Frankfort Patch editor Joe Vince is off on a weeklong escape from the daily grind, but that doesn't mean the site has come to a grinding halt. That's why he brought me—fill-in editor Luke Wilusz—into the fold to cover for him this week.
But being on vacation doesn't mean he hasn't chosen a few photos for the I Know What You Did This Summer contest. Here are the featured pictures that have earned the shooters some Patch merchandise.
: He posted some great shots of his boys enjoying a time-honored summer tradition: playing with the hose. This photo also was featured .
: What a cute shot! I'm trying to place the establishment? Is that ? Also, Colleen is a big commenter here and on Frankfort Patch's Facebook page.
Just because Joe is gone is no excuse to stop sharing your fun summer photos. We've had some beautiful weather this week, and I highly doubt that nobody has been having any summer fun recently.
There's been a drop in readers submitting their photos for the I Know What You Did This Summer weekly photo gallery and contest, and I haven't had a lot of different pictures to feature. Who has great shots from the Fourth of July? Who wants to show us how they got down during the Frankfort Bluegrass Festival on ? Anyone looking to spotlight some of the great people who helped out during last weekend's Super Sunday?
If the answer to any of those questions is yes, here's what you need to do to post your pictures for the weekly I Know What You Did This Summer weekly photo gallery:
- Photograph you, your friends and/or family enjoying the summer months in Frankfort. It can be out one Sunday evening at . Maybe it's while you're listening to one of the headlining musical acts at the . And yes, it can just be of your kids in the backyard, enjoying the Slip 'n Slide. The only requirements are that it's from this summer (Memorial Day to Labor Day of 2012) and that it shows you doing something in Frankfort. (Note to businesses and village organizations: You can submit your photos from events you organized or sponsored as well.)
- Post your photos in Frankfort Patch's Neighborhood Gallery (you can find it by clicking on the Pics and Clips tab on the homepage) by the deadline each week to be considered in that week (if it's past the deadline, it will be entered for the following week). Make sure your name is in the caption along with what where you're at and what you're doing.
And that's it. Pretty simple, huh?
I will feature one to three winning photos, and those photographers will receive some Patch merchandise (either a T-shirt, sunglasses, water bottle, etc.). These photos also will be entered in an end-of-the-month contest, with the winning photo being printed out and framed for the owner. And those three photos will compete for the title of Favorite Frankfort Summer Photo, to be determined by Frankfort Patch readers.
THIS WEEK'S DEADLINE: 5 p.m. Tuesday, July 31.
