It’s summertime, and the shootin’ is easy. Shooting photos, that is. The Queens Chronicle’s fifth annual Summer in the Borough Photo Contest is now underway, and you’re invited to join in!
Take your best shots of children playing, workers working, lovely landscapes — whatever you think best says “summer in Queens.”
Our main requirement is that the photos be taken in the borough. We also ask that you give us all the details you can about your submission, especially the location, the names of any people in the photo, whenever possible, and when the shot was taken. Some entrants give us a whole backstory, and that’s never a problem.
And please tell us whether you’re an amateur or professional photographer.
The winner will receive tickets to an off-Broadway show or other family-friendly performance in or around the city, and will see his or her photo published in the Chronicle, just like the above entrants from past contests. Clockwise from above, they are Linda Joblonski, Steve Fisher and Tom Schirling.
So send your high-resolution digital photos to PeterM@qchron.com, or snail-mail prints to Queens Chronicle Photo Contest, 62-33 Woodhaven Blvd., Rego Park, NY 11374. The deadline is Monday, Aug. 26. Good luck!
