See press release below from Cong. Huffman regarding an awesome photo contest. Let's make sure HumCo is represented.  The gov't could just have the NSA scour your hard drive and grab your photos, but it's more official if you actually submit them.  N.B. the deadline for submission is July 5.

WASHINGTON­—Congressman Jared Huffman (D-San Rafael) announced that he will hold a district-wide landscape photography competition starting tomorrow. Constituents should email their original landscape photograph to Huffman.Staff@mail.house.gov, and include their name, hometown, and the location of the photo in the body of the email. Submissions will be accepted until July 5, 2013.

 “This photography competition will showcase what is without a doubt the most beautiful Congressional District in the nation,”Congressman Huffman said. “I look forward to seeing what Northern Californians submit, from the Golden Gate Bridge standing sentinel at the San Francisco Bay, to the remote beauty of the Lost Coast, to the ancient Redwood forests.”

On Friday, July 5, submissions will be posted toFacebook.com/RepHuffman where constituents will vote on photos by “liking” them. The two winning photographs, as determined by most likes, will be announced on Thursday, July 18. Each photograph will be published as Congressman Huffman’s official Twitter header photo andFacebook cover photo for three months apiece.
