A Day in the Life of WV



The West Virginia DNR is hoping everybody in West Virginia will share their "day in the life" of the Mountain State.    To celebrate West Virginia‘s 150th anniversary, Wonderful West Virginia Magazine is asking for photo submissions taken this Saturday anywhere in the state.

"We’re hoping they’ll go out to those unusual places including landscapes, events, people, and different parts of the Mountain State life and take pictures from sunup to sundown," said Bryan Hoffman, Publisher of Wonderful West Virginia.

The magazine plans to pour through the entries received and come up with the best which depict a day in the life of West Virginia.  The collection will be published in the June 2013 issue of Wonderful West Virginia as a tribute to the state on its 150th birthday.

The magazine did a similar photo request in the 1980’s.   Hoffman says that one produced an array of photos from a wedding in a meadow to loggers working in a lumber mill.   He’s hoping there will be a host of similar pictures this time.    

The magazine expects its fair share of the beautiful scenery and landmarks of West Virginia, but stresses it doesn’t have to be natural beauty.

"It could be a great commercial building, a sports team, it could be anything as long as the picture is taken in West Virginia," said Hoffman.

The rules are fairly simple.  All photos have to be taken within the borders of the state of West Virginia on September 15, 2012 between sunrise and sunset.    The request is open to anybody including professional photographers or amateurs with a cell phone camera.  Each person is allowed no more than five picture submissions for the gallery and they must be digital pictures at least 300ppi.   The deadline for submission is September 30th.    Also any pictures of actual people will require a model release of that person before they can be used in the publication.
