HAVANA TIMES — After a great response in 2012, the time has come to begin our Cuba HT Photo Contest for the year 2013. This is the fifth contest, one for each year of HT.
There are five categories and each carries with it a First Prize of US $75. There will also be two special mentions per category. All finalists and semifinalists’ photos will be published and prominently displayed on the pages of HT.
People of any nationality are welcome to participate.
Here are the five categories for photos taken in Cuba:
1) LINES (queues), any and all types of lines photographed on the island.
2) TRANSPORTATION, any and all types of transportation used on the island.
3) RAIN, any photo taken of a rain scene in Cuba. (Be careful not to damage your camera trying!)
4) DANCE, anything related to dance in Cuba.
5) GARDENS, any and all types of gardens in Cuba.
Each entering photographer can send a maximum of three photos per category.
Photos must not be larger than 250 kb and sent in .jpg format. All larger photos will not be accepted.
Each photo should have a short caption as its title. It can be in English or Spanish.
A Havana Times jury of at least 20 photographers, writers, translators and guest readers will judge the photos and, as in our first four 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 and in the social networks where HT has a presence.
The deadline for submitting photos is September 15, 2013. We will announce the winners by October 31, 2013. To submit photographs or for more information write: [email protected].
