Photo Fun and $500*

Schools Financial's 2019 Photo Contest is open! January 1 – August 31, 2019, submit your beloved scenic photographs from every season — taken anywhere from your backyard to an African safari, and everywhere in between. There is no limit to the number of photographs you may submit.

The member whose photo is chosen as the contest winner will receive a $500 grand prize and get published in our 2020 Member Photo Edition wall calendar! All other photos chosen to appear in the calendar will each be awarded $50.

Submission Guidelines:

  • Submit high resolution (8x10 print quality or higher / 300 dpi) digital photos. Please attach digital photos to the email; do not include photos in the body of your email.
  • Submissions must include your name, phone number and a photo description (Note: Schools Financial will not use your personal information for any reason other than to communicate with you about the contest).
  • Horizontal submissions are necessary for calendar consideration. Vertical submissions can be used in other marketing materials.

A panel of seven judges will choose the photos based on quality, composition, creativity, overall impression and cohesion with other submissions to form a theme. By submitting a photo, you are agreeing to the Official Rules of our Photo Contest.
