The Buffalo Annual


Magazine Cover

Photo Competition

Will you provide the ‘thousand words’ that will stand the test of time?

The Buffalo* wants the cover of its annual magazine to be special—and you can make that happen. We’re looking for a cover photo that’s vibrant and engaging, a shot of something or someone that captures the Milligan experience of 2012-13.


· DEADLINE for submission: November 1, 2012, 5:00 p.m.

· The winning photographer will receive an award worth $100 and credit in the magazine.

· A photographer may submit up to three photos for consideration.

· Entries must be obviously “Milligan,” whether they present a scene, an event or people. The photo must be taken during the current academic year.

· While “staged” photos are acceptable, candid or other “in situ” photos are preferred.

· High resolution digital format only.

· The winning photo will be used as the main cover image for the 2012 Buffalo annual magazine. (Trim size: 8-1/2 x 11 inches.)

· The photo should provide enough clear background or other “open field” for text and other graphic elements. In other words, please compose the photo with a magazine cover in mind.

· The photographer must supply information about the photo content (who, where, what is happening, etc.). Technical photographic information is welcome but not essential.

· By entering the competition, the photographer agrees to provide The Buffalo first rights for the use of the photo. After the Buffalo 2013 is published, copyright reverts to the photographer, but The Buffalo reserves the right to re-publish the photo in other applications, including (but not limited to) The Buffalo web site, promotional materials, etc.

· The winning photo will be selected by the editors of the Buffalo. All decisions are final.

· Submit entries on a CD or jump drive by November 1, delivered to one of the editors (Tiffany Weinbender or Samantha Baugus), to the faculty adviser (Professor Jim Dahlman), or to Paxson 104.

· For more information, contact Tiffany Weinbender (tkweinbender@milligan.edu), Samantha Baugus (spbaugus@milligan.edu) or Jim Dahlman (SJDahlman@milligan.edu; 423-461-8994).
