2009 Annual Riverfest Photography Contest

The entries for this year’s Riverfest Photography Contest are pouring in here at Douglas Photographic and yours should be among them.  Even if you have never participated in a photography contest before, you could be a winner, but only if you enter.  This contest is open to amateurs and professionals alike, but that does not mean your chances are limited if you are an  amateur.  The Riverfest Photography Contest is judged by the people who will be using the images to promote future events, so the criteria for winning does not depend so heavily on technical ability.  Any image that is creative and “says” Wichita Riverfest has good potential for winning with these judges.

In the promotion of the 2009 Wichita Riverfest about 95% of the photos used were from entries in the previous Riverfest Photography Contests. 

You too, can get some bragging rights by having your photo(s) used in one of the Wichita Festivals publications, and that is not to mention the potential for some prize money.  If you got some great pictures while you were at this year’s Wichita Riverfest; look through them and see if you have any that can fit into any of these eight categories:

  1. Musical Entertainment
  2. Bank of America River Run / Tot Trot
  3. Cultural Events
  4. Sponsorship
  5. New 2009 Festival Events
  6. General Festivals
  7. Fireworks
  8. Kids’ Events/Activities
