Hunters and anglers, send us your photos

The Echo Press is sponsoring the annual "Hunt Down Your Photos" contest. Hunting and angling themed photos are welcome. Prizes will be awarded to the top two photos.

Send us a photograph (color or black and white), along with information about the subject, including the name of those in the photo, where they are from, the location and when the event occurred. The photo may become ineligible if any of this information is missing!

Deadline for entries is November 30. Select photos will be published in the Lakes Area Outdoors special edition printed in the Echo Press in the fall of 2013.

Winners will be selected based on sharpness, lighting, setting and overall impact.

Entries may be mailed to Echo Press, Hunt Down Your Photos, P.O. Box 549, Alexandria, MN 56308; dropped off at the Echo Press office, 225 7th Avenue East in Alexandria or e-mailed to

If photos are to be returned, a self-addressed, stamped envelope must be included with the entry.
