JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO — Entry submissions for the 2015 Army Digital Photography Contest are now being accepted, Oct. 15-Nov. 30.

This annual contest allows online entries from contestants in two divisions: active duty personnel and other Army Morale, Welfare and Recreation patrons.

The purpose of the contest is to recognize the artistic eye of enlisted Soldiers, commissioned officers and civilians alike for their simple and true captures of garrison life around the world.

Any Army MWR patron with an AKO address may participate.

Prizes this year are $300 for 1st place, $200 for 2nd place and $100 for 3rd place, in each category.

Contestants may enter and could win in more than one of these categories: animals, design elements, digital darkroom, military life, still life, people and nature/landscapes.

Contestants can submit their entries online at www.armymwr.com/recleisure /artsandcrafts/default.aspx.

Winners will be selected in February, and a list of all winners in the 2015 Photo Contest will be viewed at the same Web address.
