Get your photo on the cover of C-VILLE

Things are about to get ugly at C-VILLE Weekly. That’s because our art director—the guy who makes ours such a pretty paper to behold—is going on vacation.

So photographers, we need your help. Submit a photograph for a chance to see it on the cover of our July 26 issue. Otherwise, things may get really ugly—we’re talking MS Paint ugly.

Details are below.

C-VILLE is looking for submissions for our annual photo contest. We are seeking high quality prints featuring local people, places or things (no smaller than 4" x 6"). Preference may be given to vertical compositions. Photographers may submit multiple entries.

Winners will be published in the July 26 issue of C-VILLE. Deadline: July 7. Entries must have photographer’s name, address, and phone number securely attached TO EACH PRINT. (Prints only.)

1st Prize: $500 gift certificate from Pro Camera; 2nd Prize: $250 gift certificate from Fast Frame; 3rd Prize: $100 gift certificate from Zocalo.
