Submit your entry for the NDLSA / Wind Rose Winery special wine bottling label.
The official rules of The New Dungeness Light Station Association (NDLSA) Digital Photo & Art Contest
The purpose of this contest is to select the label photo or artwork for a limited edition bottling of the first New Dungeness Light Station commemorative wine to be produced by Wind Rose Winery, Sequim, WA as a fundraiser for the maintenance of the Light Station.
The NDLSA Digital Photo & Art Contest (“Contest”) is open to all; however, anyone under twenty-one years of age must have the signed approval of a parent or guardian. Each entry must be accompanied by the $10 entry fee, which will be used to offset the cost of production of the labels and promotional materials.
The “Contest” is sponsored by The New Dungeness Light Station Association. This “Contest” is in no way sponsored by, endorsed by, administered by, or associated with, any other entity.
The “Contest” begins at 12:00 a.m. PST on December 15, 2016 and ends at 11:59 p.m. PST on February 15, 2017 (the “Entry Period”). Entries submitted before or after the Entry Period will not be eligible. Sponsor’s computer is the official time-keeping device for the Photo Contest.
