Air Force photo contest begins, theme is “Freedom”

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-LACKLAND, Texas (AFNS) -- The 2018 Air Force photo contest, managed by the Air Force Services Activity, officially began May 1, 2018.

This year’s theme is “Freedom” with the contest running through May 31.

“Freedom is the power or right to act, speak or think and holds a different meaning and feeling to all of us,” said Darlene Johnson, AFSVA Community Programs Branch chief. “During this contest, participants can express how they view Freedom through their camera lens and capture that moment in time forever.”

The photo contest is part of the Air Force’s arts and crafts program which develops the skills and creative abilities of Airmen and their families by getting them involved and connected through photography, said Jon Grammer, AFSVA director of programs.

“The program directly supports three (of the four) pillars of Comprehensive Airman Fitness by providing mental, social and spiritual development for a more resilient Air Force,” Grammer said.

Participants can submit photos at http://www.myairforcelife.com/arts/photo-contest.aspx. The contest is open to authorized patrons of Air Force morale, welfare and recreation programs, and is divided into adult and youth categories.

The adult category has novice and accomplished divisions. The youth category is separated by three age divisions: children (6-8), pre-teens (9-12) and teens (13-17).

Participants can submit up to two original images in a JPEG or JPG format; only online entries are eligible. The file size must be between 3 and 8 MB.

Winners will be announced in July, Johnson said. Amazon gift cards will be awarded to the top three winners in each division, with first place winning $400; second place $300; and third $200.
