Submissions can be uploaded at www.spokane7.com, and will be displayed on this site. Contestants must own or have permission to their uploaded images.
Images must be in a jpg format. Photos sent through the U.S. Postal Service will not be accepted or returned as this is an online contest only.
Up to 5 photos can be submitted per family each month during the length of the contest. The number of photos submitted will not increase chances of winning.
Submitters must be at least age 18. Current employees of The Spokesman-Review/Cowles Company and their family are welcome to submit photos or essays but won’t be considered for prizes.

The contestant waives any right to royalties or other compensation arising or related to the use of the photograph, and releases The Spokesman-Review, their agents and/or assignees from any and all claims from damages of any kind based on the use of said photographs.
The contest runs from 8 a.m. June 30, until 5 p.m. Sept. 30, 2014. Winners will be selected by a select panel of employees from The Spokesman-Review with training in photography, visual design and/or marketing. Each photo will be judged on how closely they adhere to set guidelines for this contest, including that it is taken at a lake in the Inland Northwest and includes an image of the photographer. Judges’ decisions can also be influenced by quality and composition of the photograph, along with caption information about what makes that particular photo unique and memorable.
Selection will take place at the beginning of each month in the contest period (August, September and October 2014).
