Rules

  1. The broad theme of this competition is “Our Community.” We welcome photos that promote community life and service. Photos should inspire and entertain. Please don’t submit images that exploit or are offensive.
  2. We will award 11 first-place winners, one from each of our locations. Each first-place winner will receive a $200 prize. In addition, the top three runners up from each location will be featured in the Our Community calendar.
  3. Entries are accepted from FNBT customers only.
  4. Competition is open to all ages.
  5. Send your best three images, maximum of three.
  6. You must have control of the image you submit, meaning that you took the picture or you have approval from the family member or friend who took it. 
  7. Your image must have a model release signed by your subject(s). Here’s why: If there are people in your image, and the image was not taken on private property, you must have their permission to submit the image. You do not need the permission of 1) a deceased person, 2) yourself if you are in the picture, 3) persons captured in a photo at a public event, such as a fair, festival, parade or community event. (Under court precedents on privacy, you do not need the permission of persons at public events.)
  8. May submit paper image or digital (300 DPI/resolution or >, 1 MB min.)
  9. Submit images by email: Communications@bankfnbt.com (10 MB max)
  10. If you wish to submit paper images, mail them to FNBT Communications, 302 W. Chickasha Avenue, Chickasha OK 73018. They will be returned.

  12. Because we define “community” as “Southwest Oklahoma,” you may submit an entry if you live in other communities, as long as you bank with us.
  13. Judging is fully independent by professional artists not employed by FNBT
  14. By submitting your entry, you grant FNBT the right to print and share your photograph on its website, social media, advertising, etc.
