Once again, we will be selling raffle tickets. The winner will receive a framed copy of the print of their choice from the display. This raffle helps pay for our room rental for the weekend, so please promote it when you are working the show. The chosen print will be duplicated to approximately 10X15, mounted, matted and framed to 16" X 20". Your original print will not be used. Therefore, if your photo is chosen by the winner we will need to borrow your slide, negative or digital file for duplication ASAP. If you do not want your print in this raffle, or you can't find your slide or negative or digital file, please indicate this on the entry tag under your title. (write "Not for Raffle")
