Most amateur photos of the  historic Lodge will be accepted.  “Anyone age 10 or above is eligible to contribute to this contest,” said Eddy,” Two submissions per person will be allowed and it’s free and open to the public.”

There are a few additional rules to keep in mind regarding the competition.  “We have received several questions regarding copyrights,”said Eddy,” You are handing over those rights and there will be form to complete in order to formally release those.  Another thing is that they won’t get the photos back.  As long as everyone understands that they are handing them over to us permanently, then we look forward to looking over the pictures and deciding on the winners.”

Entries will be accepted through October 1, 2013.  A detailed list of rules can be found by visiting [email protected]
