Attention all photographers: The American Sheep Industry Association (ASI) is hosting its 2009 Photo Contest. The contest is open to all who wish to enter, which means you do not have to be involved in the U.S. sheep, lamb or wool industries to participate. The only rule is that your photograph must include sheep. Entries must be postmarked by Sept. 1, 2009.
Entries will be judged on clarity, content, composition and appeal. More than $1,000 will be awarded, with awards of $125 going to the grand-prize winner in each of the four categories listed below; $75 for the first runner-up in each category; and a $50 prize for the second runner-up in each of the four categories.
The four categories are action, scenic, people and sheep, and open.
Additional details can be obtained by going to www.sheepusa.org.
