Snap Shots 2020
Win $10 If Your Photo Is Printed In Country Lines Magazine

1. Each member whose submitted photo is printed in Michigan Country Lines will receive a $10 bill credit the following month. Up to $50 per month will be awarded!

2. Send us your BEST photos. We will consider the first three sent in by any member for each monthly theme, so pick out and share the ones that really illustrate the subject.

3. Digital photos should be a minimum of 600 kb, preferably 1 mb or larger.

4. Additional submissions, or smaller photos, may be used in the monthly Snap Shot spotlight on our Facebook page, but will not be eligible to win a bill credit.

Click here to submit your photo electronically. (A new page will open with the submission form.) Please make sure your photo is in .jpg, .png, or .tif format, and is at least 600kb in size. A larger photo file (1-2 mb) is preferred to reproduce well when printed on the magazine's pages.

Include your name, mailing address, service address (where you receive electricity from HomeWorks), phone number, photographer’s name and details about your photo. Identify the people left to right and tell us their relation to you.

Please read the Terms and Conditions/Photo Release, and be sure to check the box on the submission form that you have read and accepted them.
