What to enter

In support of People For Puget Sound’s 20th anniversary celebration, We Are Shouting, A Seattle based production company, is producing Sound and Vision, a feature-length documentary film that examines ongoing efforts to sustain and restore Puget Sound ecosystems. The film, composed of a series of vignettes, invites viewers to engage in a conversation about the problems facing Puget Sound, and offers practical ways to get involved in the movement to cleanup and protect our waterways. Running in parallel with the release of the film, the One Puget Sound photo contest seeks to use photography as a catalyst for this conversation, attracting the voices of many individuals to engage in a dialogue about the problems and innovative solutions that exist in Puget Sound.

The competition asks photographers to explore the idea of Landscapes in Transition and will solicit submissions that express the range of variations in Puget Sound. It will seek submissions that visualize the beauty of both natural and built spaces of The Sound, including the transitional spaces where the damage done to the marine environment is being combated in interesting and innovative ways.

Submission conditions

The One Puget Sound Photo Contest is open to ALL photographers at least 18 years of age, except employees of People For Puget Sound and the immediate families of such employees. The Contest is open to all participants regardless of residence or citizenship, so long as the laws of their jurisdiction allow participation.

Please do not include photographs of pets or domestic animals. Images of captive animals photographed in zoos and commercial game farms are also prohibited, however, photos from state and national wildlife preserves are allowed. If you choose to include people in your submission, you are responsible for obtaining the necessary releases from the individuals depicted, and must be able to provide copies of those releases to People For Puget Sound upon request. Entrants must not submit images that involve the willful harassment of wildlife, damage to the environment by the photographer, the taking of risks, or that infringe on the rights of any other photographer or person.

All photographs should accurately reflect the subject matter and the scene as it appeared. Photos that have been digitally altered beyond standard optimization (removal of dust, cropping, reasonable adjustments to exposure, color and contrast, etc.) will be disqualified. Multiple exposures that have been combined to produce a single "High Dynamic Range" image are acceptable. Images that do not meet these requirements may or may not be judged at the judging panel's sole discretion.

All photographs will be credited with the caption "© Person's Name." People For Puget Sound has final approval of any language that appears on its web site with any of the photos and will not promote or endorse third-party products or services.
