Get those vacation photos in

All the school spring breaks are now over, even Long Lake’s, which was last week. We know those of you who went away took some great photos of your travels. We saw some of those on Facebook, and they looked very cool — or perhaps we should say warm, compared to April in the Adirondacks.

We hope you remembered to take a picture with your copy of the Enterprise.

The Enterprise Vacation Photo Contest has been an annual Tri-Lakes tradition since the early 1990s. You pack a newspaper in your suitcase and then pull it out at some fun moment to take a picture displaying it in your vacation destination.

Don’t let that picture lie dormant in your phone, camera or computer. Now’s the time to put it to use: Submit it to the Enterprise Vacation Photo Contest.

It doesn’t have to be from spring break; you’re welcome to submit photos from other vacations within the last 12 months, as long as a hard copy of the Enterprise is in them.

Our staff will pick three contest winners based on originality, locale and photo quality, and those winners will get Enterprise subscriptions as prizes: three months for third place, six months for second and one year for first.

The deadline to submit photo entries will be Wednesday, May 8 — one week from today. Don’t wait until the last minute; do it right away, while you’re thinking about it.

Our sports/features editor, Morgan Ryan, is the one receiving vacation photos. Please email digital to him at sports@adirondackdailyenterprise.com. Keep in mind that we can’t print low-resolution photos, so please don’t compress them.

If you only have your photo in a hard copy, either drop it off at our office (54 Broadway, Saranac Lake) or mail it to Vacation Photo Contest, Adirondack Daily Enterprise, P.O. Box 318, Saranac Lake, NY 12983. If you want your hard copy returned, make a note of that and include a stamped, self-addressed envelope with your entry, and we will mail it back to you when we’re done.

Include your name, phone number, email address and a caption — a brief description of who and what are in the photo, including the location and the name and hometown of any person pictured. We ask that each household submit no more than one photo.

In May and June, we’ll print as many photos as possible in the paper. We’ll start on Saturday, May 18 with the three contest winners: first, second and third place. We’ll also post each week’s photos on our website under the North Country Living category. You can find that category on our homepage or by clicking “Life” on the menu across the top of our website.

We and your fellow readers are aching with curiosity to see where you went.
