March 31 is the last day for readers of Outdoor Oklahoma
magazine to submit their entries to the “Readers’ Photography
Showcase” contest. Selected photos will be published in the
July/August issue of the magazine.
“We are now entering the last stretch of the contest entry period,”
said Michael Bergin, associate editor. “After that, the judges go
to work selecting those photos that will be featured in the
magazine. We receive a lot of entries, and it’s a challenge for the
judges to make their final selections, but we are confident our
readers will enjoy their fellow Oklahomans’ photography.”
Each participant may submit up to five digital images.
“Submissions should be photographs taken in Oklahoma, and they can
be of anything related to wildlife and the outdoors,” Bergin said.
“Everything from birds and deer to trees, insects, landscapes, and
people hunting and fishing are good subjects.”
Each submission must include a description of the photo, including
the location taken, name and hometown of photographer, names and
hometowns of subjects and what it took to get just the right shot.
Photos should be in sharp focus, and images should be at least 300
dpi (dots per inch). The canvas size should be about 8 inches by 11
inches. All submissions must be digital. Slides and print images
will not be accepted. Though images will remain the property of the
photographer, actual submissions that are e-mailed or mailed on CD
or other storage device will not be returned.
Hopeful photographers can e-mail their entries to
email@example.com or mail a disk to: Outdoor Oklahoma
magazine, Oklahoma Dept. of Wildlife Conservation, P.O. Box 53465,
Oklahoma City, OK 73152.
