Kingstonist’s Greatest Photo Contest

Kingstonist’s Greatest Photo Contest, call for submissionsLast Fall, Kingstonist conducted our first ever Greatest Photo Contest.  We sourced nominees from our fantastic, ever-growing Flickr pool, while a select few went frame to frame during a week-long battle where our readers were responsible for making the tough decision and crown a champion.  Once the dust was settled, we were pleased to announce Lito Ochotorena as our first champion.  Given the outstanding reception, we vowed to make our Greatest Photo Contest a biannual event.  While we’re a bit past the six month mark since our last photo contest, it gives me great pleasure to announce Kingstonist’s Greatest Photo Contest (July 2011 edition).

The rules are simple. Head on over to Kingstonist’s Flickr group and upload your best images that have been taken in and around Kingston, Ontario. It doesn’t matter if they were snapped today or 10 years ago, so long as they are truly local, and honestly yours. Contestants will have until midnight on Friday, July the 22nd to submit entries until their heart’s content. From there, Kingstonist’s jury will comb through the submissions and come away with a small group of select images. Last but not least comes the fun part, where we’ll once again turn to our readers to vote for their favourite photo from July 25th until the 31st.

The photog responsible for snapping the best shot will be given a $50 gift certificate for either Camera Kingston, or Kingston Frameworks, care of Kingstonist.  And for good measure, we’ll also be throwing in one of fantastic Kingstonist tees to the first runner up.  So, just what would you spend your winnings on? Will you put it towards a new lens, order a nice print or finally get something framed? The choice is yours, but you have to win first. Get snapping, and get uploading!

Thanks to Bien Stephenson for the original photo.
