Coast Weekend’s 2017 Photo Contest opens Friday, Nov. 17, and closes Sunday, Dec. 17.
Natural and urban environments, color and black-and-white — the subjects can be just about anything (no shots that don’t belong in a family paper, please). Only photographers from Oregon and Washington may participate.
Once the submission period ends, The Daily Astorian judges will determine first through third place. Meanwhile, the public can vote online for a People’s Choice Award winner Monday, Dec. 18, through Sunday, Dec. 24. The winning photogs will receive gift cards.
The top 10 photos will appear in Coast Weekend’s Jan. 4 print edition, and the top 25 will run online.
Over the years, the Coast Weekend photo contests have become awesomely competitive, bringing in hundreds of artful shots that have set the bar high.
Last year’s first-place winner was a breathtaking silhouetted self-portrait beneath the Milky Way. Other top photos included crashing waves, a rescued bald eagle and a black-and-white of a young baseball player.
The Daily A staff and I can’t wait to see what the region’s best photographers have captured for us this year!
