A photo contest was recently announced for the official manual of Missouri –– also known as the ‘Blue Book.’
Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander said the theme for this year’s contest is “A Day at the Park,” celebrating all types of Missouri parks. Kander encourages Missouri residents to celebrate all types of Missouri parks by sharing their photos of favorite locations and memories.
Outstanding photographs will be chosen from three categories –– state and local parks; sports and theme parks; and state historical sites –– and will be published in the 2015-’16 edition.
Entries may be submitted by email (email@example.com) or mailed to: Official Manual Photo Contest; Office of the Secretary of State Division of Publications; P.O. Box 1767 Jefferson City, Mo., 65102-1767.
Participants may submit any number of photographs, but each photo must be accompanied by its own entry form. All entries must be received by 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 7.
Photo contest winners will be chosen through a combination of online voting and selection by a committee within the aecretary of atate’s office. All entries become the property of the office of the aecretary of atate and may be used in subsequent publications, with full credit given to the photographer. All submitted photographs will be added to the permanent collection of the Missouri State Archives, a division of Kander’s office.
