The annual Star Valley Independent Day in the Life Photo Shoot will take place on Friday, June 12, 2015. The event attempts to capture a day in the life of Star Valley through the eye of a camera lens. The photo shoot is open to photographers of all ages and skill levels. There is no cost to participate.
Photos must be taken during the 24-hour time frame of June 12. The images are then turned in to the business office of the newspaper by Monday, June 15 at 5 p.m. The photos must be in digital format. High resolution images can be emailed to the Star Valley Independent at [email protected] All images must include the name of photographer and their hometown. Youth submissions should also include the photographer’s age.
“Each year the Independent gives photographers of Star Valley the opportunity to capture life in the valley at any time during a 24-hour period,” said Dan Dockstader, publisher and owner of the Star Valley Independent. “We invite photographers to submit photos that depict a day in the life of Star Valley.”
Day in the Life photo submissions are evaluated by the SVI Media staff, based on the criteria of how well the images depict life in Star Valley. The Day in the Life Photo Shoot is not intended to be a scenic image contest. While beautiful scenery is a part of life in Star Valley, the people of the valley and what they do should play a more dominant role in the photos. Selected photos will be included in the June 24, 2015 edition of the Star Valley Independent. A gallery of the photos will also be published on starvalleyindependent.com and Facebook.
