“We really appreciate Larry Squire at Computer Doctors on North Ponce de Leon Boulevard for sponsoring this contest with us,” Michael Gold, editor of Historic City News said. “Digital photography today is more than a hobby, since the advent of cell phone cameras and mobile devices with photo-editing software. We look forward to showing off our community’s talents over the next 4 weeks.”

Three judges will be announced at the close of the contest that will evaluate the entries and select a first, second and third-place winner to receive cash and prizes for their winning entries. The contest is open to amateur photographers at least 18-years-old.
