2014 CRU Photo Contest
The 2014 CRU Photo Contest is open to photographers ages 18 and over. Each participant may submit up to three separate entries, each illustrating your interpretation of the various categories:
Manmade Wonders. Go industrial, go craftsy, go to a landmark. Or you show us.
Stories of the Seasons. Show us the outdoors (the great, the urban, the suburban) and other seasonal themes.
Human Expression. Emotions and the human spirit make great subject matter.
You may add an optional brief artist’s statement for each of your images, if you like.
The contest is open from May 13, 2014 until September 15, 2014 and submitted photographs must have been taken on or after January 1, 2014.
First place winners will be selected in each of the three categories. Separate People’s Choice and a Grand Prize will be awarded. For the Fan Favorite award, the image receiving the most votes (determined by number of likes on FaceBook) wins, so recruit your friends to like/vote for your image!
The Juried Award will award prizes based on the choice of the panel of judges. Learn more about our judges (Zeb Andrews, Bruce Boyajian, and Jamie Diamond)
Cropped photos are eligible in all categories. Minor retouching, including sharpening, removing dust spots, changing contrast and slight color adjustments, are acceptable for all categories. If the judges determine that a photographer has excessively altered his or her photo, they reserve the right to disqualify it.
Your entry must be your original work that has not formerly been published, displayed, or exhibited and you, the entrant, must hold all applicable rights.
