The Scene's pretty much annual photo contest is upon us, which means it is now time to submit your photos for consideration. You've got until Feb. 1. Our clandestine committee of judges will choose their favorite — good for a $300 cash prize. And starting Feb. 11, we'll ask you to vote on the Reader's Choice Winner — also to receive $300 — at nashvillescene.com.
Thirty (or so) finalists will then make it into the Feb. 28 print edition of the Scene, just as they did last time around. A few things have changed this year, including the entry fee (up to five submissions at $5 each), so please read the instructions below carefully before you enter. One thing I know about the clandestine committee of judges is that they are sticklers for the contest rules.
Now get to snapping — no, links to your Instagram feed will not be accepted — and submit.
This year we are charging for entries. People can enter up to 5 photos at $5 a piece. Two cash prizes will be given: $300 for the judges' winner and $300 for the reader's choice winner (out of the 30 judges finalists). Entries are taken from Jan. 11 - Feb. 1st. The issue will be out Feb. 28. Photos must of been taken between Oct. 13, 2011 and present.
Each submission costs $5.
Please submit up to 5 photos that speak to your life in Nashville. Participants must live in and photos must be taken in Davidson, Williamson, Rutherford, Wilson, Sumner, Robertson, Dickson, and Cheatham counties within the past 15 months (October 13, 2011 to present).
Name the photographs with your first and last name and number of photograph submitted — Example: ElizabethJones_1.jpg, ElizabethJones_2.jpg, etc.
Photos must be high resolution (at least 5 x 7 inches at 300 dpi/taken with the highest setting on your camera).
IF YOU UPLOAD A LOW RESOLUTION PHOTOGRAPH, YOU MUST BE ABLE TO PROVIDE A HIGH RESOLUTION PHOTOGRAPH OR YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.
Approx. 30 finalists will be printed in the Scene Feb. 28, 2013, with one Grand Prize Winner and one Reader's Choice Winner (awarded $300 each).
Come back Feb. 11 to vote on the Reader's Choice Winner
Submissions are taken until Feb. 1 at midnight.
If you have any questions about your submission, please contact Elizabeth Jones, ejones [at] nashvillescene [dot] com.
