Photography & Videography Contest
NEW for the 2012 Jefferson Cup, we are encouraging all participants to participate in a photography and/or videography contest. The rules are very simple – take a picture and/or video and submit it to us for voting. The winners of each contest will each win either an iPod Shuffle or a $50 VISA gift card. Read below for further details if interested. The top five photographs and videos will be identified and posted on the Jefferson Cup webpage. A virtual vote will then be held to determine the winner.
