The Charlotte News invites amateur photographers of all ages to enter its 11th Annual Peter Coleman Photo Contest, held in honor of the renowned Charlotte photographer and one-time editor of The News who passed away in January 2006.

There are four categories this year: “What’s hot in Charlotte,” “Animals,” “Charlotte Faces” and “Charlotte Landscapes.”

Please limit your entries to no more than one per category with a maximum of three photos per person.

The deadline for submissions is July 27. Winning photographs will be printed in our August 11 issue and displayed at Town Hall.

Send full-size, high-resolution .jpg files directly to with the subject line “Photo Competition 2016.”

In the email, include a name for each photo and a description of the subject/location and the date taken along, with your address, telephone number and age if under 18.

Editor’s note: By submitting a photograph you will be giving The Charlotte News permission to print it in the paper, on its website and on its Facebook page. Please obtain permission for publication from any person or the parents of children photographed.
