Calling all photographers! That’s right, it’s time to launch the 2008 version of the Herald-Guide’s Camera Shootout photo contest.

Our competition is open to photographers in St. Charles Parish and all surrounding parishes - and to make sure everyone can join in on the fun, both digital and print formats are approved.

You don’t need fancy gear to compete. Just an eye for great subject matter or, what the hey ... you can do what the rest of us do and just snap a lot of pictures and see if you get lucky.

Submit your scanned or digital photographs to Camera Shootout 2008 to Lifestyles Editor Heather R. Breaux at heatherb@heraldguide.com or mail your prints to Camera Shootout, P.O. Box 1199, Boutte, LA 70039.

Every week the Herald-Guide editors will select the five photos from all submissions received.

These five photos will be published in the Herald-Guide along with your name and put to a reader vote.

After seven days, the photograph with the most votes will be declared our weekly winner. At the end of each month, our editors will choose the monthly winner.

All monthly winners automatically will be eligible for the grand prize vote - and a $500 cash award - when the year’s best photographers are posted in our final reader vote.

So what are you waiting for? Grab your camera and start shooting.
