Snap­shots of Amer­ica photo con­test

Changjiang Weekly - - TOP NEWS -

The U.S. Con­sulate Gen­eral in Wuhan is hold­ing a photo con­test "Ex­plore Amer­ica through Travel and Pho­tog­ra­phy" to col­lect qual­ity pho­tos that doc­u­ment the na­ture, peo­ple, and cul­ture of Amer­ica. Through dif­fer­ent pho­to­graphic per­spec­tives of Chi­nese tourists, at­ten­dees will be able to see Amer­ica through the eyes of Chi­nese peo­ple.

En­trants must be at least 18 years old on the date of en­try into the con­test and be res­i­dents of the Peo­ple's Repub­lic of China. Each en­trant can up­load up to three high res­o­lu­tion pho­to­graphs. Photo sub­mis­sions must be in JPG for­mat, 10 megabytes or larger, but res­o­lu­tion must be no smaller than 1024×

768 pix­els. Sub­mis­sions should not have any vis­i­ble wa­ter­marks, sig­na­tures, or per­son­ally iden­ti­fi­able in­for­ma­tion. The sub­mit­ted pho­to­graph can­not be sig­nif­i­cantly re­touched: noth­ing in the pho­to­graph (peo­ple, an­i­mals, scenery, ob­jects, etc.) may be dig­i­tally al­tered, re­moved, aug­mented or re­ar­ranged. To sub­mit pho­tos, fill in the re­quired forms and email them and the pho­tos to wuhan­ The ti­tle of the email should be " + Pho­tog­ra­phy Type + Pho­tog­ra­pher Name". An au­to­matic re­ply will be sent as proof of suc­cess­ful reg­is­tra­tion. En­tries may be sub­mit­ted be­tween March 30 and mid­night of May 4 of this year.

The judg­ing panel is com­posed of rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the U.S. Con­sulate Gen­eral in Wuhan, lo­cal well­known pho­tog­ra­phers, and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from con­test spon­sors. En­tries will be judged based on light and shadow, color, com­po­si­tion, mood, and cre­ativ­ity. Re­sults will be re­leased late May.

One grand prize win­ner will re­ceive roundtrip busi­ness-class tick­ets from Wuhan to San Fran­cisco (tax not in­cluded) while all win­ning pho­to­graphs will be dis­played on the U.S. Con­sulate Gen­eral in Wuhan's web­site, so­cial me­dia, or in the Em­bassy it­self.
