General Information
1)   LPC retains the right to use any of the photos submitted in the Best of the Bunch Photo Contest for publishing in print or on the web.
2)   All entries may go on the LPC website and remain on there for one year with your name attached to the entry. We feel that this is a way of “advertising” for your photo(s) and then it’s also like an online “portfolio” for you.
