The Photo Contest is open to all Amateur Photographers! (if you currently own a photography business or make a consistent income from Photography, you are not eligible). There are no age or residency requirements. There are no special categories for youth or children. Each contestant can submit a maximum of 3 photos.
The Grand Prize is a 128 GB Apple iPad mini. There will also be prizes for two Honourable Mentions and every photo that gets chosen for the calendar will get a prize from the County of Stettler.
Photographs should be submitted electronically. We are looking for high quality photos, so take the photos on your camera’s highest resolution setting and don’t downsize the photos when you are saving or sending them. Landscapes work better than 'portrait' for calendar format.
The photos that are submitted must be taken by the entrant and must have been taken within the County of Stettler. Photos taken within the Town of Stettler, Villages of Gadsby, Big Valley or Donalda or the Summer Villages of Rochon Sands or White Sands will be accepted and considered for our calendar, but won’t be eligible for the grand prize. If requested, you must be able to confirm where in the County of Stettler your photos were taken.
There are no time restrictions on when the photo was taken. We will accept photos that were taken in previous years. Your submissions must be original, unpublished photographs.
By submitting the entry form, the photographer consents to entry of his or her submission and agrees to the photography contest rules and the decision of the judges, which are final and binding in all matters of this contest.
The photographer grants the County of Stettler the unrestricted rights to use the photograph for any purpose including, but not limited to, publishing the photo in print or electronic form for promotional use or publication by the County of Stettler without further compensation, and the right to use the photographers name as a credit along with the photograph.
The photographer acknowledges that he/she has obtained permission from all recognizable persons or the parents or legal guardians of minors appearing in the photograph to release the photograph to the County of Stettler and grants the County of Stettler the right to publish the photograph.
