Hey shutterbugs, we’re sponsoring the Photo of the Year 2006 amateur photo contest to benefit the MESD Outdoor School here in Portland. The deadline for submissions is December 31, 2006. Enter your photographs in the following categories: Scenery, Adrenaline, Faces and Youth. After entries are narrowed down to the top 150 (by a panel of judges organized by Uncage the Soul Productions), finalists will be posted online to be voted on by the public. The winner will receive a $500 cash prize, and second and third place will each get $100. A gala event to announce the winners will be held January 28, 2007 with proceeds from ticket sales going to a great cause: MESD Outdoor School.
