Photo contest coming up

Woodward, Okla. — The Plains Indians and Pioneers Museum will once again be holding its annual photo contest this fall.

According to Rob Roberson, the contest is open to people of all ages and are eligible to win up to $500 for best of show.

"This year's theme is 'My favorite place or favorite thing' and 1st prize, in each category,  will receive $100, 2nd, $50 and 3rd $25," Roberson said.

"To enter just bring your photos down to  the museum or mail them to us, but if you want them back make sure you send extra postage to get them back after the show," Roberson said.

There are 6 categories - portrait, landscape, scenic, animal/insect, black and white and floral.

"People are sometimes confused on the landscape and scenic photographs. For the picture to be landscape it can not have any man made structures in it and scenic it can have man made objects in it," Roberson said.

The public will also be given a chance to vote for the People Choice award, he said.

Entry deadline is September, 8th at 5 p.m. and all entries must be frame free and mounted on a plain white mat, according to Roberson. Selected photos will be on display at the museum from Sept. 15 to Oct. 20.

"The judge will be filmed while he judges and that film will be shown during the awards reception on October 20th here at the museum," Roberson said.

For more information contact the museum at 256-6136.
