The Reporter wants to see what you can do with a camera. To coincide with PhotoVentura 2007, the Reporter is holding its annual photography contest, and everyone is invited to enter.

Photographs must be recent and have not been submitted to a previous Reporter photo contest. Subject matter and location are unlimited. Individuals are limited to three submissions each. Please send us your best prints (slides and digital files aren’t accepted, but prints of digital photos are).

Four categories — professional color, professional black and white, amateur color and amateur black and white — will be judged. Sorry, if you”ve been paid to take pictures for the Reporter, you can’t enter. Winning photographs and runners up will be published in the Oct. 25 issue of the Reporter.

Each image must have the photographer’s name, address and phone number on the back (a maximum of three per entrant), and please include a brief note describing your experience.

We will not return entries so please don’t send us originals you can’t spare. Photographers who have ever been paid by the Reporter are ineligible. Past contest winners and entrants, however, are welcome.

ENTRIES MUST BE RECEIVED BY THE REPORTER NO LATER THAN WEDNESDAY, OCT. 17.
