Entries in Plants & Flowers and Food & Nutrition must be made at the Secretary’s Office on the Fairgrounds on Wednesday, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. No entries can be made other than at this time; however, exhibitors are allowed the privilege of bringing their exhibits on Thursday morning until 10 a.m. All exhibits must be in place by 10 a.m., as the judging will begin at that time. 5. Entries in the 4-H Club Department and FFA are to be made by 5 p.m. on the designated entry day on the proper forms at the Harrison County Extension Office in Logan. 6. All articles must be marked with a card which will be furnished by the Secretary designating the class and number. 7. Every article or animal exhibited upon the grounds shall, during the Fair, be under the control of the Board of Directors and while every precaution will be taken for safekeeping of the same, the Board will in no case be responsible for any loss or damage that may occur. 8. Exhibitors having articles or animals provided with proper entry tags take them to the Superintendent of their department, who will assign them to a place. 9. All animals must be exhibited in such places and at such times as the Superintendent in charge shall direct and in accord with the official program. 10. All obnoxious, repulsive or inappropriate for fair viewing articles will be excluded from the grounds at the discretion of the Board. 11. Entries made where the premium is to be paid to a society must be made in the name of that society.

Release of Exhibits 12. All concessions and commercial exhibits must remain until 6 p.m. Sunday. All competitive open class exhibits must be in place and remain until the prescribed times as recorded for the department entered. 13. Exhibitors in department where entry tags are used must present entry tag receipt for the return of their exhibit to the superintendent or the assistants of the department in which the articles were shown. Under no circumstances will the exhibitor be permitted access to display cases or space when exhibits are shown. 14. All exhibits will be under the charge of the department where they are entered and cannot be removed, boxed, sacked or wrapped for removal until released by the Superintendent. 15. All premiums will be withheld by the fairboard for any noncompliance. 16. All Open Class exhibits will be released Sunday night and may not be removed from the premises before that time. The grounds will be supervised until 11 a.m. Monday. All open class exhibits will be released at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday evening. Awards 1. Awarding will be done by competent judges, engaged by the executive committee, or, in the case of the failure of a judge to appear, by a committee appointed by the board. 2. Purple or Blue Ribbons shall indicate first premium; red ribbons, second; white ribbons, third. Committees on awards shall consist of three persons except in classes where expert judges are especially provided. 3. Committees of judges will be careful to put on badges denoting premiums as they make their awards; especially being careful that the badges and reports agree. Do not put ribbons on articles unless you report them in the class book.

9


4. Great care must be taken to preserve the awarding committee’s books, and awards must be entered in a plain and legible manner, with the reason for the award in the proper place; the premium will be paid on the authority of these only. 5. The superintendents are required to see that exhibitors have no communication with the judges engaged in making the awards, and any person attempting to interfere with the judges in the adjudication will promptly be excluded from the competition. The above instructions, however, must be interpreted to mean that the judges cannot explain the reasons for their award, and it is especially requested that all judges in as far as possible carry on the educational work, as that is important. It does not apply to 4-H conference judging in the 4-H Exhibit Hall. 6. No animal will be awarded a prize unless removed from its stalls and exhibited with tag and exhibit number attached in the show ring. Animals not exhibited when called out by the Superintendent will be barred from competition. 7. The awarding committee on cattle will have regard to symmetry, early maturity, size and general characteristics of the breed to which they belong. They will make proper allowance for age, breed, and other circumstances affecting the character, condition and value of the animals. 8. The society will pay cash premiums (pro rata) contingent upon receipts; then as much of the remainder as is required will be appropriated to the payment of the premiums as herewith published. 9. Where premiums other than those offered by the fair association are offered, the payment is contingent upon the fulfillments of these obligations by the organizations offering them. 10. In all cases of championship awards, ribbons will be given. 11. In the case of no competition, second and third place ribbons may be awarded by the judges if in their judgment they deem the animal or article worthy of any such prize. PAYMENT OF PREMIUMS 12. PREMIUMS FOR OPEN CLASS EXHIBITS IN GROOMS HALL WILL BE PAID AT SECRETARY’S OFFICE FROM 2:00 P.M. TO 8:00 P.M. SATURDAY AND SUNDAY.

