2016 Photo Contest

Southeastern Geographer announces the 1st Annual Cover Art Photo Contest

For several years now, each issue of the journal has featured a photograph and a short cover art essay by a member of SEDAAG. Starting at the 2016 SEDAAG meeting in Columbia, South Carolina, Southeastern Geographer will hold a photo contest to select the covers for the 4 issues coming out in the following year. The photos will be judged by conference attendees; ballots will be distributed with SEDAAG registration packets and attendees will be asked to vote by noon on Monday. The winners will be announced at the awards banquet.

To enter a photo in the contest:

Send by email a digital photograph and a maximum 150-word description of the geographic phenomenon captured or evoked in the photograph to SEDAAG Program Committee chair Andy Walter (awalter@westga.edu) by midnight on October 21, 2016. Please indicate “SEDAAG Photo Contest 2016” in the subject line.

  • For the SEDAAG meeting, bring a high-quality print of the photograph on 8×11 photo paper, and the 150 word abstract on a separate 8×11 page, using this MS Word conference template for photo.
