Southern Exposures Contest Rules:

1) SEPC is open to youth photographers who are between the ages 8 to 18 years old as of the beginning date of the Photo Contest and who have the consent of a parent or legal guardian. Kids can register here:

2) Photographers are allowed to submit up to eight (8) photos in total and allowed to submit more than one photo in any category. Pictures may be of any aspect of nature within the eight (8) counties of South Texas: Brooks, Cameron, Hidalgo, Jim Hogg, Kenedy, Starr, Willacy and Zapata. Respect for animal habitat must be observed. No photos of domestic, restrained, or caged animals will be accepted

3) SEPC opens at 12:01 am Central Standard Time (CST) on June 1, 2018 and the final date for submitting photos is July 31, 2018, at 11:59 pm Central Standard Time. To avoid uploading delays, do not wait until the final days of the contest to enter. In past years, the large number of entrants trying to upload their photos just prior to the final deadline caused technical problems that left them unable to enter. VLF anticipates notifying winners by mid-August 2017 and will be posted on the VLF website. VFL may modify the contest entry period at its sole discretion. More rules can be found here:
