Announcing Capture Minnesota II

Capture Minnesota II book

A New Capture Minnesota Publication

Get your cameras ready and your voting fingers warmed up -- it's time for the next Capture Minnesota publication! tpt is thrilled to announce the Capture Minnesota II book. Building on the success of the first Capture Minnesota book, we are excited to open submissions and voting for a brand new hardbound book featuring the best Minnesota photography from Capture Minnesota users.

What is it?

The best of Minnesota, as decided by local photographers and local voters, wrapped in a hardbound fine-art book. Top-scoring photos and editors picks will be featured in the book. You can pre-order copies now if you'd like!

How will it be different from the first volume?

The number of photos we'll have to choose from is going to be incredible! For starters we have the best photos not published in the first volume. Add to that the thousands of great photos photographers have uploaded since the close of the first volume, plus all the outstanding photos uploaded between now and the close of the second volume... well, it's easy to see the quality of the second volume will match (and perhaps surpass) the first! We'll feature new photographers, new photos, new subjects and new angles. It'll be a unique look at Minnesota through the eyes of Minnesota photographers.

Which photos are eligible?

If you'd like your photos to be eligible for publication in the Capture Minnesota II book, visit the Capture Minnesota II book info page, then click "opt in." Once you've opted in, all of your photos (whether uploaded in the past or in the future) will be eligible for the second volume. You do not need to re-upload anything once you click "opt-in." All of your photos will be eligible and all the votes each has accumulated will count! You must opt-into the Capture Minnesota II agreement if you want your photos eligible.

Ominous by Levi DrevlowWill new photos be considered evenly with old photos?

Yes! Photos uploaded to date and all the votes you've cast still count, but we'll be sure to look at new photos too! The best way to do this is to look at how photos do on a per-day basis. In other words, we will be looking for both high-scoring photos and photos that have a high daily score in a short amount of time. This way it's fair for both photos that have been collecting votes for a year and photos that are uploaded today going forward.

What's the timeline?

There are three two key dates: February 1, 2013 is the last day for new photo submissions and voting to be considered for Capture Minnesota II book. May 10, 2013 is when we expect the Capture Minnesota II book to be released (just in time for Mother's Day, Father's Day and graduations across the state).

Now, get out there and capture our beautiful area in photography that spans all seasons, then opt-in, upload your photos and vote to shape the Capture Minnesota II book!
