Outdoor Oklahoma magazine is accepting entries for its annual “Readers’ Photography Showcase” contest through March 31.
Selected photographers will have their work featured in the July/August 2010 issue of Outdoor Oklahoma.
“This is a great chance to see your own outdoor photography in print, as well as the work of other Oklahomans who enjoy the outdoors, but time is running out for submitting an entry,” said Michael Bergin, associate editor of Outdoor Oklahoma.
The special summer issue gives both professional and amateur photographers the chance to have their digital photos displayed in a magazine nationally recognized for its photography.
Each participant may submit up to five digital images. Each submission must include a description of the photo, including the location taken, name and hometown of photographer, names and hometowns of subjects and what it took to get just the right shot. Photos should be in sharp focus, and images should be at least 300 dpi (dots per inch). The canvas size should be about 8 inches by 11 inches.
All submissions must be digital and slides. Print images will not be accepted. The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation reserves one-time publication rights for images selected for the “Readers’ Photography Showcase,” and images remain the property of the photographer.
CDs and other file storage devices mailed to the Wildlife Department as part of submissions to the contest are not returned.
“We’ve received many great entries to the contest already,” Bergin said. “And we hope that anyone else interested in making a submission remembers to do so by March 31.”
Photographers can mail their submission on disk to: Outdoor Oklahoma magazine, Oklahoma Dept. of Wildlife Conservation, P.O. Box 53465, Oklahoma City, OK 73152. Readers may also e-mail their entries to email@example.com.
