration package worth $50! Thank you to Scheel's who donated $100, Walmart $25 and Sam's Club $25. Two others will win an annual permit to
Stearns County's Quarry Park. Images will be judged on creativity, originality, photo content and relevance to the "Celebrations" contest theme.
So help promote the County on Stearns County's website. It's a chance to publicize your favorite celebration and the community you love. Whether photography is a passion, a hobby, or an occasional pastime, we want everyone to participate.
Photos can be submitted online through Stearns County's web site at co.stearns.mn.us. All pictures will be displayed in the County's online photo gallery. The top photos, as well as some others, will also get special recognition and be featured on the home page of Stearns County's web site and will be displayed in the Stearns County Administration Center rotunda. Photos could also appear in brochures and other materials promoting the County.
So start snapping; Stearns County's photo contest ends with summer, Friday, Aug. 31, 2012. Winners will be announced and prizes awarded the week of
