Can photographs taken with a 35mm camera be submitted to the contest?
Yes, but the scanned resolution needs to be high enough for printing quality purposes. 300dpi or higher, please.
I shoot 35mm slides, but some of my pictures are in print format, is it ok to send prints or slides?
Please send prints only. We can scan prints without too much trouble, but we do not have a slide scanner. It might be best for you to develop your images or scan them and email to us.
Will my photo get a fair judgment since you prefer digital?
Absolutely, the judges are looking for the best photograph to put in the No Umbrella. They don't care how the image was shot, just that it is good! If your best work is on prints, by all means send it in.
I shoot only print film, should I send the negatives, prints, or both?
Please do not send negatives!
What is the ehtry fee?
$5. Each entrant will also receive a paddling t-shirt.
I shoot mostly black & white outdoor scenic photography, is this acceptable for the contest?

I live outside of the United States can I still enter the contest?
Sure! We accept entries from all over the world, as long as you were in Maine when you took the photo.

Is one type of image or picture composition preferred over others?
No, as long as the photo at least loosely falls into the categories mentioned above.
If I submit several photos, can several photos be considered for "the best"?
Sure, we will consider all submissions, even if you are one of those people who likes all of their shots, and submits their entire portfolio. Please, let's try and keep those to a minimum, as our judges do actually have jobs to go to.
