Georgia Living – Photography Entry Deadline
Sep 8 @ 11:59 pm

Some things to remember when submitting your entries:
A title is required for each photo. Keep in mind that photos are judged on the image and not on the title. Long titles will not be as easily read when your photo is displayed, as the type will be smaller.
NOTE: “Untitled” is not an acceptable title.
Title of photo, division, class, and photographer’s name must be written clearly on the back of photo in the upper right corner.
Originality is a plus. You want your photo to stand out among all of the others.
