You’ve seen the amateur photo contest entries that appear each weekend in our Neighbor section and thought to yourself, “I’ve got a better picture than that.”
Well, now’s your chance to prove it. We are always looking for entries from all over the Fox Valley, and no, the photos don’t have to be of a bird or a sunset.
If you’re like the photo staff here, you always carry a camera or two with you to capture those moments that just pass everyone else by. What makes our contest fun week to week is the diversity of subjects, of locales, and certainly the varying talent levels. Remember, this is an amateur contest! You don’t need to have the latest and greatest equipment or a degree in photojournalism. But we do want to see those moments that are important to you and your life.
Who knows, maybe your photograph will strike a chord with other readers.
And maybe even the judges on our photo staff.
