Sedgwick County introduces a new way for residents to show pride in their community, as well as show off their photography skills, with a photo contest for Sedgwick County residents.
The rules are simple: any photo taken in Sedgwick County may be submitted for a chance to win tickets to Sedgwick County attractions, including Exploration Place, INTRUST Bank Arena events and the Sedgwick County Zoo.
Photo categories are: Landscape; Architecture; Events; Retro (before 1990); Photos on the Go (photos taken with a cellular phone); and Just Plain Fun!
Today through July 15, digital photos (10 MB maximum per photo) may be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or hard copies may be mailed to Sedgwick County Communications and Community Initiatives, 525 N. Main, Suite 315, Wichita, KS 67203. Participants should include their name, address, phone number, e-mail address, and a description of the photo and category. There is no fee to enter.
The photo contest will end July 15, at which time Sedgwick County residents will have one week to vote for their favorite photo in each category, as well as their overall favorite, on the Sedgwick County website. Winners of each category will receive prizes and their photos will be displayed at the Sedgwick County Courthouse.
