PORT CLINTON, Ohio — The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) has announced its youth photography contest.
“The shooting sports mean something different to all of us, but we can all agree that they certainly have some sort of impact on our lives,” read a CMP news release. “We would like to see how the shooting sports have impacted yours, whether through the People who have influenced you, the Places where you grow as a competitor or through the Things that you use.”
“This competition is all about your personal views of the shooting sports and we would love to see the variety and positivity that shooting has brought to the lives of our young supporters.”
The CMP photography contest began on Sept. 30 and will continue through Nov. 15. During that time photographers may submit photos in each of the three categories: people, places, things.
In order to enter, simply snap a photo and sent it to JSlosnerick@thecmp.org with a maximum size of 4MB. Photos that have undergone major editing will not be eligible for competition.
Submitted photos must include the photographer’s name and a photo caption. Contest rules can be found HERE.
All photos that are submitted by Nov. 15 will be pre-selected by CMP Staff, with the top 25 in each category released for voting on the CMP Facebook page. Voting will end on Monday, Nov. 30.
Winners will be eligible for a cash prize and could land the cover of CMP’s junior magazine, On The Mark.
