Local photographers, professional and amateur, are encouraged to submit recent photos of local scenery, people, or events. Email your photos to mindy@kfsk.org. Please include the photographer’s full name, where and when the photo was taken.

Each Friday in August, the photo with the most “likes” on KFSK’s Facebook page will win a bag of Raven’s Brew coffee.

KFSK prefers photos that have not been submitted to other organizations and must be appropriate for all ages. Limit two photos per person per week.
