Don’t miss your opportunity to participate in our 2012 Photo Contest! All entries are due by the close of business on Friday, July 27.
The bank is seeking full-color photographs for its 2013 Community Calendar. Local photographers can also vie for the chance to have their photos displayed on MVSB’s website at www.mvsb.com.
As in past years, amateur and professional photographers are invited to submit full-color photographs that capture the character and beauty of Belknap, Carroll and Grafton counties. Photos that convey some aspect of community/family life in the Lakes Region – such as community events, landmarks or seasonal pastimes – are also welcome. Local landscape scenes are highly encouraged – especially for the website.
Winners of the calendar contest will have their photographs featured in the full-color 2013 MVSB Community Calendar, which will be available free-of-charge to the community. Winners of the website contest will have their photos featured as the banner photo that appears on the homepage of the bank’s website. Photographers will be awarded a digital picture frame for each photo that is included in the calendar or featured on the bank’s website.
Photographers may enter both the calendar and website contests, but separate entry forms must be submitted for each contest. In addition, the required format for website entries is different from the format for calendar submissions, so please read the submission requirements for each type of entry very carefully.
All entries are due by the close of business on Friday, July 27.
Only color photographs will be considered for the Community Calendar contest. Black and white entries will not be accepted.
Digital photography is preferred and must be a minimum of 300 dpi at 8” x 10” and saved in tiff, eps or jpg format. They must be submitted as prints, with a disk. Slides or prints (35mm) are also acceptable formats. Prints must have a glossy (not matte) finish. Negatives must be available for all prints that are submitted.
Only color photographs will be considered for inclusion on the website. Entries must be submitted as digital images on disk at a minimum resolution of 72 dpi (higher is preferred) at 968 pixels wide by 212 pixels high. Prints must also be submitted for judging and cataloguing purposes.
All entries must be submitted with an official entry form available at www.mvsb.com/photocontest or at any MVSB branch . The entry forms, photos and disks may be submitted in person at any branch or via mail to “Meredith Village Savings Bank, attn: Marketing, P.O. Box 177, Meredith, NH 03253.” A maximum of five (5) entries may be submitted per photographer.
Judging of all submitted photography will be “blind” and based solely on the suitability of the subject, quality of the photography, and adherence to the purpose of the contest, which is to highlight the unique community character and beauty of the Belknap, Carroll, and Grafton county areas. The name of the photographer will not be known by the judging panel.
Full contest details are available at www.mvsb.com/photocontest or at any office. Offices are located on Route 25 in Meredith, at Olde Province Common on Route 104 in Meredith, across from Shaw’s in Gilford, on Route 25 in Moultonborough Corner, on Route 25 in Center Harbor, on Route 3 in Ashland, inside the Hannaford at Hatch Plaza in Plymouth, on Main Street in Plymouth, in Laconia, at the Alton Hannaford’s plaza near the traffic circle at Route 28 and Route 11, and at the corner of North Main and Endicott streets in Wolfeboro.
Photo Caption: There’s still time to enter MVSB’s 2012 Photo Contest. The deadline for submitting photographs is Friday, July 27. This winning photo of a loon with its babies on its back was taken by Matthew Fassett of Alton Bay, and appears in the bank’s 2012 Community Calendar for the month of July.
