*Dates subject to Change or Cancellation
Find attached the 2018-19 D6 4-H Photography Rules & Guidelines, along with a photo label. There are NO CHANGES from last year’s competition except for the Theme which is “Promote 4-H”. The contest will once again be held in conjunction with the Midland County Fair Creative Arts Division. The fair takes place August 23-25 at the Midland County Horseshoe Pavilion.
It is a D6 4-H Contest based on the current 2018-19 Age Divisions. Registration will be taking place through 4-H Connect during the timeframe of July 22 – Aug. 4. A $5.00 entry fee plus $5.00 fee per each photograph paid through 4-HConnect.
Entries will be judged prior to being displayed. All Physical entries must be received by the Howard County Extension Office by August 5th at 5pm.
Howard County agent or volunteer will be onsite on Sunday August 25th from 5-6 pm for participants to pick up photo(s). Photos not picked up will be taken back to the Howard office by the agent or volunteer to be dispersed to the CEA’s at the Fall Admin Meeting on Sept. 25th.
Don’t forget that the visible print must be 8″ x 10″ in size and can be either portrait or landscape layout. Entries must be framed, under glass. Overall frame size must not exceed 18×22 inches. Each photo must be labeled using the attached D6 4-H Photography Contest Label. The label should be taped on the back-side and center of the photo. This is a great opportunity to teach youth framing techniques! By properly framing the entries, they will be eligible to enter into other Creative Arts contests, such as the San Angelo Stock Show & Rodeo. They will be ready to be displayed in the home, or given as a gift. Plus, framing keeps the photos protected and helps with display to the public.
Please read the entire 2019 D6 4-H Photography Rules and Guidelines so you can be informed, and share this information with your county 4-H audience.
This is a district-level competition only.
