It seemed like spring would never get here. But after a few warm days recently, spring flowers started exploding in cheery blooms.
We invite you to celebrate by capturing that beauty on camera and entering our Spring Flowers Photo Contest.
Contest sponsor Fort Wayne Trees will provide prizes for the best three photos — gift cards for use at the business in the amounts of $100 for first place, $50 for second place and $25 for third place.
We'll select the winners based on photo quality and composition. The photos must be taken this spring and must show a landscape or wild flower, group of flowers, or flowering tree or shrub. No altered photos, please.
To enter, send your photo as a high-resolution (300 dpi), JPG image to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You must be a northeast Indiana resident to enter. Enter only one photo per person. Please include your name, address, daytime phone number and a brief description of when and where you took your photograph. Participants give us the right to archive the photos for possible future use.
Entry deadline is 5 p.m. May 19. We plan to publish the winning photos in The News-Sentinel on May 26. We will try to post entries on our website as we receive them, so keep checking www.news-sentinel.com.
