A driver may submit no more than three photos. Digital images are accepted as long as they are shipped with a print and are 300 dpi or larger. The contest deadline is July 17.
Suggested subjects include truck shots, action photos, shots of children and/or pets with a truck, close-ups of truck parts, views of the road or depictions of life on the road.
Attached to each photo should be the entrant’s name, address and telephone number and company name, address and telephone number.
