Take the Picture! Photo Contest

Calling all camera bugs! Here’s a chance to showcase your photography online while helping to raise funds for two worthwhile causes in our community!

The Take the Picture! photo contest is a three month contest starting in August 2011, with a different category for each month. Participants will enter their nature photos in August, animal photos in September & pink (Breast Cancer Awareness) photos in October. They will then get their family, friends & coworkers to vote for their favorite photo. There will be an entry fee for each photo & each vote cost $1, with all proceeds donated to the two charities equally. First place prize package will be awarded to the picture with the most votes in each category and honorable mention will be awarded to one picture chosen by our fearless judging panel in each category. ENTER YOUR PHOTO IN ONE OR ALL THREE CATEGORIES BY JULY 31ST, 2011 AND THE ENTRY FEE WILL BE WAIVED!!!

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and Majical Miniatures will split the funds raised from the admission and voting fees equally. An annual non-competitive walking event sponsored by the American Cancer Society, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer has raised more than $400 million to fund the search for a cure for breast cancer. The three- to five-mile walks are held in cities throughout the country and have attracted an estimated seven million walkers since the event was launched in 1993.

Located in Parrish, Majical Miniatures is an animal sanctuary that rescues and rehabilitates wildlife, as well as exotic and farm animals. The 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, locally known as a place “where second chances are born,” relies on grants and donations to provide food, shelter and medical care for the animals that are given a safe home at the sanctuary.
