The Lane County Children’s Photo Contest launched in February with a portion of each session booked that month being given to Parenting Now!
The contest judges expression, photography skill and the story told by the photo. It is not a beauty contest. Parents of children ages 3 months to 12 years are eligible for the special rate of $49, which includes the photo session and a photo for a Facebook page. Categories include:
- Six age categories (3-12 months, 1-2 years, 2-3 years, 3-5 years, 6-12 years and siblings)
- Two style categories (traditional and story telling)
The contest continues through March, with awards announced in 38 categories on Saturday, May 10, at Valley River Center.
Parenting Now!, formerly Birth To Three, will receive $25 of each February photo session. The contest continues through March.
Visitors to Valley River Center before May 10 can help to choose the "People's Choice" winner from the photo display at the mall. Parenting Now! also selects one photo to be framed and displayed for a year in the nonprofit’s lobby.
