 Our next Picture This: Summer Memories

  What about summertime do you miss the most? What memories of summer can brighten a bleak winter day for you? Tell us in pictures!
   Summer Memories is the theme of our next “Picture This” reader photo feature.
   Submissions must be emailed or postmarked by Nov. 25. Selected photos will appear in the January 2014 issue of Today in Mississippi.
    “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.
    Photographers whose photos are selected for publication are eligible for a $200 cash prize, to be awarded in a random drawing each December.
   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.)


Submission requirements
• Submit as many photos as you like, but select only your best work.
• Photos must relate to the given theme.
• Photos must be the original work of an amateur photographer (of any age).
• Photos eligible for publication may be either color or black and white, print or digital.
• Photos must be in sharp focus.
• Digital photos must be high-resolution JPG files. Please do not use photo-editing software to correct colors or tones. (We prefer to do it ourselves, if necessary, according to our printer’s standards.)
• Please do not send a photo with the date appearing on the image.
• Photos must be accompanied by identifying information: photographer’s name, address, phone and electric power association (if applicable). Include the name(s) of any recognizable people, places and pets in the picture.
• Prints will be returned if accompanied by a self-addressed, stamped envelope. We cannot, however, guarantee their safe return through the mail.