Artistic work or manufactured articles, products of the land, or animals can be entered only in the name of the article, owner or producer. Artistic work or manufactured articles having received premiums at a previous fair are barred from FUTURE COMPETITION. THIS RULE WILL BE ENFORCED. Conduct Any 4-H member that is caught with alcoholic beverages or misconduct of any source or kind on the fairgrounds will forfeit his/her premium, and be subject to leave the fair and may be subject to not being eligible to enter the Harrison County Fair the following year. Decision of what is a misconduct will be made by the Fair Board. Complaints The Fair Board will consider only those complaints made and signed on an official form and filed with the Fair Secretary. Complaints which pertain to a particular division must be on file at least two hours before that division shows. Camping Due to the increased costs, the Harrison County Fair Board will charge a $75.00 fee for campers and a $10.00 fee for tents during fair week. Camping is reserved for 4-H members and families. All campers must register and pay fee at the fairboard office upon arrival. Any camping prior to 2:00 p.m. Sunday of fair week and after the following Sunday MUST follow the city park’s camping rules and regulations. The area north of the sidewalk in the grassy area of the park has been designated by the board as camping for 4-H’ers and their families, along with the area along Huron Street. Any persons pulling posts in the park WILL be escorted from the park and not allowed to camp during fair week and a $40.00 fine. Parking Any vehicle violating the following, will be subject to towing at the owner’s expense and a $50 fine: 1) double parking/blocking another vehicle, 2) parking in a reserved area, 3) blocking any entrance, and 4) parking in a fire/emergency lane. Horse Show Parking Livestock trailers arriving for ALL horse shows are REQUIRED to park along the park area next to Huron Street. During the Tuesday show participants are asked to use the pit area to the west of the horse arena and on Sunday to use the area to the east of the horse arena. This will allow for the grandstand activities to use the opposite areas. Public Safety The Fair Board has given due consideration to public safety and has arranged for adequate police and fire protection for the duration of the fair. Cooperation by fair patrons with these staffs will enhance the chances of a “No Accident” fair. Emergency Plan The Fair Board has coordinated with the Harrison County Emergency Management and the city of Missouri Valley a disaster plan to prepare fair officials for either a natural disaster or man-made disaster during the fair. A copy of the plan is available at the fair office. Groom’s Hall has been designated as the emergency shelter on the fair grounds. 4-H leaders and parents are asked to gather minors, assist them to Groom’s Hall and remain with them until notified by officials that the emergency has cleared. In the event of an emergency, the Fair Office will be the designated recovery center for a lost child.

