We’ve become a society of shutterbugs, constantly taking pictures with our cell phones and digital cameras, then sharing them all over the web.
Well, Fresnans, you now have one more place to share your photos. And this one comes with prizes. Picture Fresno launched last week, as a “photo journey of life in and around Fresno.” It plans to host weekly themed competitions. Members of the public, regardless of photo skill and experience, can enter their favorite photos for free and hope they impress Picture Fresno’s panel of judges. (Head over to the site for a more detailed FAQ)
The first week’s theme is “celebration.” The winner gets Fresno Grizzlies tickets and a gift certificate to Yosemite Ranch. Entries are due by 10 p.m. Sunday, so get to snappin’ those pics this weekend.
ELSEWHERE IN FRESNO PHOTO LAND
Today The Bee launched a new photo site of its own — Picture This. You can check out galleries from our staff photogs, watch videos, download wallpapers and buy prints. I suggest you check out the panoramas, like this one of the underground gardens.
