Autumn is one of the most colorful times of year in the American West, whether it’s the mountain passes bathed in yellow and gold, a big pile of multi-colored pumpkins at the farmers market, or a batch of green chiles getting ready for the roaster. For the next six weeks we want to celebrate the colors of fall with our photo contest, and this week, the theme is green.
Don’t limit yourself to the obvious and literal — show us your creativity. As always, please post your photos to our Facebook timeline before midnight next Wednesday and let us know they’re contest entries. Be sure you own the copyright for the photos you enter, and no more than three weekly entries per photographer, please.
The Rio Nuevo editorial team will announce the weekly winner next Friday. Please spread the word so your friends can vote for their favorites for the people’s choice award. That winner will be announced at the end of the six-week contest, along with a grand prize winner chosen from the weekly winners.
Encourage your photographer friends to enter, too. The more the merrier! Each weekly winner will receive a book from the Rio Nuevo catalog, and the grand prize and people’s choice winners will receive an assortment of books along with a profile story on our blog.
Let the fun begin!
