Autumn”s fiery colors herald the changing of the seasons and allow photographers to capture nature”s foliage at its stunning and jaw-dropping finest.
To showcase that, Yahoo News and Flickr are teaming up to create a contest that lets photographers enter their best fall-color snapshots. Possibilities include photography of landscapes, streetscapes, lone trees, massive piles of leaves or anything you think best represents fall’s gorgeous yellows, reds and oranges. Whether your amazing photos were taken last year or last week, from the East Coast to the West, we’d love to see your work capturing the full spectrum of autumn colors.
Enter the contest here.
This is great! Are there prizes?
Yes, one first-place winner will receive a $500 Visa gift card. Four runners-up will each receive a $100 Amazon gift card. All five will win a Flickr T-shirt, with an approximate retail value of $20. The winners and other photos submitted through the contest will be featured in Yahoo News slideshows and Flickr galleries, so you can brag to all your friends.
