WINNERS AND HONORABLE MENTIONS: Midwest Photo Exchange will select a professional photographer to choose Grand Prize and Second Prize winners from all of the approved entries. The Third Prize winner will be selected by popular vote via the Midwest Photo Exchange website and Facebook Page. Winners of previous contests during the same calendar year are not eligible to win. SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS: The submission period will run through December 27 at 11:59 PM EST. Use the entry form to submit your photo. Include your name, email and the title of the photograph. Entries are limited to one per person. You cannot submit two photos with the same email address. Entries must be the photographer's own work. Images must be JPEG (at least 1000 pixels by 1000 pixels) and must have a direct correlation to this month’s theme in order to be approved for entry. Photos must be approved, and Midwest Photo Exchange reserves the right to disqualify a submission at any time, for any reason. You will be notified via email if your submission has been disqualified. Please note that submission approval can take at least 1 business day, and an entry will only appear in the contest module once it has been approved. PRIVACY POLICY: By submitting a photo, participants agree to the use of credited images in Midwest Photo Exchange social media, including the winning images, photo of the day, staff favorites, and honorable mentions. Midwest Photo Exchange may use participants’ email addresses to correspond about competition entries. If participants do not opt out to receive company newsletters from Midwest Photo Exchange, we will add participants’ email addresses to the MPEX newsletter list. Participants may opt out at any time.
