Take Your Best Shot!
The SNJB is an iconic new addition to the Hampton Roads skyline. Its
sleek lines and shapely curves offer both a dramatic setting and subject
for shutterbugs and photographic artists --consider its soaring
silhouette at sunset, shimmering reflections on the river or the view
from any vantage point of the region’s tallest bridge. A new photography
contest is designed to inspire local residents and artists to capture
images of the bridge for prizes and recognition.
Beginning April 1st, images will be accepted for consideration in the
2014 SNJB Photography Contest. At the end of each quarter through 2014,
a collection of up to five (5) Finalists will be chosen and featured on
the bridge’s website and Facebook page. After a week, one (1) of the
Finalists will be selected and featured in a banner on the bridge’s
website and in its quarterly newsletter. At the end of the contest, all
Finalists and selected additional pieces will be displayed in a special
public exhibition in early 2015 with a People’s Choice voting event. The
People’s Choice selection and Quarterly Winners also will be published
as a limited edition of personal notecards and available for purchase.
How to Enter: Please submit your original photograph in a .jpg, .gif,
.tif or .pdf format via e-mail to JordanBridgeVirginia@gmail.com . A
low-res file may be submitted for judging, but any image selected as a
Finalist must be made available upon request with a minimum resolution
of 6 million pixels (6 megapixels). Entry must also include
photographer's name, mailing address, phone number and date of birth. A
photo caption is recommended that includes the date the image was taken.
Please review the 2014 SNJB Photography Contest Official Rules for
complete image and entry guidelines prior to submitting a photograph for
judging. All entries become the property of the SNJB and will not be
acknowledged or returned. Good luck!
