Whether you’re an amateur photographer or just happen to be at the right place at the right time, we’re looking to highlight your photos for our In Focus feature in the Sunday Variety section. Each week features a different theme, and we select the best photos submitted to run in the newspaper, with more photos in a gallery on startribune.com. Upcoming topics include:
Summer treats, nature-style: Summer treats mean different things to different people. While some think popsicles, other think birds, turtles and fairy gardens. Send us a picture of what nature’s summer treats means to you. Deadline: July 7.
Dog days of summer: It’s the middle of summer. You’re hot, your dog is hot. How does your pooch beat the heat in the summer? We want to see pictures. Deadline: July 14.
Minnesota festivals: Chances are if your town has a festival, there’s a parade. And everyone loves a parade, right? Send us candid shots from your town festival — either this year or in years past. Deadline: July 21.
Garden bounty: Have a zucchini that’s bigger than your child? Tomatoes out of control? Show us how your garden grows. Deadline: July 28.
To submit a photo: Send high-resolution photos from to firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the category in the subject field. Please include your name, hometown and as much information as possible with your picture.
Now grab your camera (or phone), and get snapping!
