KPL Photography Contest

From the Kitchener Public Library Website:

The Record and Kitchener Public Library are proud to announce they have teamed up to host an amateur photography contest early next year. We are currently taking submissions for the contest which will be judged in February 2007. A total of three submissions per photographer will be accepted in two age divisions: youth (18 and under) or adult (19 and over).

Special recognition will be made for first, second and third place recipients in three categories.

Deadline for entry: Wednesday, January 31, 2007.
Winners will be notified by late February, 2007.

Winning entries will be published in an issue of The Record. Winning entries will also be displayed in the Concourse Gallery, lower level of the Main Library throughout April 2007.

I wish I still had my digital camera! Not that I’m any good at taking photos anyway, but it’d still be fun to enter.

  1. What is the criteria?

  2. well, the link I posted has it all…but there are three categories: nature, people, architecture.

    Participants may use any type of camera, so long as a quality print can be provided to our judges (maximum 5 x 7 please). All entries are to be delivered to the Marketing and Communications Department of the Main Library or mailed to Kitchener Public Library

  3. Hey Jen, do you know about the Raincoast Worst Case Scenario Video Contest? You submit a video survival tip for a chance to win $500 shopping spree. It’s based on the Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook series. See, yet another reason to have a digital camera with movie mode. http://www.raincoast.com/worstcase/

    There are some sample videos you can watch too. Some from YouTube and some animated ones.

    My disclaimer of course is that I’m working on the contest at Raincoast, but I still think it’s a fun idea.

    What’s the library going to do with the photos after?

  4. I thought it was very odd that you had to submit physical prints. Among other things, this raises the barrier to entry for young people.

  5. yes, Darren, I thought so too. But, it’s not too hard to upload photos to Walmart to print one or two copies out.

    I also don’t like that cost of framing is responsibility of the winner – seems quite inappropriate to me.

    Monique, that contest sounds great!
