Fourth Annual Lighthouse Digest Photo Contest


Yes, it's time again to send in those lighthouse pictures for the Lighthouse Digest Photo Contest. This contest will be bigger and better, since we will have four different categories. Plus, not only do you have more chances to win, all photos will also be considered for a separate cash prize for the cover of the Lighthouse Depot catalog.

The four categories will be: A. Best Daytime View; B. Dramatic weather; C. Most remote lighthouse; D. International Lights

The first place winner in each category will receive a $100 gift certificate toward merchandise in the Lighthouse Depot catalog. Second place in each category will receive a $50 gift certificate, and third place in each category will receive a $35 gift certificate.

If your photograph is used for the cover of the Lighthouse Depot catalog, you will win $100 cash. A photograph may win in the Lighthouse Digest contest and may not be chosen for the cover of the Lighthouse Depot catalog. On the other hand, it might. So, as you can see, because of the four categories and the chance to appear on the cover of Lighthouse Depot, you personally have a double, triple or even a quintuple chance of winning. It all depends on how many photographs you enter.

The rules are simple . . . You may send in as many entries as you want. All photos must be in color. Photos may be entered in any size. All entries must be photographs, not slides or negatives. All photographs will become the property of Lighthouse Digest and may be used in future issues of the Digest. They will not and can not be returned. Be sure to print your full name and address and the name of the lighthouse with each entry. If we can't read your name and address, the photo will not be considered. Please do not write directly on the back of the photo, many times the ink comes through and we can't use the photo. Return address labels work well. If you want to enter more than one photo, please use only one envelope. Due to the huge volume of entries we receive, please do not put orders into the same envelope as your entries. All entries must be received by November 15, 1997.

Tip . . If you want your photo to appear on the cover of Lighthouse Digest, it should be a vertical photo, not a horizontal one. And leave room in the sky for the mast head words Lighthouse Digest. However, all photographs will be considered, vertical or horizontal. It is simply easier for us to use a vertical photo on the cover, but certainly not necessary to win.
