NC 4-H CONGRESS PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST ENTRY RULES

All entries must be submitted digitally or postmarked NO LATER THAN May 14, 2014.

NEW THIS YEAR: In an effort to reduce costs to photo contest participants, we are
eliminating the requirement that entries be submitted in print format. Instead, we
encourage all participants to submit digital entries to rebecca_kirkland@ncsu.edu.

  • This exhibit is open to (and only to) all North Carolina 4-H members ages 9-19.
  • Participation is NOT limited to just those 4-H’ers enrolled in photography projects.
  • All entry photos must have been taken by the 4-H’er submitting the entry during the contest year.
  • Entrants must submit their photos within the division that applies (Junior/ages 9-12 OR Senior/ages 13-19).
  • Each entrant may submit only one photo in each of the three categories ("4-H in Action", "Nature's Beauty", "Silhouettes"). This means that each individual 4-H’er may have as many as three entries so long as they submit each entry in a different category.
  • The same image may be entered in more than one category (if it applies to each category.)
  • Photos may be in color OR black-and-white.
  • Please, please send your entries at the highest image resolution possible so that we may make high-quality display prints of the winners.

The following rules apply:

Please email all entries to rebecca_kirkland@ncsu.edu, using “NC 4-H Photo Contest 2014” as the subject line.
You may attach as many as three contest entries per person to one email.

Each email containing photos must also contain the following information:

Name of Photographer
Home Address
4-H County
Male/Female
Age
Parent’s/Guardian’s Name(s)
4-H Agent’s Name (First and Last Name)
Entry Division: Junior Division (Ages 9-12) OR Senior Division (Ages 13-19)
Category: 4-H in Action, Nature’s Beauty, Silhouettes
Picture Name and Information: Please tell us any details about your image.

We will continue to accept entries submitted as prints, so long as they are postmarked by May 14, 2014 and include an Entry Form and original media.

Please contact rebecca_kirkland@ncsu.edu with any questions or concerns.
