Do you have great photos from visits to the mountains? Do they reach beyond the usual stereotypes of the mountain area? Check out a photo contest to broaden the images of the Appalachian region, from the Appalachian Regional Commission.
You're responsible for photo release forms of people. Top prize: $500. Deadline: May 2. Photos must have been taken after May 1, 2008.
Photo: Street troubadour in Asheville near Pack Square. (Not good enough for the contest: lacks focus and quality, and I don't know this guy's name. If you know, let me know.)
