If the Chamber Office is closed, please drop off your entry at the Commercial Bank, next door!

Grab your cameras, tablets, or cell phones and get out and about in Oglethorpe County to see what you can see! The Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring an amateur photography contest to run from now until October 3. The Chamber is in need of good photos taken in the county for various things – tourism, promotions, to stock the state film industry site, a fund raising project, décor for the depot, etc.

The photos must be current (January 2016 to October 2017), taken in Oglethorpe County, submitted both digitally (at least 300 dpi), and in hard copy format (8 X 10 or 11 X 14) and mounted on a rigid backing of sufficient weight to stand on an easel. Photographers name, phone, and email address must be attached to the back of each entry.

Photographer must be an amateur and all photos become the property of the Oglethorpe County Chamber of Commerce for use in promotions and sales. There will be an adult category and an under 12 category. Deadline for submission is October 3, 2017. Digital files can be emailed to office@oglethorpecofc.org and hard copies can be delivered or shipped to the Chamber office at the Crawford Depot, 1158 Athens Road, or mailed to the Chamber at P O Box 56, Crawford, GA 30630.

Photos will be judged by a panel of both amateur and professional photographers and prizes awarded.

The Chamber is also seeking sponsors for the contest for prizes and for the reception to honor the winners and to showcase all the photography entries. Checks can be mailed to Oglethorpe Chamber of Commerce, P O Box 56, Crawford, GA 30640. All amounts are appreciated.
