“Picture This” is a reader photo feature appearing in the January, April, July and October issues of Today in Mississippi. We publish a few of the most eye-catching photos that best illustrate the given theme from among those submitted.
    Photographers whose photos are selected for publication are eligible for a $200 cash prize, to be awarded in a random drawing in December.
   Please note: This is not a contest, as photos will not be judged. Photos are selected for publication based on their overall quality, relevance to the given theme, visual impact and suitability for printing on newsprint paper. (Dark photos usually do not print well. We look for bright photos with good contrast and sharp focus.)

Our next ‘Picture This’ theme
• October 2013 issue: Funny Pet Photos
   Entries must be emailed or postmarked by Sept. 10.
   Catch your critter in a funny pose or act. Selected photos will appear in the October 2013 issue of Today in Mississippi.
