Did you take a great photo recently that you’d like everyone to see? Maybe you have had a shot come out looking like it belongs in a magazine, but you’ve never entered a contest, or show, and you only do this on the side, occasionally. We can make it easy for you.
While all levels of experienced photographers are invited to enter our annual juried “Photo Shootout”, you only compete against others of your own approximate skill set.
If you are an amateur–never engaging in photography for pay–you will only compete with other amateurs.
If you are a novice, never having entered any kind of contest or show before, your entry fees per photo will be a little less, and your photos will only be judged against those entered in the amateur division.
Advanced amateurs, who sometimes hire out as a photographer, but don’t make a living from it, will only compete against other advanced amateurs. Hence, professionals only compete against other professionals… and children (under age 12) only compete against other children.
If you were worried that you couldn’t put a great photo in the contest because you felt like you don’t stand a chance against folks with lots of experience, and who even sell their photos for money, stop worrying! Show the world the photos that you’re so proud of. It’s you big chance!
Do You Take Some Great Photos? Would you like to show them to everyone and have chance to win a prize?
The Uintah Arts Council’s Annual Juried Photography Shootout is just a few days away. October 6th and 7th are the days to submit your photos (up to 4) for this year’s contest!
You will only compete with other photographers that are at your same approximate skill level… Amateur, Advanced Amateur, Professional, or Child (under 12).
Your photos may be of people, landscapes, plants and animals, or… if you want to have some extra fun, enter in the “theme” category and test your creativity. The theme this year is “Boots, Buckles & Bling”.
We thank you so much for your talent and your willingness to prepare and put yourself through that extremely difficult process. Unfortunately, not everyone that auditioned was selected. If you didn’t make it, don’t be discouraged. There will be other opportunities to audition and you are sure to find your role if you continue to work hard. We so wish that everyone could be in the show, but it’s not financially or strategically possible. Thank you again.
If your name appears on the list, it is critical that you fill out the following response form to let us know if you accept the role you are being offered… or decline it. Be sure to click “Submit” after you fill in the information.
If your name does not appear on the list, please accept our apologies and our thanks.

‘It is the curse of the Pelli- nores,’ he exclaimed. ‘Always mollocking about after that beastly Beast. What on earth use is she, anyway? First you have to stop to unwind the brachet, then your visor falls down, then you can’t see through your spectacles. Nowhere to sleep, never know where you are. Rheumatism in the winter, sunstroke in the summer. All this horrid armour takes hours to put on. When it is on it’s either frying or freezing, and it gets rusty. You have to sit up all night polishing the stuff. Oh, how I do wish I had a nice house of my own to live in, a house with beds in it and real pillows and sheets.”
