Dinosaur eggs. Pet parakeets. Plymouth Rock.
Each year, we close the Sun Magazine's photography contest feeling as though we've thumbed through your family's latest albums. You lead very exciting lives -- we can tell from the pictures of your pool parties and your vacation on the spectacular Grand Canyon cliffs.
By the way, we noticed also a few trends: You can't resist sailboats on the bay, hot-air balloons, pets of any persuasion, sunsets, giant spider webs and your children. No, make that children in general, babies in specific.
Our judges, Sun photographers, had a tough time choosing winners. They awarded prizes of $250 each for the best color and black-and-white images in each of the three contest categories: Landscape, Portrait and Action. The best from among those six entries also received the grand prize of $1,000. A single, $250 winner was chosen from the entries submitted by youths 16 and under. Winning photographs taken on Kodak film have been entered in the 1993 Kodak International Newspaper Snapshot Awards contest to compete for cash prizes totaling $52,500.