2010 HEALTH REQUIREMENTS FOR EXHIBITION OF LIVESTOCK, POULTRY AND BIRDS AT A COUNTY 4H/FFA FAIR ANY EVIDENCE OF WARTS, RINGWORM, FOOT ROT, PINK EYE, DRAINING ABSCESSES OR ANY OTHER CONTAGIOUS OR INFECTIOUS CONDITION WILL ELIMINATE THE ANIMAL FROM THE SHOW. No individual Certificate of Veterinary Inspection will be required on animals or poultry exhibited at County 4-H/FFA FAIR, but the animals must be inspected when unloaded or shortly thereafter by an accredited veterinarian. All animals moving from out of state into an Iowa county 4-H/FFA fair must meet Iowa Animal and Livestock Importation requirements. Each show must have an official veterinarian. Quarantined animals or animals from quarantined herds cannot be exhibited. Swine exhibitors at county fairs that do not require a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection, must sign and present an owner affidavit that the animals being exhibited did not originate from a quarantined herd and to the best of their knowledge, swine dysentery has not been in evidence in their herd for the past 12 months. All swine exhibited must be accompanied by a record of a negative pseudorabies test, the test having been performed within 30 days prior to show, for swine originating from a Stage 4 or lower status county, subject to 64.35(2). No pseudorabies testing is required for swine originating from a Stage 5 county (Iowa is Stage 5). Swine returning from an exhibition to its home herd or moved to a purchaser's herd, following an exhibition or consignment sale, must be isolated and retested negative for pseudorabies not less than 30 days and not more than 60 days after reaching the swine's destination. (Code of Iowa 166D.13(2)) EXCEPTIONS: A. No testing is required for swine at an exhibition that involves only market classes, provided all swine are consigned directly to a slaughter establishment from the exhibition. The site that the swine originate from must have a current monitored status in order for the swine to be transported to the fairgrounds (statistical testing completed within the last twelve months or originate from a site in Stage III or higher area). Swine leaving the exhibition from a market class must be consigned and moved direct to a slaughtering establishment. B. If counties have a split show and the breeding animals are exhibited and returned home before the market classes arrive, it will not be necessary to have a test record on the animals showing in the market classes; however, market class animals must have a current monitored status in order to be transported to the fairgrounds. SHEEP AND GOATS All sexually intact sheep must have an individual Scrapie Flock of Origin identification tag. All sexually intact goats must be identified with an individual Scrapie Flock of Origin identification tag or by an official tattoo registered with USDA (to register, call 1-866-USDA-TAG; 1-866-873-2824). POULTRY AND BIRDS All poultry exhibited must come from U.S. Pullorum-Typhoid clean or equivalent flocks, or have had a negative PullorumTyphoid test within 90 days of public exhibition and the test must have been performed by an authorized tester. (SEE GENERAL SECTION 1.B) However, "Market Classes" of poultry consigned to a slaughter establishment are exempt from the Salmonella testing requirements. "Market Classes" of poultry must be separated from all other poultry by a distance of ten or more feet and/or an eight-foot high solid partition. DOGS AND CATS All dogs and cats exhibited must have a current rabies vaccination certificate. FARM DEER Accredited veterinarians must be approved to administer tuberculosis tests on Cervidae. “Cervidae” means all animals belonging to the cervidae family, and “CWD susceptible cervidae” means whitetail deer, blacktail deer, mule deer, red deer, elk and moose. Cervidae may be exhibited without other testing requirements when accompanied by a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection that lists individual official identification.

12


All Cervidae must have been part of the herd of origin for at least one year or were natural additions, or must have originated from a chronic wasting disease monitored or certified herd in which these animals have been kept for at least one year or were natural additions. Cervidae originating from a herd with a diagnosis, signs, epidemiological evidence, or area under quarantine for chronic wasting disease may not be exhibited. The following statement must appear on the Certificate of Veterinary Inspection: A. CWD susceptible cervidae: “All Cervidae on this certificate originate from a chronic wasting disease monitored or certified herd in which these animals have been kept for at least one year or were natural additions. There has been no diagnosis, signs, or epidemiological evidence of chronic wasting disease in this herd for the past year.” B. Other cervidae. “All Cervidae on this certificate have been part of the herd of origin for at least one year or were natural additions to this herd. There has been no diagnosis, signs, or epidemiological evidence of chronic wasting disease in this herd for the past year.” THE DECISION OF THE OFFICIAL SHOW VETERINARIAN WILL BE FINAL. David D. Schmitt, D.V.M., State Veterinarian Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship ============================================================================== Animal Health Precaution All livestock buildings are sprayed for flies prior to entry day. Special attention is given to the livestock barns before each fair, and while every precaution is taken to insure the health of the livestock entered for exhibition, the Fair Association cannot assume responsibility for the health and safety of the animals during their stay on the grounds.

