    email, enter ‘Photo Show’ as the subject of the email, type your name, address, phone number, provide a
    photo title, and the theme your photos represent in the body of the email, and send the email to
    [email protected]
  • To submit your photos in hard copy, print them out on 8×10 photo paper, enclose them and a completed copy
    of this form (download) in an envelope, and send the envelope to FUMC Lenten Photo Show, 603 State Street,
