THERE ARE NO CONTESTS RUNNING AT PRESENT. KEEP CHECKING BACK.
waterfalls belong on postcards and we’re up for the challenge!
But we need your help.
Site sponsor Chris Ecklund, webmistress Rose, and Joe Hollick
aka ‘Mr. Waterfall’ have been working together
for awhile now to design a series of postcards featuring Hamilton
area waterfalls. What we need now is input from our site visitors,
Got some great images of Hamilton falls that you have taken yourself?
We want to see them! Should they be especially great shots,
they could end up immortalized on some of the postcards. To
be eligible, the photos must:
been taken by you. Do not send us someone else’s work!
a minimum of 300 dpi. Put your camera setting on a high resolution.
Ask a professional for advice if necessary.
in bmp, .jpg or TIFF format. No gifs, pdfs, or any other file
We're interested in seeing images that are not just your average
waterfall shot. Go for the best lighting, best angle, best
weather conditions. Remember that thousands of people could
end up wearing your picture on their T-shirts and sending it
on a postcard, etc. We want to see only the best.
Photographers whose images are selected will be required to
release all rights to the image. In return, you will be acknowledged
on the postcard itself and recognized as a contributor toward Hamilton’s re-branding as the Waterfall
Capital of the World.
Send your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure
to include your name, mailing address, and phone number in
your email. Deadline for entries is September 1, 2008.
Please note: all contest entries become the property of
the City of Waterfalls site

Calling all Hamilton Waterfall Photographers! We are proud
to announce our first ever "Waterfall Wanted" contest!
The top prize is $1000, and the winning image will appear on
our first ever T-shirt! So get those cameras out and start
snapping away! If you belong to any waterfall enthusiast groups,
be sure to spread the word among the members.
More details to follow. We would like to announce the winner
at our formation meeting, which might have a very special and
celebrated guest of honour in attendance. This individual is
world-famous for his association with water, but that's all
we're going to say right now.... This gives you roughly three
weeks to get your photo entries ready.
The contest is open to all photographers, whether amateur
or professional. The winner will have to sign over all rights
to the picture, which will also be posted on this site.
Deadline for entries is September 1, 2008.
