The society’s first contest — for which Ryan Sutton’s “Bird Rock at Night” won first place — was a huge success with more than 100 entries. Awards will be based on originality, imagination and the captivation of La Jolla’s unique natural, architectural, historic and/or cultural character.
Photo entries will be accepted at the La Jolla Historical Society offices, 7846 Eads Ave., Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The last day to enter is May 11.
The rules for entering a photo have changed. Each student may enter one photo, which must be the property of the student and may not have been previously published. Entries may be any size and may be color or black and white.
The photo must be mounted on an 11-by-14-inch black matte labeled with the student’s name, school and grade. Attached to the mounting should be a CD with the image, minimum 300 DPI in JPEG, TIFF or PDF. Entries must include a signed participation waiver.
Photo entries will join the tens of thousands of photos in the archives of the La Jolla Historical Society, preserving La Jolla for future generations, and may be published with attribution and without compensation.
