I received the following information from Bonnie Palmer of Chateau Charmant about a contest they are holding. It has a short deadline if anyone might be interested, read the text carefully.
This contest is so simple, that is probably why the rules were missed. It’s photos of our area, so if anyone is planning a trip to the Ozarks it would be a fun day to visit a magical castle built almost entierly by 3 people. There are age brackets for prizes. They are aon the site, but 5 to 11 costs $10, entry fee box lunch included; 12 to 17 cost $15; college students cost$15 and adults costs$20; Pros at$50. per person. It is photographs of the castle or the surrounding area of Olga, the 100 year old Kindal grocery store, the tree arched drive down to the castle, the arched bridge spaning the dry riverbed, etc. The following week the photos are due back on Sept 22 to be judged and displayed. All entries must be framed (any size, this year) with the name of the photographer and their age attached, also if they are a pro or an amateur taped to the bottom so it can be folded back. They will be judged and awarded ribbons as well as prizes for the grand prize winner in each of the age categories. The grand prize winners (for each age category) will have their work displayed at the castle for the next year, plus be featured in the castle Guardian Newletter.
That’s it. Simple.
It will be a fun day. Gates open at 6 AM for those who want to catch the castle in the dark and get a sunrise. The box lunch is prepared by Chef Roland Parny a wonderful French caterer. Hope you can make a fun day with us at the castle.
