The Mast Farm Inn, The North Carolina Blogger Network, and The Professional Photographers of North Carolina, are honored to announce the package of awards and prizes for The NCBN Photo Contest 2015 sponsored by The Mast Farm Inn, with the artistic & technical support of The Professional Photographers of North Carolina Association. This contest is open to both professional and amateur photographers.
The North Carolina Blogger network and The Mast Farm Inn partnered in October 2014 to design, present, and manage The NCBN Photo Contest 2015. If you have been participating in the contest since its launch on January 5th, 2015, you may have noticed how it has gained significant momentum, and is well on its way to becoming highly successful, in fact beyond our expectations. You will also notice that as of Tuesday February 10th, 2015, we have upped the ante considerably in terms of prizes and awards. We have added five cash awards for a total of $2,150 to the initial awards as presented at launch. This is due to the fact that The Professional Photographers of North Carolina has now composed a qualified professional jury, to determine the five winners for the professional jury awards on our behalf. This new capability, to integrate specialized professional photography judges, has not only enabled those awards and prizes, but could also enhance the artistic and creative quality, and the quantity of submissions by professional photographers in our state. The people’s choice award portion remains unchanged. The contest is open for submissions till March 23rd, 2015. Click Here To View, Vote or Enter Contest!
THE PROFESSIONAL JURY AWARDS | Five cash awards, respectively $750, $500, $350, $300 and $250. Winners for the jury awards will be determined by a jury of professional photographers from The Professional Photographers of North Carolina. Winners announced & prizes awarded April 15th, 2015.

THE PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARDS | The winner of the People’s Choice Award will be determined by the number of votes received on the contest page. The winner will receive a gift certificate for two nights’ stay for two at The Mast Farm Inn of Valle Crucis, North Carolina, a world-renowned Historic Hotels of America boutique hotel. This includes a country gourmet breakfast for two each morning, and dinner for two at Over Yonder, one of the Inn’s two restaurants. A $1000 value. Available for reservations any time except for within five days of a national or social holiday, such as the Fourth of July or Thanksgiving. Winners announced & prizes awarded March 31st, 2015.

WIN IN BOTH CATEGORIES | A given photograph or photographer could conceivably win both the people’s choice and one of the five jury awards. This is allowed under contest rules, and if the case presents itself, the photographer will receive both prizes. Winning in one category does not disqualify you from winning in another. The professional judges will judge images on their artistic, creative and technical merits, regardless of the number or lack of votes received. Click Here To View, Vote or Enter Contest.
