For the fifth year, the Valley Record is opening its pages to the best vistas that locals can capture on their cameras.

Amateur adult and student photographers are invited to share their work, emphasizing scenic views of local geography, wildlife and nature, in the fifth annual Scenic Photo Contest.

Young people, up to age 17, can also submit their scenic works in the student category.

Prizes include a camera bag, a tripod donated by Omega Photo in Bellevue, and more.

To submit your photos in the contest, e-mail them to and clearly mark them as contest photos. Submitted photos should be at least 72 dpi and at least 14 inches wide by 11 inches tall. Limit your submissions to three photos. Entries must be received by Wednesday, Feb. 8.

The newspaper reserves the right to publish any photos submitted to the contest in future projects.
