Chicago Region SCCA Photo Contest, We have some winners!!!
As a throwback to the 1990’s when the Chicago Region held a photo contest, the Activities Committee has established a photo contest as a vehicle to record the Chicago Region’s 75th anniversary year with photographs. We are requesting our membership to take photos at all of our events through the end of October, using a digital camera or their cell phone. The photo categories’ are open to the photographer’s imagination. We are asking for photos of events, meetings, people (group or singles), action photos, quite moments, cars (both street and racecars) just about anything that shows who we are and what we are all about.
We only want digital photos and are requesting these photos are entered by the photographer through our link oh the Region’s website under the “Contact Us” tab then click on “Media Submissions”. This will open the page to allow photo submissions. These photos which are submitted will become property of the Region and can then be used as the Region decides in Piston Patter and or other media promotions moving forward.
So, don’t be left out, there is still time to enter photographs. Beginning with the month of June, a selection committee reviewed the photos and select one as the months out standing photo. The photographer of the monthly photo received a $25.00 gift card. The photos which are selected each month beginning with June and running through the remainder of the year will then also go through a selection process. For the photographer of the photo chosen as the outstanding photo of the year, the Chicago Region will pay the photographer/member’s 2024 annual membership dues.
The Chicago Region has two monthly winners thus far for our Photo Contest. For the month of June, Miroslav Knava, caught an action photograph of the Mini Cooper GP3 at the Autobahn County Club Time Trial on June 9th. Our July winner was Claire Ball, the photograph of his 1967 Camaro SS Pro-Touring Convertible at Watkins Glen International raceway is just what we mean when we say “Fun With Cars”. The photo captured the moment just before entering the race track property for some quick laps on the world famous race track.
Do you have a photo to share, send it in, you could be the next winner.
