Museum still taking photo contest entries

Woodward, Okla. — The Plains Indians and Pioneers Museum wants to remind the public that the entry deadline is fast approaching for its annual photo contest.

This contest features photography from all around the area and state according to Museum Director Rob Roberson.

The contest is open to people of all ages and the top prize will be $500 for best of show, with other additional cash prizes for top awards in the different photo categories.

The 6 categories are portrait, landscape, scenic, animal/insect, floral and black and white, with prizes given to the top 3 placing in each category, Roberson said.

There will also be a $125 prize given for the photograph that best reflects the contest theme.

"The theme this year is 'My Favorite Place or Favorite Thing'," Roberson said.

The deadline to enter photographs for the show is Sept. 8.

All entries must be 8 x 10 photographs, matted on white mattes measuring 11 x 14 inches, he said.

"The mattes must be white, no colors or cream colors," Roberson said.

Entries may be dropped off at the museum during its regular hours of operation between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.  Or entries may be mailed to the Plains Indians and Pioneers Museum, 2009 Williams Ave. Woodward, OK 73801.

Once all the entries are collected, they will be judged and then the winners along with those selected for exhibition will be displayed in the museum's art gallery from September 15th to October 20th.

"Our judge this year is Mark Zimmerman who is a photography professor at UCO," Roberson said.
