Call for entries: CRU annual photo contest

CRU Photo contest now accepting entries…


CRU is proud to announce its annual photography contest, in which we solicit the work of professionals, passionate amateurs, and students alike. This year, we are asking for entries in three different subject categories:

PEOPLE. Capture the portraits that demonstrate the breadth of expression and emotion the human spirit can evoke.

STREET. Show us the beat from the street. The faces, activities, encounters, and candid moments that comprise the urban environment.

NATURE. Mountainscapes, gardens, waterways, weather, the sky-choose your best shots to illustrate the grandeur of nature.

Contestants have the opportunity to win storage devices used by professional photographers for storing and backing up their images and client projects.

Contest Guidelines

DEADLINE: December 31st, 2016

The CRU Photo Contest is open to photographers ages 18 and over. Each participant may submit an entry in each of the three categories described above (limit of one per category for a total of up to three total entries).

You may add an optional brief artist’s statement for each of your images.

The contest is open from August 30, 2016 until December 31, 2016.

The Grand Prize and Category winners will be selected by a panel of judges.

The People’s Choice award is given to the image with the most votes determined by number of Facebook likes, so share your entries and recruit your friends to like/vote for your image!

Among the prizes being offered:

A hard drive enclosure with a RAID 1 setting automatically creates 2 backups of your data. This is ideal for offsite storage, large file sharing, and for extra safety in case of drive failure.
