Yankee Magazine Now Accepting Submissions for 2012 Photo Contest: My Hometown
Show us what makes your hometown special for a chance to be published in Yankee
DUBLIN, New Hampshire (July 11, 2012)—Yankee Magazine is accepting submissions now through October 1, 2012, for their 2012 Photo Contest. This year’s theme is “my hometown.” The winning photos will be featured in Yankee’s March/April 2013 issue, and photographers will win cash prizes for 1st Place ($500), 2nd Place ($300), and 3rd Place ($200). Honorable mention winners may also be published.

Submitted images should capture the essence and spirit of the photographer’s New England hometown—whether native-born, or adopted—through its landscape, its people, or a local event. Photographs will be judged based on creativity, composition, and the ability to capture a strong sense of place. Previously published or awarded photographs are not eligible for this contest.

Submissions must be taken in one of the six New England states between June 15, 2010 and October 1, 2012, to be eligible to win. GIF, JPEG, or PNG files up 10MB in size, but no larger than 2100 pixels high by 2100 pixels wide in dimension will be accepted. Only photographs submitted through YankeeMagazine.com/HometownContest will be considered for the contest. Photographs sent via mail will not be entered into the contest and cannot be returned to senders.

Finalists must be able to provide Yankee with a print quality hi-res file of their photograph. Each individual may submit up to five photographs. The editors of Yankee Magazine will select and notify the winners by November 15, 2012.

Founded in 1935 and based in Dublin, New Hampshire, Yankee is the only magazine devoted to New England through its coverage of travel, home, food, and feature stories. Breathtaking photography that captures life in New England is prominently featured in every issue. With an average circulation of 350,000 and a total audience of nearly 2 million readers, it is published by Yankee Publishing Incorporated (YPI), a family-owned, independent magazine publisher.
