65th Anniversary Digital Photo Contest
65 years ago we opened our doors to share our passion and talent with Southeast Alaska. We’re celebrating our anniversary with a special theme for this year’s digital photo contest.
This Year’s Theme: Motion
Our work is always in motion, from the gears of the printing presses to our ability to embrace and share new opportunities for print and media. To us, celebrating 65 years means celebrating still being in motion!
The subject, composition, and how you represent motion are all up to you. Your photo will be judged based on how well you use the theme in your photo.
