In 2010, we asked to see portraits of fraternal life and in return, we received an impressive array of over 175 images documenting life in the fraternity. Photos of people participating in everything from Scottish Rite meetings, to Shrine parades and Blue Lodge charity events were submitted. As of January 5, 2011, the second annual Scottish Rite Photo contest is officially open. Contestant entries are already being accepted! This year we are asking for submissions in three categories: 1) Masonic People, 2) Masonic Places and 3) Masonic Things. Prizes will be awarded in each category for first, second, third and honorable mention. Photos can be submitted electronically to Heather K. Calloway at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Contest details and rules can be found on the Supreme Council’s web site at www.scottishrite.org/photocontest.
