**CONTEST NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU FOR YOUR ENTRIES
Every month the Editor-in-Chief of Outdoor Photography Canada magazine will assign a photo shoot to all readers. Each month will have a different theme. The participants will have to the end of the month to complete the assignment and upload their image. Each participant can only upload one image per assignment, so make it your absolute best shot. All photographs entered in any Outdoor Photography Canada magazine contest remain the property of the photographer. The photographer, by entering the contest, agrees that his or her photo may be published by SunLight Media Inc. one time as it relates to the contest both in print and on the OPC website. No other usage of any photograph entered is authorized or implied.
The February editor's assignment is to shoot an outdoor image using your bulb setting on your camera at night. Take the photograph with a shutter speed of 30 seconds or more. Your entry must be Canadian. Concentrate on your composition. Only one image from all submitted images will be chosen as the February assignment winner. Each person can only enter one photo. The deadline for this assignment is March 9th, 2013. Anything uploaded after the deadline will be ineligible.
Tips: Types of images you can create are vehicle lights, star trials, moonlit landscapes and shorelines. You are only limited by your imagination.
Prizes: The winning image will be published in the summer issue (July 2013) of OPC and the winner will receive Photographer Noel Chenier’s Photography Assignment Generator App for DSLRs available for your iPad. In addition to this you will also receive an official OPC baseball cap.
