Winter Photo Cover Contest
by Luke Osteen
If you’re paying attention, you know that life on the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau offers sights of stunning beauty on an almost daily basis -- especially during this season of wonders.
Whether it’s a moment of transcendence offered by the natural world that’s our heritage, or the frost-pinched faces of our neighbors as they make their way through the winter, there’s beauty all about.
That’s why we’re challenging you to capture an image for our Winter 2021 Cover. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a professional photographer, or just someone who loves to capture the magic of the moment on your cell phone or pocket camera. All you need is a careful eye and the right, glorious moment.
Aspiring cover artists should enter their seasonal and magazine appropriate shots at facebook.com/TheLaurelMagazine by March 31. Submitted photographs should be high resolution (at least 300 d.p.i.) and must be of the Highlands-Cashiers area.
Amateurs, professionals, young and old, are encouraged to join the fun and share the beauty of the season.
Pictures will appear on The Laurel Facebook page and readers can vote for their favorite. The deadline to enter and to vote is March 31 and the winner will be announced on Facebook. The winning photograph will appear on the cover of the 2021 Winter edition of The Laurel.
Visit The Laurel’s Facebook page at facebook.com/TheLaurelMagazine to enter and vote before the March 31 deadline.
So open your eyes and start snapping your way to (Plateau) fame!
