Photo Contest in Los Gatos

Los Gatos

Reading over the information for the 5th Annual Photo Contest in Los Gatos, I see that a vote will be taken to choose the contest winners, and that awards and prizes will be given. Nowhere do I find what the prizes might be, other than the ‘gift’ of seeing the photos used as free advertising. The rewards of past years have included things like a bottle of wine or a dinner certificate, so I expect it to be the same type of gifting this year. Oh yeah, there is a $10 entry fee for each photographer. Please read the information carefully the rules are very specific. For an entry to be considered for the cover of one of the Chamber’s future Business Directories, photos must have a vertical format.

If you are looking for a free place to have your photos, of anything in the San Jose area, seen you can add them to the Metroblogging San Jose flickr pool.
