** 2nd place will be awarded in each class with > 5 entries; 3rd place will be awarded in each class with >10 entries.
Photo guidelines and contest rules parallel the rules for the AFGC Photo Contest and individuals are encouraged to enter photos in both contests.
Photo Guidelines: A photo should be an obvious illustration of the category in which it is entered. Does the photo tell a story? Most often, the difference between a photo you remember and one that you quickly forget depends on whether the photo tells a story. The viewer should be able to immediately identify the subject in the photo. Photos should be clear and in focus.
Entrants can submit color digital high-resolution photo files to KSFGC Headquarters. These will be displayed on the KSFGC website. Cash prizes will be awarded for the best photos. KSFGC reserves the right to use any photos submitted and credit the photographer when a photo is utilized.
