9)   You may enter without attending AMS, but contestants are responsible for making arrangements in getting their photos there and returned.


  1. All entries must be original “straight out of the camera” photos. Basic color and lighting adjustments only. General category does allow for digital enhancement.
  2. Those entering photos must work for a member publication of LPC (name must appear in the masthead) or be a service member of LPC. Student members of LPC are also eligible to enter.
  3. Any photograph that has won a division in the Best of the Bunch contest previously is not eligible for entry.

Winning photos
1) Each category will pay $100/first; $50/second; $25/third.
2) The LPC Executive Committee has the discretion to select the directory cover photo from the winners of each category.
3) The winner of the “Best of the Bunch” will receive a canvas print of their winning entry.

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 will 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.