The youth may also be prohibited from exhibiting at this and future exhibitions including the Iowa State Fair and other county, state or regional exhibitions. Youth agree to follow these guidelines: 1. I will do my own work, appropriate for my age and physical and mental development. This includes research and writing of exhibit explanations, preparing exhibits (such as sewing, cooking, refinishing, etc), care and grooming of animals, etc. Adult assistance should help guide and support me, not do it for me. 2. All exhibits will be a true representation of my work. Any attempt to take credit for other’s work, alter the conformation of animals, or alter their performance is prohibited. Copyright violation or allowing others to complete your exhibit is considered misrepresentation and is prohibited. 3. I will treat all people and animals with respect. I will provide appropriate care for animals. 4. I will present exhibits that are safe for consumption. All food exhibits will be safe to exhibit and for judges to evaluate. Other exhibits will be safe for judges to evaluate and for exhibition. 5. All food animals that may be harvested immediately following the show shall be safe for consumers, and shall have met all withdrawal times for all medications, and be free of violative drug residue. 6. If any animal requires medical treatment while at the fair or exhibition, only a licensed veterinarian may administer the treatment. All medications that are administered shall be done according to the label instructions of the medication used. 7. My animal’s appearance or performance shall not be altered by any means, including medications, external applications and surgical procedures. Any animal that is found to have changed its appearance or its performance shall be disqualified from the show, and have penalties assessed against the exhibitor, parent and/or guardian by the management of the fair or exhibition. 8. I will follow all ownership and possession rules and, if requested, will provide the necessary documentation. 9. I will follow all livestock health requirements for this fair or exhibition, according to the state health requirements as printed in the premium book of the fair or exhibition.

By my entering an animal in this fair or exhibition, I am giving consent to the management of the fair or exhibition to obtain any specimens of urine, saliva, blood, or other substances from the animal to be used in testing. If the laboratory report on the analysis of any sample indicates a presence of forbidden drugs, this shall be evidence such substance has been administered to the animal either internally or externally. It is presumed that the sample tested by the laboratory to which it is sent is the one taken from the animal in question, its integrity is preserved and all procedures of said collection and preservation, transfer to the laboratory and analysis of the sample are correct and accurate and the report received from the laboratory pertains to the sample taken from the animal in question and correctly reflects the condition of the animal at the time the sample was taken, with the burden on the exhibitor, parent and/or guardian to prove otherwise. 11. I am responsible for my exhibit and I will not allow others to violate this code on my behalf. By my entering an exhibit in this fair or exhibition I will accept any disciplinary action taken by the management of this fair or exhibition for any violation of this code of ethics and any other rules of competition of the fair or exhibition without recourse against the fair or exhibition. 12.

We are offering an opportunity for businesses and individuals who have a stake in the hog industry and agriculture to consider submitting a modest sealed bid for a hog above what the hog would bring on the open market. For example, if a sealed bid for 50 cents were submitted on a 200 pound hog, it would cost the bidder $100.00, payable to the exhibitor. In return, the exhibitor must furnish the bidder with a picture of the youth, the pig and ribbon for display in the bidder’s business for 30 days. Generally speaking the highest sealed bid will go to the champion hog and so on and so forth until all individual market hogs receive a premium. However, the Harrison County Fair Board would like to reserve the opportunity to combine bids from all or some of the bidders as we have in the past. This is to increase participation of the bidders (i.e. more bidders will get the opportunity to buy a portion of the champion or reserve hog). In addition, this process increases the premium bids paid to the 4-H youth. Note: if bids are combined to increase the total premiums paid for the champion and reserve placings, the individual bidders will not have to pay more than their total bid ($100 in the above example). The combined bidders will however each receive a champion and reserve ribbon with a youth photo to display in their place of business. Not all bids are used due to the fact that we only pay premiums on two individual market hogs per youth. If you have any questions on how this process works, please contact Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator, Rich Pope, 712-644-2105. All hogs will be sold to a buyer selected by the swine committee. Your support is above and beyond what the youth receives from the packing plant. If you would like to participate in the Hog Marketing Program at the 2010 Harrison County Fair, please contact Judy Holcombe, Secretary-Treasurer, Harrison County Fair Board at 712-642-4383. Sincerely, Harrison County Fair Board Swine Committee.

