Photo ContestThe AARC is looking for creative members to enter our Photo Contest this year. AARC Times will collect photo entries from the membership, and winners will receive free membership upon renewal and automatically will be entered into the publication’s Photo-of-the-Year Contest, which will take place in the November 2009 issue of the magazine.

The member who wins the Photo-of-the-Year Contest will see his or her photo on the front cover of the January 2010 issue of AARC Times in addition to being prominently displayed at the AARC Executive Office.

What kinds of photos can you send us? Anything related to the respiratory care profession. Any photographic print of good quality will be considered. Please read the requirements below so that you will send your photo in a format that can be reproduced in a printed magazine.

All entrants must be AARC members and must provide a signed release form for any patients or co-workers pictured in the photos. The release form is available online or it can be faxed to you by calling Karen at (972) 406-4661. All photos in the contest will become the property of the AARC and will not be returned. Adhering to the following requirements will assure that your photo will be acceptable for publication. A good photo produced at the wrong resolution may render it unsuitable for reproduction in AARC Times magazine.

  • Since the photo is for the cover, the picture must be in a vertical format. Turn your camera sideways to take the picture so that the vertical length is more than the horizontal length.
  • If your photo is taken with a standard film camera, we will need a color print shipped to us at Photo Contest, AARC, 9425 N. MacArthur Blvd., Ste. 100, Irving, TX 75063-4706.
  • Most digital cameras give you a choice of settings for image resolution. Set your camera for the highest resolution photo and save it as RAW or TIFF. JPGs are acceptable. Low-resolution photos will not be accepted.

We prefer that you mail a CD of your photo to us since it will probably be too large to be e-mailed. If you do try to e-mail a photo, please send it directly to our production department and indicate clearly in your e-mail that the photo is for the AARC Photo Contest.
