Examples of directory covers in past years
Photographers at all TPA member newspapers are encouraged to submit their best work in the 2018 Texas Newspaper Directory Cover Photo Contest. Entries are being accepted through Oct. 13.
Photos should reflect the Texas spirit through landscapes, architecture, festival activities, wildlife and/or nature photography.
The contest is open to all TPA members. Entries must have been taken by a regular staff member or employee of a member newspaper and can include published and/or non-published photographs. Multiple entries by one photographer may be submitted. Please clearly identify the photographer and newspaper and include some information about the subject/event photographed.
Specifications: Photos must be submitted as digital files (minimum 2 MB), either by email or on CD. Vertical images that can be displayed as 8.5 by 11 photos work best for the cover design. Entries should be emailed to TPA Publications Manager Candace Velvin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The winning entry, to be selected by popular vote of TPA member newspapers, will be featured on the cover of the newest edition of the Texas Newspaper Directory coming out in January 2018, with credit to the photographer.
