The following categories will be judged:
1. Animals
2. Scenic (landscapes or panoramic images of scenes)

No professional photographs will be allowed. Photograph dimensions must be a minimum of 4” x 6” (with the exception of panoramic) and a maximum size of 19” x 26”. All photographs must be matted or framed and equipped for hanging with wire or hooks. If your entries are not wired securely (i.e. no duct tape) or have hooks that are at least 1/2" wide, you will not be able to enter. Entries may be black and white or color. Participants are limited to two entries per category.

There is no age limit or fee. Each participant must reside or work within Person County and/or be a Person County Native. The entry forms may be picked up at the Kirby Gallery or the Person County Recreation Arts and Parks Department.
