Midwest Architecture: Cities & Towns

 Photography Contest

Grab your camera! It’s time to enter Wolfe Camera’s Midwest Architecture: Cities & Towns Photography Contest.
We are now accepting entries to the contest with a final deadline of January 31, 2018.

 Photo Guidelines:

  1. Photos must be of architecture from Midwest towns/cities. Our next photo contest will be based on Midwest rural images, so save barns/silos/etc for that contest! Examples of subjects for this contest: downtowns, schools, churches, homes, etc.
  2. Because Wolfe’s will not be selling these images, no model release is necessary to submit your image(s).  Following the contest, if Wolfe’s is interested in collaborating with contest photographers on any projects requiring use of images, photographers will be contacted by Wolfe’s staff and will discuss feasibility of obtaining a model release.
  3. Photographs should have been taken in 2015 or later.
  4. Photographs must be the sole and original work of the contestant and not copied, in whole or part, from any other work.
  5. Wolfe’s Camera has the right to reproduce, use, and/or transmit the submitted photograph, in whole or in part, in any type of media, including contest promotional materials and on our social media outlets. All other rights to the photograph remain with the photographer.

 Submission Requirements:

  1. Submit photos using the form below by Wednesday, January 31st, 2018
  2. Provide your name, address, phone number, email address, Instagram username (if applicable), and a description of the photo.
  3. You may submit up to four (4) photos for judging, but we may limit each photographer to no more than one (1) winning entry.  Both amateur and professional photographers are welcome to enter the contest.  There is no entry fee.
  4. Only digital photos submitted as a JPEG, BMP, or PNG will be accepted. The larger the file size, the more detail our judges will be able to see. Please submit high-resolution files, if possible.
