LIGHTHOUSE PHOTO CONTEST 2016


Dear Photographer:

We hope that you have some great pictures to enter into our Toledo Lighthouse Photo Contest. The Toledo Harbor Light Preservation Society (THLPS) has a photography contest for the Annual Lighthouse Waterfront Festival July 8 & 9, 2017.  

Official Lighthouse Photo Contest Rules:

Photographs of lighthouses from any place are welcome. 
All amateur photographers (one who's income from photography is not more than half their annual earnings) are invited to participate. Photo editing may be minimal without changing the concept or subject of the photo. An example of what may be acceptable would be color adjustment, clarity and cropping.  
Photos are to be approximately 8 x 10 and must be neatly matted. Matted works require no hanging device. 
All photos must have the filled in Entry form securely taped to the back of every photo entered.  
You may enter as many photos as you desire. There is a $5.00 entry fee, per photo, payable at the time of submission. Make payment to "Toledo Lighthouse Society".
Photos may be dropped of at the Maumee Bay State Park Lodge on the Saturday, June 25, 2016 between 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. in the lobby area.

Photos not donated can be picked up during the festival in the lobby of the Lodge. Please do not take your photos prior to the festival. If you wish, your photo may be returned by mail. There is an additional charge of $4.00 per photo if mailed. Every effort will be make to return them safely and in their original condition.

The first level (the beginner) is for new entries and those that have yet to win this competition.
