RANGE Magazine announces Western photo contest
December 9, 2016
Entries are being accepted for RANGE magazine's annual photo competition, Outback Roundup 2017. Deadline for submissions is Feb. 3, 2017. RANGE is an award-winning publication devoted to issues that affect America's ranchers and is the recipient of four consecutive Freedom of the Press awards.
Interested photographers can size up the 2016 competition by visiting http://www.rangemagazine.com. A digital version of the winners can be found in the Summer and Fall 2016 issues, and Winter 2017. Look for entry blanks for Outback Roundup 2017 in the Winter issue or online at http://www.rangemagazine.com. Click on "Win Fame, Glory and Money."
In 2016, competition among photographers was stiff. There were hundreds of entries from 18 states. Winners not only receive cash, recognition in the magazine, on the website and Facebook, but are also eligible for RANGE's Real Buckaroo Calendar or for other special projects, such as the magazine's new book, "Cowboys & Critters." Photographers are compensated, again, for use in other projects. It's definitely a win-win.
Many past photo contest winners are featured in "Cowboys & Critters," a hardbound, 160-page coffee-table edition, which is a photographic tribute featuring 186 wildlife and candid ranch life photos by 65 of the West's best photographers. This book also includes 19 essays from 11 award-winning writers. "Cowboys & Critters" is the 13th major book by RANGE publisher/editor C.J. Hadley.
Cash prizes are: Best of Show, $217; first place, $175; second place, $150; third place, $125; and merit awards, $50. Winners will be announced and displayed at the photo symposium, "Shooting the West," in Winnemucca, Nev., on March 10 and will be showcased in the magazine. (You need not be present to win.) RANGE also enters some photographs into journalism competitions; no prize money, but a win adds to a photographer's reputation.
