Air show photo contest taking off

For the third year in a row, the Oregon International Air Show in Hillsboro will host a photography contest and will launch the first annual “Instagram Photo Contest.”

This year’s contest invites contestants to submit their best photos from the 2013 Oregon International Air Show that capture any of the following themes: “In the Air,” “On the Ground,” “Best Overall” and “People’s Choice.”

Judges will base their decisions upon originality, perspective, image quality, emotion and how well the theme and the air show are captured. The “People’s Choice” entries will be released to the community and the winners will be chosen by the public. Prizes will be awarded to the top two photos submitted for each category.

The first place winner in each category will receive two complimentary VIP passes to the 2014 Oregon International Air Show as well as a framed 11x17 print of their winning photo. The second place winners will receive a framed 8x10 print of their photo. All awards and tickets will be presented at the Checks for Charity event that takes place in December.

New to the air show this year is the “Eagle Eye Instagram Photo Contest.” The Instagram photo contest will be run through the Oregon International Air Show’s Instagram account, @OregonAirShow.

This year’s air show will take to the skies July 26-28 at the Hillsboro Airport.
