Military Rec: Army-wide amateur photo contest opens


The submission period for the Army’s annual Digital Photography Contest begins Monday.

The contest, a program run by the Army Morale, Welfare and Recreation Arts & Crafts program, is designed for amateur photographers.

Participants will enter one of two divisions, one for active-duty military members and one for all other eligible participants, including family members, retirees and DOD civilians.

Photographs can be submitted in seven categories, with traditional work falling into military life, nature and landscapes, people, animals and still life. The design elements category is for photos with an emphasis on geometry, form, texture and perspective. The digital darkroom category is for photos created with digital alterations.

Entries will compete at the garrison level to start, with winners advancing to the Army-wide contest after that.

Details on how to enter can be found on the Army MWR website, armymwr.com. The work of past winners in each category also can be viewed on the contest website.

Submissions will be accepted through Jan. 20.

The local point of contact for the contest is Frame and Design Arts, which is on Armistead Street on Pope Field. The shop can be reached at 910-394-4192.

Auto frenzy

The RecPlex Auto Skills Center, located on Armistead Street on Pope Field, will host a 12-hour frenzy on Nov. 17.

The event gives auto hobbyists an opportunity to work on large projects using the center’s selection of tools, including lifts, tire changes, a brake lathe and diagnostic equipment.

The bays open at 9 a.m.

The frenzies, which the skills center holds about once a month starting in May, are a bit of a social gathering as well for auto hobbyists.

Sports USA will have food, like burgers and hot dogs, for sale from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The frenzy is open to Department of Defense cardholders.

For more information, contact the center at 910-394-2293.
