Scenes and Still Life
Class Overlooked By Camera Fans Few Amateur Pictures Are Received From Division by Judges With The Star’s amateur snap shot contest swinging into high gear and scores of pictures pouring in to the judges, there is real oppor tunity for camera fans to invade one of the four classes which so far has been largely overlooked—“scenes and still life.” This is Class “C.” The rules of the contest define “pictures judged for scenic or pictorial appeal, land scapes, marine viewi street scenes, buildings or unusuaf still-life sub jects, including table top or minia ture arrangements.” Another full page of pictures is published in The Star Rotogravure Section today. Tlte Star pays $5 for the best picture published each week and $2 for every other picture published. At the close of the con test $25 will be paid to the final winner in each of the four groups, and these four will compete for na tional prizes totaling $10,000. The grand prize winner gets $1,500. The rules are as follows: 1. The contest is strictly for ama teurs. Any one is eligible ex cept employes of The Evening Star and their families and individuals or members of fam ilies engaged in the manufac ture, sale, commercial finish ing or professional use of photographic goods. 2. Entrants may submit as many pictures as desired at any time during the period of the con test. (See paragraph 6.) 3. Pictures must have been made after May 12, 1940. 4. Your snapshots may be made on any type of film, but must not be made on glass plate negatives. Any make of camera, film, chemicals or paper may be used. Developing and print ing may be done by a photo finisher or the entrant. No print or enlargement more than 10 inches in the longest dimen - sion will be accepted. No art work or retouching is permit ted on prints or the negatives from which they are made. No composite pictures, such as multiple printing or montages, permitted. Pictures should not be mounted or framed. B. All pictures shall be judged in the National Awards (includ ing the United States and Can ada) solely on general interest and or appeal. Photographic excellence or technique, while important, will not be the de ciding factor in determining prize winners. The decision of the judges shall be accepted as final. 6. Before receiving The Star's final prize of $25 in one or more of the four classifications, the entrant must submit the orig inal negative with print and sign a statement that his pic ture or a closely similar picture of the same subject or situa tion has not been and will not be entered by him in any other snapshot contest or salon other than the one conducted by this newspaper, and has not and will not be offered for publica tion in any manner. 7. To enter the contest, mail a print or prints of as many pic tures as you desire to “Ama teur Snapshot Contest Editor,” The Evening Star Washington, D. C. On the back of each pic ture print your name and ad dress clearly in ink and the class in which you wish the picture entered. (See classifi cations.) 8. No prints will be returned. Do not submit negatives with your prints. Keep them until re quested by the Amateur Snap shot Contest Editor. (Only original negatives accepted.) This newspaper assumes no responsibility for negatives. 8. Each week The Star will pay $5 for the best picture pub lished and $2 for every other picture published. In addi tion, at the close of the con test. $25 will be paid to the final winner in each of the four classifications listed be low. These four winners then will be entered in the National awards, where they wall com pete with the same number of entries from other newspapers in the United States and Can ada, for prizes totaling $10,000.
