Local Snapshots: New contest starts today!

Local Snapshots Category Logo 2016We’re kicking off a new Snapshot Contest today! And the winner is going to get a big 16×20 print of her favorite snapshot printed on canvas and gallery wrapped around a wooden frame so that it’s ready to hang on the wall.

bundled upHOW TO ENTER: For this contest, we’d love to see your favorite snapshots from the Thanksgiving and Christmas and Hanukkah seasons. (Snapshots can be from the current year OR from years past.) That means we’re looking for kids in leaves, kids with pumpkins, cooking in the kitchen, playing in the snow, bundled in coats, opening presents, etc. You get the idea.) We’re looking for your “Fall Favorites”  and your “Winter Wonders.” We’ll be displaying some of our favorite submitted snapshots during November and December here on the website’s homepage. The grand prize winner will be chosen at the end of December.

You may submit up to 5 photos each month for the Snapshot Contest (because we know how hard it is to pick a favorite photo.) Email the photos to gwen@nwaMotherlode.com.

Here are a few favorite pics from past years that might spark some ideas for photos you might like to submit. Look through the pics on your phone or Facebook page. We bet you already have some awesome shots that would be great for this contest. Good luck!
