2005-2006 Oregon Blue Book Cover Photo Contest
Secretary of State Bill Bradbury is excited to announce the Oregon Blue Book Cover Photo Contest. The State Archives, which publishes the Oregon Blue Book, is seeking color photos that represent some aspect of Oregon to grace the cover of the 2005-2006 edition. The contest is open to all amateur photographers who are residents of Oregon, and photographs must be taken in Oregon.
Previous front covers have displayed leaves changing colors at the Japanese Garden, and the Rocking OK Ranch north of Joseph at sunrise on a stormy morning. Previous back covers include the North Falls at Silver Falls State Park, and driftwood at Cape Kiwanda. This year, special consideration will be given to photos with a Native American theme.
Entries must be original prints and must not have been previously published. All entries become part of the Archives permanent collection of Oregon photographs, and those not selected for the cover may be used in the Blue Book with full credit to the photographer. Entries must be postmarked by October 5, 2004. A committee chosen by Secretary of State Bill Bradbury will select the winner by January 31, 2005. Questions should be directed to Blue Book Editor at 503-373-0701 ext. 240 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
