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.

Send or hand-deliver to: C-VILLE PHOTO CONTEST 308 E. Main St., Charlottesville, VA 22902. Prints will not be returned.

Our comments system is designed to foster a lively debate of ideas, offer a forum for the exchange of ad hoc information, and solicit honest, respectful feedback about the work we do. We’re glad you’re participating. Here are a few simple rules to follow, which should be relatively straightforward.

1) Don’t call people names or accuse them of things you cannot support.
2) Don’t direct foul language, racial slurs, or offensive terms at other commenters or our staff.
3) Don’t use the discussion on our site for commercial (or shameless personal) promotion.

We reserve the right to remove posts and ban commenters who violate any of the rules listed above, or the spirit of the discussion. We’re trying to create a safe space for a wide range of people to express themselves, and we believe that goal can only be achieved through thoughtful, sensitive editorial control.
