Kingston, May 03—Each year, the cover of the Jamaica Yellow Pages telephone directory is perhaps one of the country’s most prolific images, and the 2014 edition will have a special twist.
With the launch of the “Click the Cover” competition, Jamaica Yellow Pages is offering amateur and professional photographers the chance to feature on the cover of the 2014 edition of the directory. The winning photographer will receive $100,000 and a Nikon D3200 24.2 megapixel digital SLR camera accentuated with an 18-55mm zoom lens, the perfect tool to pursue a love of photography.
For the contest, which runs through to May 31, photographers should upload images that are iconic representations of Jamaica’s rich culture, including scenery, objects, places, and of course, people. Submissions are to be made on the Jamaica Yellow Pages Facebook page.
A panel of Jamaica’s most respected visual artists will select the winning photograph, while the People’s Choice award of $10,000 will be awarded to the entry with the most votes on the Jamaica Yellow Pages Facebook page.
“This contest is a novel way of involving members of the public in the design of the 2014 Yellow Pages Telephone Directory Cover. It’s a celebration of the beauty of Jamaica and a platform for talented photographers to share their vision. Featuring on the cover of the Jamaica Yellow Pages puts the winning photograph in nearly every household and business across the country. That’s a significant honour and so we expect to receive many outstanding submissions,” said Alleyne Graham, Jamaica Yellow Pages Marketing Manager.
To participate, photographers should visit and “Like” the Jamaica Yellow Pages Facebook page and look for the “Click the Cover” tab, complete the registration form and upload original photographs.
