HAVANA TIMES, June 4 — The deadline for entries in the Third Havana Times Photo Contest for pictures taken in Cuba in four categories closes on midnight June 15.

For readers unfamiliar with the contest requirements here is the complete information.

The four categories for submitting photo entries are:

Cubans at Work

The Color Red in Cuba

Cuba’s Beaches

Cuban Women

Each entering photographer can send a maximum of three photos in each category.

Photos must not exceed 250 KB.  All heavier photos will be discounted.

Each photo should have a short caption as its title.

A Havana Times jury of at least 20 photographers, writers and guest readers will judge the photos and, as in our first two contests, we will publish the semifinalists, finalists and prize winners.

In sending us your photos, as a condition you will be giving Havana Times the right to use them in our online publication with your respective by-line.

The First Place photo in each of the four categories will have a US $75 prize and a US $25 Second Prize, as well as a special mention.

Again, the deadline for submitting photos is June 15, 2011.  We will announce the winners by July 31, 2011.
