Southwest Metro Photo Contest 2014

It's that time of year again: The Southwest Metro Photo Contest has returned for its fourth year of beautiful photos of our community. This photo contest, presented by Southwest Metro Magazine, showcases the best photographers in our community—not to mention the subjects that give them inspiration.

We're looking for photos that show off Southwest Metro through five categories: Activities and Events, City Landmarks, Wildlife and Nature, Pets, People and Families. We'll accept submissions August 1—August 31, and Readers' Choice voting will take place September 10—September 30. A panel of judges will select the best in each category and announce the winners in October.

Start looking back at your favorite photos from the past year and select some favorites. You'll be able to submit your photos via this page beginning August 1, so keep this address bookmarked. Click here to read the FAQ about the contest, and click here for official contest rules.
