2017 Trains Photo Contest
Check out the particulars of our railroad photography contest with the theme, "Lucky 7"
This year we are publishing our 77th volume, so it seemed fitting to call the 2017 Trains Photo Contest "Lucky 7." As always, you can interpret our theme in any way you like as long as it it railroad related. If your railroad image is selected, you’ll have to explain how it fits the theme. Please submit no more than five images. Do not alter your images beyond minor color corrections, burning, dodging, and levels adjustments.
Upload your submissions to www.contribute.kalmbach.com no later than June 1, 2017. Be sure to indicate in the "comments" that your photos are for the photo contest. We will no longer be accepting submissions by mail.
Winners will be announced in the November 2017 issue.
Winner will receive: $750

Winners will receive: a three-year subscription to Trains magazine
