Photo Contest

Thanks for your interest to participate in the Dance Parade and DanceFest Photo Contest!

Each year Dance Parade attracts hundreds of photographers and videographers, capturing the magic found when 100 unique styles of dance and cultures are all presented in the same place. They love the energy, movement and color found among ancient cultures and highly ambitious artists. This year we will add a new category, "DanceFest" which follows the parade in Tompkins Square Park. For each category (Dance Parade, DanceFest, and Video), we will award 3 winners.
* First Prize is $100 and tickets to the hit Broadway musical "The Prom".
* Second Prize is $75.
* Third Prize is $50.
All winners will also receive Dance Parade t-shirts and other commemorative items. Entries must be digital, color or black and white. We would like to use your images and videos for our promotional purposes, to present the parade as an art parade and as a participatory experience.

Therefore, we ask you to sign off on using your photos and videos, and will credit you whenever appropriate.

Upon submission you will receive an upload link to the contest's dropbox upload folder. Upload a maximum of 10 Parade photos, 10 Festival photos, 10 videos. If submitting videos, please make sure each video is 15 seconds or shorter and under 50 megabytes. Please name the files with your full legal name, "parade" or "festival", and if you can, the name of the group performing. For each photo, we would like a high-res and a low-res (under 2Mb) image. Thanks again -- We really appreciate it. Remember, the deadline for file uploads is May 31st and we will notify everyone of the results by June 7th. Thank you!
