The Observer's annual summer vacation photo contest
We hope you’ll be back from your vacation before Sept. 9. That’s the last day we can accept photos in our annual “How I Shot My Summer Vacation” contest.
Winners of the Best All-Around Photo (chosen by Observer editors) and Readers’ Choice categories will each receive a $25 gift card. All four winners will each receive an “I Travel With the Charlotte Observer” T-shirt and two travel books.
On Sept. 22, we’ll publish the winners in the Charlotte Observer, and present a slideshow of the best photos on CharlotteObserver.com.
