Shutterbugs of all ages and experience get ready! The 2019 Air Force Photo Contest opens May 1.

The annual contest, managed by the Air Force Services Activity, highlights and celebrates photography created by Airmen and their families.

This year’s event features five categories:

Adult categories, for those 18 and older at the time of entry: Novice for new photographers and accomplished for those with knowledge based on training or experience, or those who operate as professional photographers.

Youth categories, based on the age of the photographer at the time of submission: Children for ages 6-8, pre-teens for ages 9-12 and teens for ages 13-17.

With a theme of “Life in Motion,” the program managers at AFSVA hope to top last year’s 1,300 entries.

“This year’s theme gives our photographers great opportunity to be creative,” said Darlene Johnson, AFSVA Community Programs Branch chief. “For example, it can be physically moving like running, walking or riding a bike, or it can be emotionally moving, like when an Airman retires or a child is born. Life is one continual motion of moments and we’re excited to see what’s submitted!”

Once the contest is completed, photo experts will evaluate each entry based on impact, creativity and technical characteristics.

The contest, part of the Air Force’s Arts and Crafts program, runs May 1 – 31 and is open to all authorized patrons of Air Force morale, welfare and recreation programs. Photographers can submit up to two original images in JPEG format at http://www.myairforcelife.com/Arts/Photo-Contest.aspx. Images must be between three and eight MB.

Winners will be announced mid-summer with the top three photographers in each category winning prizes.
