UIRA’s Travel Photo Contest, inaugurated last year and attracting more than 50 entries, will continue for the second year. Most of the rules remain unchanged.

There will be three categories: photos taken (1) in the state of Iowa; (2) in the USA outside Iowa and (3) outside the USA. Prizes will be awarded in each category. Entrants may submit no more than three photos in one or more of the three categories. There is no entry fee. Current UIRA members are eligible to participate. The deadline to submit entries is December 31. Photos must be submitted in digital format and will be judged on originality, creativity and photo quality. Photos taken over the past two years can be entered.
