Enter the Maris Ehlers Photography SPRING Photo Contest | Maris Ehlers Photography


Just when I think no one is paying attention what what I write, post or share, I get a message from a facebook follower named Nicole with the subject line "BEING NOSY".

What was she being nosy about?  She wanted to know where the MEP photo contests are!  Not only that, but she specifically wanted to know the details of when and theme.  So Nicole, this one's for you!

Tulips always say spring to me.  This was taken in March, right around the first day of spring, and since it's snowing here today, this is what spring in MN looks like!

MEP Spring Photo Contest

SPRING can have any interpretation or meaning: It can be anything that represents the season, the word, the idea of renewal, spring color, you name it!  Whatever comes to mind.  

We gotta have rules, so here they are:

1. Entries accepted between now and the end of the day on 5/15/11 (before 12 midnight).  Images must be taken between now and the contest deadline. 
2. Entries MUST be emailed to MEP (and not posted on facebook) at with the word "SPRING" in the subject line! 
3. The file MUST be a jpeg.  No other files will be accepted.  You will be asked to resend it.  
4. Please feel free to spread the word that you've entered a contest, and "likes" are welcome and encouraged. 
5. 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.
6. 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.  
7. This contest is open to amateurs, professionals and anyone in between.
8. "Likes" of an image are ONE element of the judging. An anonymous guest judge has been chosen by MEP to pick the winning image.
9. The winning image will receive all sorts of kudos, a blog post and you may become famous.  
10. Entrants can be local or from anywhere else - the more the merrier!
11. Photo editing is acceptable.
12. MEP reserves the right to decline a photo for any reason (including inappropriate content, irrelevancy to theme, etc, etc).
13. 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.  

Please allow for up to 48 hours for your image to post.  Winners will be announced sometime this spring.  Ha ha.  Actually, no later than  May 20, 2011.

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