This week on our sister site, Tahoe Unveiled, we highlighted a photography contest sponsored by Tahoe Unveiled in collaboration with Theilen Photography - and we are participating as one of the judges! See below for all of the details.
Wedding photography takes enormous amounts of dedication. It’s not about the type of camera you have or what lenses you use; it’s about YOU, the photographer! It’s about the time it takes to get to know a couple and capture some of their most intimate moments. We want to celebrate our love for wedding photographers. We will be compiling a collection of the most stunning 20 images and a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Submit your best Lake Tahoe wedding photographs to our very first Best of the Lake contest.
Submissions | Please email your most creative and gorgeous wedding photos to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Lake Tahoe Wedding Photos”. Please label your photos with a keyword and a number so your photos are kept anonymous from the judges.
Image Sizes | Please send up to 5 .jpg images that are 600 pixels on their longest side, without watermarks. Images can be placed in a .zip file that is no larger than 10MB.
Processing | 5 photos per photographer may be submitted for free, or a processing fee of $5 per photograph will be charged for submissions of 6 – 15 images. Please let us know if you would like to submit more than 5 images and we will send you a Google checkout.
Eligibility | Open to everyone, 18 years of age or older at date of entry. Photographs should be from a real wedding that took place in Lake Tahoe who are your clients.
