The A-J wants to print your action photos
We want to see your action photos. Send photos of you or your friends. Photos can be from last year, this year or 20 years ago. We’ll run the photos on Saturdays in March. Here’s how to get them in the paper:
■ Write one to two sentences describing what’s happening in the photo: who the people are, what they’re doing, where they are and when the photo was taken.
■ Identify every person in the photo, and double check that names are spelled correctly.
■ E-mail the photo as a jpg attachment at high resolution to firstname.lastname@example.org. Put “Action Photos” in the subject line. Or mail it to Heather Daniel, A-J, P.O. Box 491, Lubbock, TX 79408.