Herdsmanship Tips NO feed bunks should be left in stalls. They should be seen only at feeding time and then removed. Cattle and stalls should be kept clean. This means that the manure should be taken out of the stalls frequently and the animals should be cleaned after they manure. Keep clean bedding UNDER the animals in the stalls. Keep alleys CLEAN! This means sweep the alleys and wash the manure off the alleyways if necessary. No lime to be used on walks. Tie animals securely. Cattle should be double-ties. Keep entrances to the barns clean. Sweep or rake up all loose debris around the ENTIRE outside of barn. Keep the areas where the show boxes are, in neat order. Clean blocking chutes of loose hair and manure after using. Blocking chutes must be placed where assigned by Superintendent.

Grooming of Livestock and Horses Responsibility for grooming animals for show is primarily the responsibility of exhibitors. In keeping with this fact, the following rules will be observed: 1. Grooming including clipping, trimming or blocking may be done only by exhibitors and immediate members of an exhibitor’s family. 2. Upon violation of the above rule, exhibitor may be disqualified from show and will forfeit all premium monies.

(Kits are defined as any prepackaged item where the manufacturer predetermines the materials and the design. Examples of preformed molds would be purchased greenware or whiteware.) Articles that used patterns or pictures from magazines as starting points for designs are acceptable, assuming the 4-H’er modifies the design to make an original statement. You must make five major changes. (Combining parts of patterns with the member’s own ideas can result in an original design; changing the color and/or size does not make the design original.) You must include the pattern or picture of the source of design in your write up. 2. If the exhibit results in a finished art object, you must include the picture of the source of design, the design sketches, or process for creating the design. This might include cut paper designs, sketches, a piece of tree bark, doodles, or magazine pictures (identify the magazine and issue.) 3. The written description of the exhibit must identify the design element(s) and/or art principle(s). When application of design elements and art principles must be explained, the following guidelines shall be used: a. Members in grades 4-6 are responsible for using a minimum of one design element within their exhibit. Youth must explain how the specified element is used in the exhibit. While not evaluated or given a higher ribbon placing for using more than one element, youth may discuss additional elements used in the exhibit. b. Members in grades 7-8 are responsible for using a minimum of two design elements within their exhibit. Youth must explain how the specified elements are used in the exhibit. While not evaluated or given a higher ribbon placing for using more than two elements, youth may discuss additional elements used in the exhibit. c.

Members in grades 11-12 are responsible for using a minimum of two art principles and the elements used in the selected principles. Youth must explain how the elements are used to illustrate the selected principles. While not evaluated or given a higher ribbon placing for using more than two principles, youth may discuss additional principles and corresponding elements used in the exhibit. Copyright logos, designs, or trademark materials should not be used for visual art exhibits on public display at a fair or other setting without written permission. If written permission has been obtained for an exhibit in the technique class, it should be included in the written support materials of this exhibit. For display purposes, exhibits will then be labeled "Copyright permission granted". These materials are never

41


appropriate for the Original Art class. You do not need to request permission to use the 4-H emblem. This is granted to you as a member of the 4-H program, as long as you are not making money from its use. Class 821A, Original Art — Original art should be an exhibit that has a design unique to you. By using one medium or a combination, an individual creates an object that is not recognizable as another's work. Trademarks, logos, and other copyrighted images cannot be original since some other artist has already designed and created it. You must identify and explain the application of the design element(s) and art principle(s) featured in this exhibit and describe or explain the source of the design. Does one (or more) of the following questions help describe what your exhibit is about? If it sounds like your exhibit, it should probably be in the Original Art class. 1. 2.

