Helpful Hints for your entries:

  • Make sure your subject matter is well lit and not under partial shadows.
  • Even amazingly rare shots will have trouble winning if they are blurry.
  • Look at what is going on in the background of your photo and make sure it doesn’t detract from your main subject matter, including random arms or partial faces that can sneak into your photo.
  • Unless the background is important and really enhances the shot, your subject matter should be centered and fill a majority of the frame without cutting off an essential part of the subject matter (like tops of heads).
  • Make sure your photo tells a story, even if it is “We had a good time at the Faire!”
  • Subject matter should preferably be facing the camera (not necessarily looking at), unless that is part of the story.
  • The Faire will not adjust your photos for judging purposes, so please crop or adjust before submitting.
