CONTEST RULES

This contest is meant for those who enjoy capturing and viewing God's creation through photography.

 

- Photos must be taken by the photographer who is submitting the photo.  Except for the Hunting/Fishing category since you may submit photos taken of you. Photographer retains rights to their photos, but by submitting your photos, you grant usage rights to FBCZ – meaning, FBCZ may use your photo for promotional materials with or without crediting the photographer in the future.

 

- Qualifying photographers may submit up to five photos per category for a maximum of 20 submissions per person.If you would like to remove a photo from consideration after it has been submitted, please contact us no later than the closing date for entry, Aug 21, 2022.

 

- Photos must be submitted by 11:59pm on Sunday, Aug 21, 2022. Sorry - no late submissions can be accepted. Judging and fan favorite voting happens in the weeks following that deadline.

 

- All photos will be judged on basis of clarity, composition, creativity, and overall appeal by a 3-person panel of peers. Prizes will be awarded to the fan favorite and a 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each category. Youth photos will be judged separately as a group [not in categories] and a 1st, 2nd and 3rd youth category winner will be selected.

 

- A Fan Favorite photo will be chosen by popular vote from all photos submitted; therefore, make sure to tell your friends to drop by the website and vote for their favorites once voting opens.  Voting will be held on our website for 2 weeks, Aug 29 – Sep 11, 2022.

 

- PRIZES: A hang-ready printed canvas of the winning photo, a winner certificate and recognition on FBCZ’s social media. These prizes will be presented in person at the Outdoorsman Banquet [Sep 27] where we will photograph the winners with their prizes for posting on social media. [Prizes and rules are subject to change without notice. Anyone who is unable to attend the banquet may call to make arrangements to pick up his/her award at the church by the end of November.]
