Lottery On Look-Out For Great Outdoor Shots
Wanted: a few good photographers with a penchant for the great outdoors! The Missouri Lottery’s 2005 Calendar Photo Contest kicked off today with the theme "Missouri Great Outdoors." If your lucky snapshot is selected, you could win the grand-prize digital camera or one of 12 first prizes consisting of 100 Scratchers tickets. All 13 winners will receive a photo credit next to their photo and a free calendar.
"We’ve been holding calendar photo contests for the past three years, and this will be the fourth contest," said Nancy Rollins, marketing manager for the Missouri Lottery. "It’s a lot of fun for photographers, and it allows us to showcase Missouri."
Rollins said the calendars are distributed to Missouri Lottery retailers to hang in retail locations.
Photographers must submit their original photos and contest entry form to a lottery office by 5 p.m. July 30. Mail entries must also be received by that date. Entries can be mailed to: Missouri Lottery, P.O. Box 1603, Jefferson City, Mo., 65102-1603.
