LEO Photography Contest 2012

When we announced plans to eliminate the photography categories from our annual Literary LEO contest, we promised all you shutterbugs out there that your time would come.

Well, we’re not liars, folks, and now it’s your turn:

LEO is accepting submissions for our first-ever photography contest. The winning and runner-up photos will be featured as part of our June 20 issue.

Now get out there and snap some pictures!


Color Photography

Black & White Photography


$125 first place; $75 second place; $50 third place, in each category.

Winners and runners up will be published in LEO Weekly and online at leoweekly.com.


The cost to submit is $5 per category, paid in check or money order to LEO Weekly, with “Photography Issue” noted on the payment line. Entries without payment will be discarded.
