Photo of the Year is run by a small group of dedicated volunteers and has been supported by Uncage the Soul Productions. With the efforts of Friends of Outdoor School, support from our sponsors, and your participation, Photo of the Year 2012 is poised to showcase more amazing photography and raise thousands of dollars for the Outdoor School!
So, don’t wait, get out there and take those cool photos!
All POTY photo submissions received will be compiled in random order and viewed by an impartial and unbiased panel of judges organized by Friends of Outdoor School. Their selection process will result in the Top 100 semi-finalist photographs for Photo of the Year and 10 semi-finalist photos each in the categories of Outdoor School, Youth, Professional, and Portland. These semi-finalist photographs will then be posted to the Photo of the Year web site, at which time online voting is launched to the world.
Visitors to the website between January 13 and January 27, 2013 may vote for their top 10 favorite photos in the Top 100 and their number 1 favorite photo in each of the four other categories. The online voting will conclude at midnight on Sunday, January 27, 2013. The winning photo and first runner up from each of the four categories as well as the Top 100 overall winner, as determined by the online voting, will be printed, framed, and unveiled at the Photo of the Year Gallery Opening on February 9, 2013.
