Photo contest zooms in on state bridges


Photography enthusiasts have an opportunity to express their visions of the 2011 Annual Conference theme, "The Plan—A Bridge to the Future," through a photo contest.

Winners will receive gift cards. Contact will publish the top three photos.

Submission deadline is May 6.

To enter, an Oklahoma United Methodist participant must submit his or her photo of any bridge in Oklahoma, along with a brief paragraph (50 words or less) stating why that bridge helps people envision the theme.

Submit the paragraph along with photo. You may include it on the CD.
