Enter Oregons International Air Show photo contest

Air show also introduces Instagram photo contest


The Oregon International Air Show will host the third annual photo contest and first annual Instagram photo contest.

This year’s photo contest invites contestants to submit their best photos from the 2013 Oregon International Air Show that capture the themes “In the Air,” “On the Ground,” “Best Overall” and “People’s Choice.”

Photos entries for “In the Air,” “On the Ground” and “Best Overall” will be judged by a panel of seven judges that consists of members of the local business community, air show board, air show staff and volunteers taking part in this year’s air show. The judges will base their decisions upon originality, perspective, image quality, emotion and how well the theme and air show are captured.

The “People’s Choice” entries will be released to the community and the winners will be chosen by the public. Prizes will be awarded to the top two photos submitted for each category.

The first-place winner in each category will receive two complimentary VIP passes to the 2014 Oregon International Air Show as well as a framed 11 by 17 print of their winning photo.

The second-place winners will receive a framed 8 by 10 print of their photo. All awards and tickets will be presented at the Checks for Charity event that takes place in December.

n Photos submitted must be the property of the contestant

n Photos must be in JPG file format, minimum file size 1024 pixels (2 MB).

New to the Oregon International Air Show this year is the Eagle Eye Instagram Photo Contest. The Instagram photo contest will be run through the air show’s Instagram account, @OregonAirShow.

Topics will be posted on the Instagram account leading up to and during the air show using hashtags (e.g., #patriotsjets, #airshowfood, etc.). To participate in the Instagram photo contest, participants will need to photograph things that represent the topics and post them to Instagram using the topic’s hashtag, the hashtag #EagleEyePhotoContest and tagging @OregonAirShow in the post.

The air show team will select the winners based on their ability to best represent the air show topics. Winners will receive air show merchandise including signed posters as well as the opportunity to win premium seating for the 2014 air show.
