The Farmington Public library will be creating up to eight new library cards featuring photos from the Four Corners, taken by San Juan County residents. Your original photograph could be on the front of a Farmington Public Library card. The Farmington Public Library will choose up to 8 images to be used for their new library cards, and will pay the photographers $200, if their photograph is chosen.
This contest is open to ALL photographers in San Juan County area. No purchase is necessary to enter this contest.
The Farmington Public Library is looking for striking digital images of San Juan County, to be used as library cards. Photographs will be judged based on their suitability for this use. Submissions should include a minimum quarter inch bleed, required for printing a library card, and should allow a space for library card text to be added. The actual size of the library card is 3.375" by 2.125".
No recognizable faces are to be included and photographs may not include any text of any kind, including building signs, or road signs. Images that showcase the wide range of landscapes and habitats in San Juan County are preferred. Please do not include photographs of pets or domestic animals. Entrants must not submit images that involve the willful harassment of wildlife, damage to the environment by the photographer, put any individual or animal in danger, or infringe on the rights of any other photographer or person.
All photographs should accurately reflect the subject matter and the scene as it appeared. Photos that have been digitally altered beyond standard optimization (removal of dust, cropping, reasonable adjustments to exposure, color and contrast, etc.) will be disqualified. Images that do not meet these requirements may or may not be judged at the library's sole discretion.
Photos must be submitted by email to Photos@infoway.org. Photos should be in a high quality, digital format. Photo captions must accompany all submissions, and should include the subject of the image, the location the image was taken, and the name and contact information of the photographer. Submissions without this information will not be considered for this contest.
Each photographer may submit one photo for consideration. Any photographer submitting more than one photo will not be considered for this contest. Previously submitted photos that were not selected will be accepted.