3. 4.

Did your idea come from something you thought up, the placement of geometric shapes, or something viewed in nature? Did you see a design, magazine picture, painting, etc., that gave you an idea and you made major changes to that idea? (Include the source of design and explain the major changes.) You know it is a major change if you quickly look at your original source and your exhibit and they DO NOT seem similar. Did you create your exhibit by observing things around you like looking at a still life or from a photograph you took of a scene? Are the people in your exhibit (drawing, painting) ones you observed, studied, sketched, or photographed and not people you saw in a magazine or other photograph? (If the person is identifiable from your picture, did you request their permission to use them in your art work?)

Class 821B, Design and/or Technique Exploration — This exploration class is an exhibit that provides an individual the opportunity to explore a medium, practice a skill, or study a design element or art principle. An explanation of the application of design elements or art principles used when making the exhibit must be included. This exhibit may be an object, portfolio, display, poster, or organized sketchbook. If a non-original design source is used, its origin (where the idea was found, any pictures, sketches, etc.) must still be credited. Logos, trademarks, pictures or designs that are copyrighted may only be used if permission for this specific use has been granted from an authorized authority. The written permission must be included in the support materials provided with the exhibit or the piece is not legal for public display and will be disqualified. For display purposes, those exhibits with written permission will be labeled “Copyright permission granted”. In this class 1. Directions may be used to make the exhibit (basket weave pattern, quilt pattern, process instructions i.e. tie dying). Include the source of instructions or copy of the instructions. In your write-up be sure to focus on the design elements or art principles used in making decisions to develop the exhibit. 2. It may be a process evaluation shown by examples that demonstrate a different step of the process needed to complete a finished product. This process evaluation is the only acceptable place to exhibit portions of greenware or whiteware to provide the appropriate surface to illustrate the process techniques being explored. Processes could include glazes, paint blending, surface preparation to the final product. A finished product will only be used in the evaluation to determine level of accomplishment of the goal. 3. A portfolio showing several examples of practicing techniques of a medium where you used design ideas from photos, magazines, pictures. You must credit the sources of design ideas. 4. You may use a series of rubber stamps, stencils, etc. to create a design, develop technique or study color and texture. Detailed explanation of the use of the design elements/art principles is required. 5. Create a picture while practicing and improving your technique(s) of drawing, shading, blending, etc. The write-up focuses on the techniques practiced to demonstrate skills in applying the design elements and/or art principles. Class 821C, Other Visual Art Topics — Exhibits might include study on an individual artist, style, craft business or marketing process, planning group tour, career options, etc.

Show is open to legal residents of the state of Iowa only. Acts must appear in a locally sponsored show somewhere in the state of Iowa and WIN to be eligible to compete at the Iowa State Fair. Judges decisions are final. Sprouts: 2 through 6 years Juniors: 7 through 14 years Seniors: 15 through 21 years A person's age for the Iowa State Fair competition is determined at the time they win a local show. A 14year-old (or 21-year-old) could turn 15 (or 22) by State Fair and still be eligible in the Junior (or Senior) division, as they met age requirements at the time of qualification. Acts with multiple performers will be placed in competition by adding the ages of members, and dividing by the number of members. The average age for that group dictates what division they compete in. We understand that some acts may have members that are in other age divisions, but try to keep the ages as close as possible to your division. Acts must attempt to keep the performance as close to three minutes as possible. Acts running longer than three minutes are subject to possible disqualification or point deduction. This will be at the judge’s discretion. Keep the act at three minutes please. Set-up time is not included. Please try to limit set-up time to one minute. No more than five persons are allowed in an act. Piano accompanist is NOT included in an act and may be any age. No more than three accompanists permitted per act. Drums, amps, etc. are discouraged due to the one-minute set-up time. No combos, rock bands or similar musical group permitted.

