Our State North Carolina Photo Contests

Monthly Photo Contests for the magazine ‘Our State North Carolina’
Check out ‘The Photographers Page’: http://www.ourstate.com/mag/photo.html
Here is where you can find an assortment of photo needs not listed on the editorial calendar. Since the content of the magazine is a work-in-progress, we will endeavor to update this page as new articles come in. Incidentally, we work several months in advance and prefer to use seasonal images when possible—please keep this in mind when shooting and submitting photography. Specific needs are listed below:
