Banner Contest

When you view any page on this website, you will notice an image at the top of the page.  These pictures are called a header.  They are  940 × 198 pixels.  So landscapes or wide angle shots  would be best.

We are inviting you to submit your best 10 images unique to Skagit County or relating to genealogy.  This could be a reunion showing your anonymous  family gathering.  Or a unusual shot of a local cemetery.  It could be a picture of the Deception Bridge.   We want you to use your imagination.  Do you have to take the picture?  No, it can be someone in your family.  These pictures must be your own amateur shots. By submitting your pictures, you are automatically giving SVGS permission to post them on the website.

This contest will begin in September and run through the first general membership meeting in January.  The submission phase will be from September through November.  You can submit your pictures to me (GeorgeR) at

In December the SVGS board will sort through and select 30 pictures.  Only the board will know who submitted what photos.

Prior to the January general meeting the membership will submit the winning 10 pictures.  No more than three pictures will be chosen from your group of ten. You may place your name and date picture was taken in the lower right hand corner in a small text. Remember these should be landscape shots that can be set to 940 x 198 pixels.

Good Luck
