Remember that close-ups of people work best.
Submit digital images online at www.KentuckyLiving.com/submitsnapshots.html or mail prints to Kentucky Living Snap Shot, P.O. Box 32170, Louisville, KY 40232. No color laser prints, as they do not reproduce well. Photos will NOT be returned unless you include a stamped, self-addressed envelope.
