For the third consecutive year, Rural Missouri and Missouri State Parks have teamed up to sponsor the Missouri Snapshots Photo Contest. Amateur photographers across Missouri will have a chance to showcase their talents and win one of five State Park Getaway Packages valued at $500! Rural Missouri Managing Editor Jason Jenkins tells KZIM-KSIM that the first two years it was print photos only, but this year they wanted to expand that to the digital realm with Flickr. Jenkins says the contest features five categories for adults and a category specifically for shutterbugs age 17 and younger, and in all six categories, a first-, second- and third-place winner will be selected. Winning entries will be published in the January 2014 issue of Rural Missouri. Enter at ruralmissouri.coop.
