Grab your photos and honor Mom in T-G photo contest
Candid moments caught on camera impacted judges evaluating last year's Times-Gazette Mother's Day photo contest.
In one case, a top contender showed a mother and her two children goofing off in a photo booth after a long day of shopping in the mall. Another photo -- ultimately the winning photo -- depicted a mother and her daughters acting silly prior to a professional photo shoot in which the photographer snapped a shot without the subjects realizing.
The T-G will host this contest again this year, with a change that opens the contest up to mothers pictured with any and/or all of their children (sons and/or daughters) of all ages. Readers are asked to submit photos demonstrating that special mother-child bond for a chance to win a great prize and also to recognize their mother in a special section devoted to Mother's Day.
Mommy and me
The deadline for this year's "Mommy and Me" photo contest is Monday, April 30. Photos should be emailed to email@example.com. Entries should include identifications of anyone pictured, a photo description, and contact (including a phone number) information for the person submitting the photo.
This year's contest proves to be as exciting as last year's; the mother in the winning photograph will receive a grand prize, which includes a free one-night stay at Gaylord Opryland, breakfast for two, and a Delta boat ride. The T-G is adding to this enjoyable chance for some much-deserved rest and relaxation by offering $100 cash to the grand prize.
Winners will be announced on Mother's Day, which is May 13. Leading up to that, the T-G will print a special section honoring all contestants Wednesday, May 8.
In addition, we'll extend our salute to all mothers on Mother's Day by sharing at least one story in our Life & Leisure section. We ask readers who would like to share a unique, sentimental or funny story about their mother to contact us by calling Sadie Fowler at 684-1200 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
