Entry form attached

Entries are due Friday for Brunswick 365, the third annual Brunswick Beacon photo contest.

This year's theme asks for photos that represent Brunswick County throughout the year. Selected photos may appear in future Beacon publications.

To enter, find an entry form in the Beacon or download a form from the link attached at the bottom of this page. A completed entry form must accompany all photo submissions.

The deadline for submissions is 5:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 29. Drop off submissions at the Beacon office, 208 Smith Ave., Shallotte, or mail them to the Beacon, attn. Brunswick 365, P.O. Box 2558, Shallotte, NC 28459.

Participants may enter in one of the three divisions—adults (18 and older), teenagers (13-17) and kids (12 and younger). There is a $5 entry fee per photo in the adult division. Teenagers and kids may enter for free. Enter as many photos as you wish.

Judges will score photos based on originality, representation of theme and technical merit. Submit digital entries of the highest resolution on CDs only. Multiple entries may be burned on a single CD, but a completed entry form must be submitted for each photo on the CD.

Winners in each division will receive cash prizes. One hundred dollars will be awarded for first-place photos, $50 for second place and $25 for third place. Winners will be notified by phone no later than Dec. 1.

Entries may not have been entered or won previous contests, become property of the Beacon and will not be returned. Beacon employees are not eligible for participation or prizes.

Photos may appear in future publications. Last year’s winning photo in the adult division was selected as this year’s Brunswick Living cover. Several of this year’s Island Living covers were winners and submissions from last year’s photo contest. With so many great submissions and a limited amount of prizes awarded, we try to showcase as many photos as possible.

Enter your photos before the deadline, 5:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 29. Contact Kathryn Jacewicz, staff writer, with any questions. Call her at 754-6890 or e-mail kjacewicz@brunswickbeacon.com.
