a chance to win very cool prizes: theater tickets for adults and other items for youth 17 and under.
details for the photo contest and the festival are posted here. In a nutshell, photographs can be submitted until midnight July 31 either on Instagram, by using using the hashtag #SoTelegraph, or by posting or sharing publicly on the Sundays on Telegraph Facebook page.
