Time to show your love for Sequim — and earn a chance at a Nikon D3200 digital SLR camera! — in the 2013 Hometown Pride Youth Photo Contest.
Sponsored by Castell Insurance and in partnership with the Sequim Gazette, the contest challenges Sequim youths in grades 6-12 to submit their own photos that capture the majesty of their hometown and submit them to the newspaper.
Entries are separated into two categories — grades 6-8 and 9-12. Entries are accepted from Sept. 23-Nov. 19.
Each category will have a first-, second- and third-place winner, with each receiving a framed 8.5 inch by 11-inch print of their winning photograph and a ribbon. The printing is donated by Sequim Costco, with matting and framing of the print donated by LARC Gallery.
The Best in Show grand prize, selected from the combined winners of both categories, is a Nikon D3200 Digital SLR Camera Kit, donated by Castell Insurance.
In addition, some entries may appear in the Sequim Gazette and on the Castell Insurance Facebook page during the contest period in contest promotional advertisements.
Enter by sending the photos with Entry/Release form digitally to the Sequim Gazette at email@example.com, by mail (Sequim Gazette, Hometown Pride Photo Contest, 147 W. Washington St., Sequim WA 98382) or bring to the front desk (147 W. Washington St., downtown Sequim near the Sequim Avenue intersection) during office hours, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
