Do you know someone in middle or high school who takes great pictures? Our annual photo contest is their chance to show off! First prize is a $100 prepaid debit card and your photo as the cover for the KCPL Teens facebook page; 2nd prize is a $50 prepaid debit card. (Last year’s gallery show, photos by Jessy Griffith, teen services librarian at Durr/Independence.) All the photos will be on display at our gallery show event at the Durr/Independence Branch on Friday, January 30 at 6pm. These are open to any and everyone in the community! Submit up to 2 JPEG images as email attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org between January 1-January 26. Include your name, grade, and contact phone or e-mail. I will send a reply after I receive your photos. If you do not get a reply email, please try again or call the library. By entering the contest you are allowing the library to use the images in promotional materials (like this blog post [except the gallery show photo]) and galleries both online and in print. Maximum two entries per person. Judges will be library staff and volunteers. See all of last year's photos here!
