There are no substantial rules changes for this year’s contest. As you will probably notice, the rules have been reformatted and cleaned up to match the style of the re-worked clip contest rules we posted earlier this year. I hope this will make it easier to digest the rules, categories and entry procedures. If you hit a snag, spot a typo or don’t understand something in the rules, please feel free to email me at email@example.com. The only noteworthy change from last year is we are eliminating the slugs in filenames. For example, you will no longer need to name an entry in this style: spn_jjds_01fire.jpg. You can now simply name it spn_jjds_01.jpg. I hope this streamlines the entry process a bit for everyone.
Contest judging will take place once again on the campus of Indiana University in Bloomington, Ind. on February 20 and 21. A full itinerary of the weekend’s events and judges is forthcoming.
Please don’t forget that yearly dues must be paid in advance of Friday, Feb. 20 (02/20/2015) or your entries will be removed from the judging. You can renew your membership online here: http://www.indiananewsphotographers.org/wp/?page_id=7. We now accept PayPal.
