    I have registered and paid for an entry in the “great outdoors’ photography division “… how do I submit the photo digitally and to what email address.

    I am entering a photograph in Division 4005, Class 090 Color – Pets with People. Was the intent of this section to be photos which contain both pets and people, or just a person’s pet?

    The “wildlife” comment seems to include any wildlife that I photograph even though it is not domesticated. They come to my feeders and I have been feeding them for months and continue to do so.
