2016 Photo Contest rules posted
The rules for the 2016 Friends of Mariners Trail Photo Contest have been posted. As before, the 13 winning pictures will be used in next year's Trail calendar. The prize for the cover photo has been increased to $100. A drawing among all the entrants will be held for a $25 Chamber Bucks prize. Larry Corrado, Calendar Committee member, said that the committee would like to see more pictures showing action along the Trail, people actually using Mariners Trail. He mentioned, however, that photographers should get permission to enter the photo from any recognizable people in their photos.
A pdf version of the Rules/Entry Form for the contest is available here. The form can be printed, filled in, and sent in with submissions. Those wishing to email entries can simply provide the same information as on the form in the body of the email message. Anyone with questions about submitting pictures can contact committee member Kelly Keedy at 920-645-7786.
