Arrow The 2011 Cover Photo Contest

As it has since 2003, the Arkansas Press Association is conducting a contest to determine the cover photo(s) for the 2011 Arkansas Media Directory. This year’s contest was announced on October 14, and the deadline for entering the contest is Nov. 5 (4:00 p.m.), just 16 days off.

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 2011 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:

Thumbs up Another record breaker

The three-week submission period for the 2011 Directory Cover Photo Contest came to a close Friday afternoon (Nov. 5) at 4:00 p.m. In all the Arkansas Press Association received 119 entries for this year’s competition, the winners of which will be featured on the cover of the 2011 Arkansas Media Directory currently in pre-production. That number breaks, by 4 entries, the record set in 2008 for the 2009 edition of the book.

The photos will be judged over the next two weeks, and the finalists will be announced on December 1 exclusively here in the APA Forums. The top entries will initially only appear here. So, come check them out on Dec. 1.
