Fall Foliage Photo Contest open

Fall color normally peaks in northern Indiana during the first week of October. But the summer drought and recent rains make this season anything but normal.

And if we get a hard frost or two and some wind and rain, it could be a really short season for fall foliage.

So get your camera ready and plan to get out and capture fall beauty when and where you find it.

Then enter your photos in our Fall Foliage Photo Contest for a chance to win a $50 Jefferson Pointe mall gift card.

Our staff judges will select a winner based on the best photo of fall foliage taken this year. We'll look at image clarity, composition, lighting and overall visual appeal. Limit of one photo per person. No altered photos please.

You must be a resident of northeast Indiana to enter. Deadline is noon Oct. 29.

We plan to publish the best photos in the paper and at www.news-sentinel.com in early November.

Here's how to enter your photos:

Web: Go to www.news-sentinel.com. In the navigation bar, click on Living and then scroll down to the “Submit a Photo” icon. Click on the icon and follow the instructions on the photo submission page. In the caption, please write “Fall Foliage Photo Contest.”

Mail: Send to Fall Foliage Photo Contest, C/O Features, The News-Sentinel, 600 W. Main St., Fort Wayne, IN 46802. Include your name, daytime phone number, what the photo shows and the location where it was taken. Include a self-addressed, stamped envelope if you want the photo returned.

Questions? Call 461-8347.

Goshen College announced the winning play in the 2012 Goshen College Peace Play Contest — the only contest devoted solely to plays about peace and peace-related topics in the United States — is “Mr. Maurizio” by playwright Mic Weinblatt of Minneapolis. The play premieres at 8 p.m. today, with other performances at 4 p.m. Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday in the college's Umble Center, Goshen. The 2 p.m. performance will be ASL interpreted.
