For seven days, October 1st-7th, SDPB invites you to submit photographs of where you work, live, and play in South Dakota.
What does being a South Dakotan mean to YOU? Share your images with SDPB!
A panel of distinguished judges will choose winners from the following categories:
Home: It’s a place. It’s a feeling. It’s where and how you live. It’s what you value, no matter where you are.
Work: A third of our life is spent earning a living. Show us how, where and why you work.
Connections: Family, neighborhoods, and geography – many things connect us. Show us how you build community through culture, lifestyle, faith, and technology.
South Dakota: What makes South Dakota unique? Take a picture of a person, place or thing that says South Dakota to you.
Everyone will have a chance to vote for a People’s Choice winner, a chance at cash prizes, and the opportunity to have your photo appear in the 2016 Friends of SDPB Calendar!
The photo contest is open to anyone aged 18 years and older. Photos must have been taken in South Dakota between October 1 and October 7, 2015, and must be submitted online before midnight (Central Time) on Wednesday, October 7, 2015. Judging will take place and winners will be announced on Wednesday, October 14, 2015.
