Senior level 4-H members only:  9th-12th graders

2017 Texas 4H Photography Contest Rules (pdf)

Theme:  For 2017 the theme is “Reflections”. These are photos shot off any natural or artificial reflective surface.  A well-excited shot will be able to show perfect symmetry or a slightly distorted shot.  Examples of photographs in the theme would be, but not limited to, photos from lakes, a window pane, a mirror, or a polished/wax car.  4-H members are encouraged to be creative when thinking about reflections in everyday life and where they are seen.

Changes to rules for 2017.  Photos must be 8X10 in size with a quality resolution.  Over the past two years the majority of disqualification in the contest have occurred when the photography is too small to be viewed by the judge when downloaded from 4-H CONNECT.

Additionally, please remember that all photos must be the original work of the 4-H member submitting the photograph.  No photograph can be submitted which has been taken by other 4-H members, a family member, or any printed/digital source.  All photos will be scanned through a reverse image search.

Entry Period:  April 1, 2017 to April 15, 2017 through 4-H CONNECT.  Rules can be found online
