AMATEUR PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST

Details about our 3rd annual Amateur Photography contest will be announced summer of 2020. Thank you to everyone who participated and submitted photos for 2019!

ELIGIBILITY
Amateur photographers may enter up to two photographs that were taken during 2020. Anyone ages 5 and up may enter.

Photographs must be original. Only basic editing (such as cropping, adjustment of brightness and color saturation, and red-eye reduction) will be allowed. No extensive Photoshop work or special effects. Any type of camera or device may be used to take the photograph.

It is the artist’s responsibility to obtain releases from subjects in portraits.

Milton Public Library has the right to refuse to display an entry based upon questionable content, e.g. nudity is not allowed.

HOW TO ENTER
Beginning Thursday, October 1, 2020, photographers may submit their entries through a Google Form or by e-mailing the photo file to mpl@als.lib.wi.us. Participants must include a JPEG file of the photo, as well as their name, age group and brief description of the photograph. The deadline is Monday, November 30, 2020. Entries will not be accepted after midnight on November 30, 2020.

JUDGING
Photographs will be available for viewing on the Milton Public Library webpage beginning Tuesday, December 1, 2020. Patrons will be able to vote for a favorite until Thursday, December 31, 2020, through Google Forms. Winners will be chosen based on the number of votes. There will be one winner in each of the following age groups. The categories are Children (ages 5 – 11), Teen (ages 12 – 17), and Adult (age 18 and up).
