The Dailyís 10th annual amateur photo contest is under way and runs through Nov. 1.

The deadline to enter Week 2 competition is Friday at 5 p.m. For Week 3, the deadline is Oct. 26. Each weekly winner earns $25. Category (humor, children, landscape/nature and animals) winners will be announced Nov. 4. They also earn $25. From these seven winners, the $500 grand prize winner will be selected.

Here are the 2007 Decatur Daily Photo Contest rules:

Are you eligible? Amateur photographers (those who earn less than 5 percent of their income from photography) can enter. Daily employees and their immediate family members (those living in the same household) are not eligible to participate.

Pick the perfect photo: Enter as many photos as you wish, but avoid similar shots of an identical subject. Photos must have been taken on or after Jan. 1, 2006. We will accept color and black and white photos.

Submitting photos: Entries cannot be accepted via e-mail. Only prints will be accepted. We will not accept disks or negatives. Nonwinning weekly entries do not have to be re-submitted for subsequent judging.

Identify your photo: Print the name, address and daytime and home phone numbers of the photographer on the back of each photo. If we donít know who you are, you canít win!

Keep the deadlines in mind: Deliver entries to The Decatur Daily between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, through Nov. 1. Photos also can be mailed to Photo Contest, c/o The Decatur Daily, P.O. Box 2213, Decatur, AL 35609-2213.

Picking up submissions: Photos must remain at The Daily until the conclusion of the contest. Nonwinning photos will be available for pickup Nov. 5-30. We will discard those not picked up by Nov. 30.
