MITCHELL — The Persimmon Festival photo contest registration will take place on Sunday, from 2-4 p.m., at the First Baptist Church Christian Life Center, which is on Frank Street between Seventh and Eighth streets.
Contest chairwoman Deb Cory welcomes all amateur photographers in Lawrence and surrounding counties to enter.
Entrants can enter one photo in each of the following categories: Festival theme (Shop Local … Buy Mitchell), People, Black and White, Animals, Scenic/Landscape, Flowers, Holiday and Misc.
The results of the popular vote contest are announced and awarded on Sept. 27. There will be three winners in each category with a Judge’s Choice Award and Best in Show ribbon given as well.
The smallest photo allowed is 8-inch by 10-inches and the largest is 11-inches by 14-inches (without mats). Photos must have a surrounding mat that will protect the photo in its display. Foam display boards are used, so no frames can be included with the photographs.
When registering, entrants must make sure pertinent information, including their name, phone number and email, be included on the back of each photo. Entrants will be assigned a number that the public will use to vote for each photo. Entrants also will fill out a registration form to accompany their photos.
Photos will be displayed at the FBC Christian Life Center throughout the week. The public is encouraged to view the photos and vote for a favorite.
