“On Assignment” with Towner Jones Photography

Summer Photography Contest

This summer, our friend Rob Jones of Towner Joens Photography is hosting a really cool photography contest.

Here’s the rundown:

The contest, like always, is open to amateur and professional photographers alike. However, that’s about the only thing it has in common with our regular monthly contest.

The biggest difference is – you get to choose your theme. The goal is for you to pick something that you can get excited about. And… something that will inspire you to take multiple pictures. You see, another key difference with this contest is that we’re looking for a series of photos, instead of a single shot.

To participate, you’ll need to send an email to onassignment@townerjones.com with your name, address, and “theme of choice” no later than June 30th. Once you submit, your theme will be reviewed and upon approval you’re “On Assignment” to capture 10 to 20 images related to your theme! (Only images captured during the contest dates qualify)

Next, on July 31, you’ll submit one of your photos (from your themed collection) to give the rest of us a “sneak peak” of what you’ve been working on. (Actually, we’ll be posting some selected photos from the “sneak peak” on the web – but three months is a long time to wait and we’ll be excited to see you’re great work, you’ve got to give us something!)

Finally, on August 31, you’ll submit all of your final photos for final review. (Details for submission will be emailed to all our registered contestants)

Photos will be judged on three categories: General Appeal (50%), Creativity (25%), and Relation to Theme (25%)

Rob has generously invited me to be a member of the team of judges he is assembling to go through all of the entries and select the grand prize winner.
