Aug. 20 is the deadline for the Wisconsin Sheep Breeders Cooperative's annual photo contest. The contest is open to everyone, including non-WSBC members, regardless of whether they raise sheep.
The initial screening of photos will be based on clarity, content, composition and appeal. Finalist photos will be on display at the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival in Jefferson on Sept. 7 – 9, and visitors to the Festival will vote for the winning photos.
Enter photos in the following categories: Scenic, Kids and Sheep, Any Other Sheep or Wool Photo, and Photo Taken by Youth (for youth aged 18 and younger). Photographers may enter more than one category, and they may enter more than one photograph in each category.
Entries should be 8x10" color or black-and-white prints, and they should not be mounted. A $5 per photo entry fee must accompany each entry, and premiums will be awarded to the top three photographs in each category based on the number of entries.
Write the following information on a 3x5" card and attach it to the back of the photograph: Title of photo, contest category, and the photographer's name, address, phone number and e-mail address. Entries in the Photo Taken by Youth category also must include the age of the photographer.
All entries become the property of WSBC to be used or reproduced at the discretion of WSBC. A selection of finalist entries will be published in The Wisconsin Shepherd, WSBC's newsletter, as space allows. Entries will not be returned.
All entries should be mailed to Jane Metcalf, 2679 N. County Road M, Milton, WI 53563. For more information, contact Metcalf at 608/868-3268 or [email protected].
