BET­TER THAN FACE­BOOK ‘LIKES’

The Washington Post Sunday - - TRAVEL -

It’s that time of year — the Travel sec­tion is now ac­cept­ing sub­mis­sions for its 16th an­nual photo con­test.

You may sub­mit one photo per per­son taken since July 1, 2014. If you sub­mit mul­ti­ple en­tries, we will con­sider only the first photo re­ceived. You may sub­mit only an im­age you have taken. Sub­mit high-res­o­lu­tion photos (240 dpi JPEG, at five inches wide or high) online at

wash­ing­ton­post.com/trav­elcon­test. In­clude cap­tion in­for­ma­tion and the date the photo was taken, plus your name, e-mail ad­dress and phone num­ber. We will not pub­lish your per­sonal in­for­ma­tion.

The con­test is open to am­a­teur shut­ter­bugs only; pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­phers (i.e., any­one who earns more than 50 per­cent of his or her an­nual in­come from pho­tog­ra­phy) are not el­i­gi­ble to en­ter.

Please do not sub­mit im­ages that have been heav­ily ma­nip­u­lated. It is ac­cept­able to ad­just an im­age to achieve color bal­ance that re­flects the scene as you ob­served it. Crop­ping is also ac­cept­able. The Washington Post re­serves the right to dis­qual­ify any im­age it feels has been overly al­tered.

The dead­line for en­tries is July 24. By en­ter­ing, you grant The Post a li­cense to use your photos, in­clud­ing the right to edit, pub­lish, dis­trib­ute and re­pub­lish them in any form. Pho­tog­ra­phers re­tain the rights to their im­ages.

The win­ners will be de­ter­mined by Travel sec­tion and Pre­sen­ta­tion Desk staffers. Only U.S. res­i­dents are el­i­gi­ble for prizes. The win­ning photos will be pub­lished on or around Aug. 23. Win­ners will re­ceive gift cer­tifi­cates to a photo re­tailer.

Em­ploy­ees, of­fi­cers, di­rec­tors and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of The Post and its af­fil­i­ates, and those with whom they are domi­ciled, are not el­i­gi­ble. Void out­side the United States and where pro­hib­ited by law. Con­test sub­ject to all fed­eral, state and lo­cal laws. Odds of win­ning de­pend on the num­ber of el­i­gi­ble en­tries. No pur­chase nec­es­sary. For com­plete rules and prize in­for­ma­tion, go to wash­ing­ton­post.com/trav­el­con­testrules or e-mail ques­tions to travel@wash­post.com.
