The Rockaway Times
Photo Contest Entries
GET SPOTLIGHT AT PLAYLAND
By Katie McFadden
You hit us with your best shots
and now it’s time to choose the
top snaps. The Rockaway Times
received hundreds of entries for
the first Oh, Snap! Photo Con-
test, which ended on April 15.
Photo contest organizer, John
Cori, says there were roughly 400
entries into the contest, which
launched in January. Anyone
had a chance to submit pho-
tos falling under 10 categories,
including 1)Sunsets/sunrise 2)
jetties 3) surfing/ surfers 4) fam-
ily/group fun on the beach 5)
Dogs 6) Jamaica Bay-Boats, jet-
skis, etc. 7) Nature 8) Rockaway
Bridges- Marine Parkway/ Cross
Bay 9) Rockaway/ Broad Chan-
nel Sports 10) Wildcard (doesn’t
fit any of the categories, but it’s a
great photo).
Top prize for the contest is
$500 and front-page recognition
on The Rockaway Times. How-
ever, all of the photos will get
some time in the spotlight. On
Sunday, May 1, from 2 p.m. to 5
p.m., all of the photos will be on
display in 4x6 form, around the
back deck of PlaylandMotel (97-
20 Rockaway Beach Boulevard).
All are welcome to view the en-
tries. During the event, three
anonymous judges, who have
been pre-selected, will select
three of the top photos in each
category, resulting in 30 semi-fi-
nalists.
Cori received permission from
the Parks Department to give the
photos even more of a spotlight.
Larger prints of the top 30 pho-
tos will be framed and put on
display along the boardwalk on
May 28 and 29 for Memorial Day
weekend. They will be on dis-
play again on June 4 and 5. And
on June 6, the public will have
the opportunity to vote on their
favorites and pick the big win-
ner. More details about the vot-
ing process will be announced at
a later time.
