Helpful Hints for your Entries:

  • Photos are judged by composition (lighting, focus, etc.), how well the photo fits the theme, and the uniqueness of the shot.
  • This is a photo contest. It is not a Photoshop contest. Overly processed images are less likely to win.
  • 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.
