New Format for Western Montana Fair Photo Department

The Western Montana Fair, August 7-12, 2018, in Missoula has updated the format for photo entries this year. There are three divisions: Junior, Showman and Elite, and fewer categories than in the past. You can enter online starting immediately until the deadline of 12 midnight, Friday, July 20, 2018, or until display capacity is reached. Paper entries must be turned in to the office by 5pm, July 20, 2018. Then you can deliver your photograph Friday, July 27 or 28, between 10am and 7pm.

There are also new rules about the photographs themselves:
  • Photos must have been taken after August 1, 2017, so you are submitting recent work.
  • You may only display 2 photos at the fair.
  • Minimum entry size is 8x10 inches (this can be a 5x7 inch print matted to 8x10).
  • Maximum entry size is 24 inches on the long side.
  • All entries must be ready to hang on a hook.
Full details are available on the fair web site here.
