July 2010 Maris Ehlers Photography Photo Contest - Minneapolis Portrait Photographer

I am pleased to announce that the July 2010 MEP Photo Contest theme is:  YOUTHFUL.  ANYONE with a camera (or a phone with a camera) is eligible to enter!

YOUTHFUL can have any interpretation or meaning: It can be anything from a newborn to an old grandpa playing checkers with a grandchild. It could be young love, baby animals:  Whatever says "YOUTHFUL" to you is a valid entry!  

We gotta have rules, so here they are:

1. Entries accepted between now and the end of the day on 7/18/10 (before 12 midnight).  
2. Entries should be emailed to me (and not posted on facebook) at with the word "YOUTHFUL" in the subject line! 
3. Please feel free to spread the word that you've entered a contest, and "likes" are welcome and encouraged. 
4. Please note that in order to be able to "like" an image, you must "like" Maris Ehlers Photography - that's Facebook's rule, not mine.
5. Please be AWARE that if you use a face or person in your image, in the body of your entry email you MUST tell me that you have a copyright release from the person in the image, or the parent/guardian if the person is a minor.  YOUR PICTURE WILL NOT BE POSTED WITHOUT this statement in your email.  
6. This contest is open to amateurs, professionals and anyone in between.
7. "Likes" of an image are ONE element of the judging. A panel of 5 judges will be chosen by MEP to pick the winning image.
8. The winning image will receive a free family session with Maris Ehlers Photography. If you are not local, then you are entering for the spirit of it, unless you plan on coming to Minnesota.  :)  
9. Entrants can be local or from anywhere else - the more the merrier!
10. Photo editing is acceptable.
11. MEP reserves the right to decline a photo for any reason (including inappropriate content, irrelevancy to theme, etc, etc).
12. When MEP posts your photo to the contest album on facebook, you will be tagged in the image if you are a "friend".  If you wish to be tagged then please send a friend request.  

I think that's it!!! Good luck, and if you have any questions at all, please let me know!
