Abstract

Grand Forks, N.D.—The Center for Rural Health at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences and the North Dakota Rural Health Association are seeking submissions for the annual photo contest to celebrate National Rural Health Day, which takes place on November 19, 2015.

All North Dakotans are invited to participate by submitting a photo of what rural means to them. Photos must be taken within North Dakota. Images must be royalty-free. By submitting a photo, you understand you have the right and permission of the owner of the photo to use it for this contest. Photos not meeting this requirement will not be eligible for prizes and will be disqualified from the National Rural Health Day Photo Contest.

Prizes will be awarded to the top three photos in each of the two divisions. In the Adult (18-years-and-older) division, the first-place winner receives a $150 Cenex gift card, second place a $100 Cenex gift card, and third place receives a $50 Cenex gift card. In the Youth (17-years-and-under) division, the first-place winner receives a $100 Amazon gift card, second place a $50 Amazon gift card, and third place receives a $25 Amazon gift card. Contest winners will be notified after National Rural Health Day (November 19, 2015). If the Center for Rural Health is unable to reach the winner, the entry will be forfeited, and the Center for Rural Health may choose a different winner. All photos will be posted on the Center for Rural Health’s Facebook page and website.

A panel of judges from the Center for Rural Health and the North Dakota Rural Health Association will critique the photos based on creativity, originality, photo quality, how well it communicates the concept of “rural health,” and overall appeal. There will also be a public vote on the top 10 photos in each division held on National Rural Health Day.

Submissions of photos will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. (CST) on Friday, November 13, 2015. Citizens within North Dakota are eligible to enter the contest. Each photo and caption is one submission; however, you may submit as many photos as you would like. All photos must have been taken in North Dakota.

To submit a photo, send a high-resolution version of the photo in a JPEG, GIF, or TIF file format to kylie.nissen@med.und.edu. Include a caption of the photo, any other information you would like included about the photo, your name, e-mail address, and phone number. Terms of use for the photo contest can be found on the Center for Rural Health’s website.

The National Rural Health Day efforts for North Dakota are facilitated by the Center for Rural Health and are supported by the North Dakota Rural Health Association. To learn more about National Rural Health Day, visit www.celebratepowerofrural.org.
