Owing to recent floods in the Mississippi Valley and the crippled condition of all lines of transportation, it was not possible for the Eastman Professional School, with the large amount of apparatus it necessarily carries, to reach Cincinnati for the School dates of April 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

In fact we understand the city was so completely cut off from the outside world that it was not possible for photographers to reach Cincinnati had the School been there, so the disappointment was not so great as it might have been. As it was, trouble was experienced in moving the School from Detroit to Memphis.

We trust there may be no more such disasters, with their accompanying loss of life and property, and we take this opportunity of extending our sympathy to those in the storm and flood districts who have suffered loss.

A date will be arranged for the Eastman Professional School to visit Cincinnati in the early fall. In this way the present schedule will not be broken up and photographers of Cincinnati and the surrounding towns will still have a chance to visit the 1913 School.

How To Win

Do you remember having seen a certain picture in the pages of your favorite magazine, which made you feel that your happiness would be complete if you owned the car, and could take a spin over the beautiful road, shown in that picture?

Perhaps it was a picture which made you or your wife or the children desire to possess something less expensive than an automobile, but you remember the tug at your purse strings, and how you finally had to buy that particular advertised article to keep peace in your family.

If you have had such an experience - and who has not? - you must know the kind of picture that is going to win the big money in our Advertising Contest.

And you can make such pictures once you have the idea.

Photographic quality must not be lost sight of, but it is the story the picture tells, and the desire it creates for a Kodak that will count most.

One must look at the picture and feel that amateur photography is necessary to their happiness and peace of mind - that their vacation will not be complete without a picture story of the good times, or that the simplicity of the Kodak system of photography is within reach of the boy or girl who has teased father and mother for a Brownie.

You get the idea - you have the ability, and the prizes are large enough to make it well worth your while to try for them.

You are also relieved of the handicap of competing against the man who is more experienced in this work. Previous prize winners are not allowed to compete in Class A, but must compete with one another for the two Grand Prizes-$500.00, First; $400.00, Second.

Any professional photographer, other than above, may compete in Class A, for the $1400.00 in prize money.

There are five prizes and they are all worth the effort you make for them.

Class A

Professional Photographers Only. Negatives, 5 x 7 or larger.

First Prize..... $500.00

Second Prize..... 400.00

Third Prize..... 250.00

Fourth Prize..... 150.00

Fifth Prize..... 100.00

We are always on the lookout for good advertising pictures that's why we have these contests. And we usually buy some of the less successful pictures for future advertising purposes. So our prize money is, in reality, even larger than we advertise it to be.

Large advertisers in all lines are constantly on the lookout for pictures that will help sell their goods. Your interest in this contest and the experience you gain may lead to the making of other such pictures, which may prove a very profitable way of employing a little spare time.

Match your ideas against the other man's, and in making the pictures, keep in mind the one point; the picture must show the pleasures of picture-making must create a desire for the goods advertised.
