The contest will run from March 10 through April 29, 2011. Entries will be judged by a local panel, and finalists in each category will be displayed at downtown businesses where citizens of AlbanyCounty will be encouraged to vote for their favorite photo. The photos will be in downtown businesses from May 9 through May 20, 2011. The voting results will then be used as part of the formula to select the winning entries. The winning photos will be announced in the Laramie Boomerang during the week of May 23, 2011.
Acceptable entries must be original photographs taken in AlbanyCounty in the last two years (from 2009 to 2011). Entries will be judged in the following six categories that represent the spirit and people of AlbanyCounty: Landscape; Wildlife; Winter Activities; Summer Activities; Building/Museums; and Western Heritage. LakeMarie and MedicineBowPeak are in CarbonCounty, but very spectacular from the Albany side, so photographs taken of LakeMarie and MedicineBowPeak from the AlbanyCounty side will be accepted.
