The landmarks selected are featured in the "Kansas Guidebook For Explorers 2" by Marci Penner and WenDee Rowe.

In the landmark category, three overall winners will be chosen from submitted entries. First place winner will receive $200 cash. Second place winner will receive $100 cash. Third place winner will receive $50 cash. All three overall winning photos will be printed and displayed at the Meridian Center through 2019. Additional photos may also be displayed.

All high resolution entries in either category will also be considered for inclusion in the 2019 Best of Newton Calendar. There is no charge to enter either category. Judges will consider appeal of the image to potential visitors, technical merit and creativity.
