It’s that time of year again, when we begin preparations for the 2009 North Carolina 4-H Photography Contest! This year’s new category will be “4-H Centennial” and can include any images from events or celebrations related to the year’s centennial activities.
We will begin accepting entries for the 2009 4-H Photography Contest now and will continue through Tuesday, June 9, 2009. Winning entries will be displayed at 4-H Congress in July. The purpose of this exhibition is to provide a showcase of 4-H members’ photographic accomplishments. After Congress, the winning photos will be displayed at selected meetings and events throughout the year. Winning entries from past years can be viewed online.
Contest categories this year include our standard “4-H in Action” and “Nature’s Beauty” categories, with a new category this year of “4-H Centennial.” Each category will be divided into a Junior (Ages 9-12) and Senior (Ages 13-19) division. Entries should be original images created from June 2008 to June 2009. Copies will be made of the winning entries and all original materials will be returned by September 2009.
For more information, including rules, entry forms and winning entries from previous years, please visit the following website.
The deadline for submitting entries is Thursday June 4, 2009.
We can’t wait to see all the fine photography produced by this year’s participants!