Acts are asked to not dance onto or off the stage. After introductions, you may take any position you wish to begin your performance. Vocalists are strongly encouraged to practice and perform with the assistance of a vocal coach and/or a live accompanist. We understand that live accompanists are expensive, and sometimes very difficult to obtain for some performers. We will allow prerecorded accompaniment as long as it is a single instrument. Any prerecorded tape with backing vocals, multiple instrumentation or orchestration is not allowed, and the act will be disqualified. Contestants may only appear once in any given show. They may not perform "solo" and then return in the same show in a duet or trio. Contestants are allowed to perform in different acts in different shows, but they may only qualify for the State Fair Show with one act. Professionals are NOT permitted to compete. This includes Union musicians and anyone whose principle source of income is from their talent. Compensation for performing at weddings, etc. does not constitute principle source of income. For more information or complete Bill Riley’s Iowa State Fair Talent Search Rules for Contestants go to http://www.iowastatefair.org/competition/talent.php

4-H Fair King and Queen Crowning 4-H Fair King and Queen Crowning will be held following the talent show. Reception (sponsored by Harrison County 4-H Clubs) to greet the King and Queen will follow. The Queen will participate in the Iowa State Fair Queen Contest at Des Moines. The flowers for the King and Queen contestants and the Queen’s bouquet have been provided courtesy of M J’s Flowers and Balloons.

The Talent Show is sponsored by the Missouri Valley Times-News and the Dean J. and Bernice King Memorial.

Entrants should keep negatives or extra prints of their photographs. All other photos can be picked up at the fair or at our office after the fair is over.

Each first place winner (blue ribbon) will receive $10.00, second place (red ribbon) will receive $7.50 and third place (white ribbon) will receive $5.00. One grand place (purple ribbon) will be awarded and they will receive $25.00.

7.

All entries must be in the Harrison County SWCD office by July 19th. Placing a piece of cardboard in the envelope and writing “Photographs: Do Not Bend” on the envelope will help ensure that photographs arrive in good condition. Send entries to: Harrison County SWCD, PO Box 202, Logan, IA 51546. Or deliver to: Harrison County SWCD, 2710 Hwy 127, Logan. We are in the USDA office across from Lo-Ma Schools. All entries will be judged at the Harrison County SWCD office on July 20th.

Judging Standards: For technical merit, judges may check to see if the photo is: Well-framed – The photographer should be close enough to the subject to leave irrelevant or distracting items out of the shot. For example, photographs usually should not include unnecessary space above subjects’ heads or the shoulder of someone not intended to be part of the photograph. However, objects like tree branches, tall grass or a railroad track can sometimes create a nice effect if carefully and purposely included in a picture. Properly Exposed – Subjects’ faces should not be washed out or shadowy. Backlighting, improper use of a flash and incorrect exposure settings on the camera often cause exposure problems. Sharp and Clear – The center of interest should be sharp and clear; however, not everything in the photograph must be sharp. In fact, selective focus adds greatly to the appeal of some photographs. A blurred hand can sometimes be effective at showing action, for instance. Carefully adjusting your focus and correctly using shutter speed and f-stop settings will produce sharp photographs.

Composition: For composition, judges determine if the photo features: A recognizable Center of Interest – The photo should generally be well organized, so that the eye immediately recognizes one subject as the most important element of the picture. This element should not necessarily be in the center of the frame, but should follow the rule of thirds. Action – A photograph should usually show some kind of action, particularly if people are the subject. However, some photographs, such as landscapes, do not require action. Imagination and Creativity – An interesting camera angle or lighting effect can make the difference between a technically good but boring photograph and an award-willing photograph. For example, a photographer who lays on her back next to a row of carrots while the gardener is harvesting may capture the expression on the gardener’s face and the soil falling away from the carrot as it is uprooted. An eye-level shot would probably show the top of the gardener’s head and a bag of carrots. Many traditional photographic rules can be broken for the sake of creativity.
