Default Deadline for cover photo contest is Nov. 14

As it has since 2003, the Arkansas Press Association is conducting a contest to determine the cover photo(s) for the 2009 Arkansas Media Directory. This year’s contest was announced on October 16, and 37 photographs have already been submitted, as of Nov. 3. The deadline for entering the contest is Nov. 14, just 11 days off, and any photos received after that date will be deemed ineligible.

Those placing first, second and third in the competition will receive cash prizes of $100.00, $50.00 and $25.00, respectively. The first place photo will be displayed prominently on the cover of the 2009 edition, with the second- and third-place photos featured as insets. Photos receiving honorable mentions will be included inside the Directory as space warrants.

To participate in the contest, newspapers and associate members may email their photos as attachments to Tres Williams at tres@arkansaspress.org. Questions may be directed to Williams at the email address above or at 501.374.1500.

Below are all of the photographs that won first place in the Directory Cover Photo Contest, chronologically:
