One of the most well-known photographers in history, Mathew Brady once said, “My greatest aim has been to advance the art of photography and to make it what I think I have, a great and truthful medium of history.” Now Pamplin Park visitors of all ages have this unique opportunity to capture their own moment in time and enter to win one of two $100 cash prizes.
Digital photographs only will be accepted. Photos can be uploaded electronically (along with a completed entry form) and submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Entrants may submit photos in one of two categories: professional or non-professional. For the purposes of this contest, a professional is deemed to mean anyone who receives income from their photography and/or services. Participants may submit up to two (2) photographs in one of the two categories. An entry form is required for each photograph.
A panel of judges will select the winners. Winning photographs will be based on overall composition and technical skill. A $100 cash prize will be awarded in both the Professional and Non-professional categories. Additional prizes in each category include Second Prize of a $50 Gift Certificate for use in Pamplin Historical Park’s Civil War Store, and Third Prize of a $25 Gift Certificate for use in Pamplin Historical Park’s Civil War Store. An Honorable Mention prize of a $10 Gift Certificate for use in Pamplin Historical Park’s Civil War Store may also be awarded in the same two categories at the judges’ discretion. Entrants may only win one prize. Pamplin Historical Park reserves the right to not award all four prizes.
