Literary photo contest entry deadline Oct. 31

The deadline is fast approaching for the Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy annual photography contest.

The deadline is fast approaching for the Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy annual photography contest. The contest started Wednesday, Oct. 1 and will run until Friday, Oct. 31.

This contest is easy to enter and fun, says literacy support worker Melody Newcombe.

“Grab your camera and start snapping pictures of your family, friends and co-workers using their literacy skills.”

Those are the skills you use when you follow a recipe, read a book, read and follow instructions, write a note, buy groceries.

Almost everything we do everyday involves using our literacy skills whether it’s a complicated task or a simple task.

Take a picture of your friend using a computer, baking a cake, reading the Williams Lake Tribune, writing a list, or counting change.

Your pictures will show what literacy means to you, so be creative.   Get out into the community and start taking those pictures.

There are three prizes, for best adult (over 18 years), one for a youth (under 18 years) and a random third prize.

The contest also comes with bragging rights with all of the photographs being published on the Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy website http://www.caribooliteracy.com. All photos will be property of CCPL and may be used in promotional material.

Entries must be mailed at mel@caribooliteracy.com as a full jpeg, meaning you send your photo in its original size.

Entries must include full name, contact number and photograph title.  Please identify the person or persons in the photo and submit their first and last names from left to right.  The person or person(s) in the photo must agree to have his or her name published. If you are sending a photo by regular mail, please send it to M.  Newcombe, P.O. Box 48, 108 Mile Ranch, B.C., V0K 2Z0.
