An expansive purple field in Sequim?
A family meandering among the flowers?
The majestic Olympic Mountains and a glorious purple field?
In honor of Sequim Lavender Weekend, and the Sequim-Dungeness Valley's family-owned lavender farms, our Lavender Photo Contest is an opportunity to showcase your incredible photo.
The three winning photos (determined by online voting) will earn prizes from our Sequim-area sponsors — Lost Mountain Lavender, Martha Lane Lavender, Graysmarsh Farm, Lavender Connection and Purple Haze Lavender.
Prizes include gift certificates, a gift basket and a lavender diffuser.
Entering is easy. Go to http://pdn.upickem.net/engine/Welcome.aspx?contestid=138335.
You can also enter by going to www.peninsuladailynews.com and look for the “Lavender Photo Contest" button in the middle of the webpage (below “Hot Links” and just left of “Friends to Follow")
Follow the instructions for registering — it will only take a minute — then post your photo.
The contest is free, but only residents of Clallam County or Jefferson County can enter. And you must be over the age of 13. Parents may submit photos taken by their children under 13.
All entries must be submitted on the web — sorry, no entries by mail or in person.
The deadline for entries is Wednesday, July 30, at 12 noon, after which the public in online voting will determine who will receive prizes from our contest sponsors.
The Lavender Photo Contest is sponsored by Peninsula Daily News, Sequim Gazette and Forks Forum.

You don't need a purple camera to have a winning picture. But who knows? Maybe it'll put you further into the lavender spirit!
