Montana Standard looking for Santa photos
Remember when you were a kid and you couldn't wait to sit on Santa's lap so you could tell him all the things you "just had to have" for Christmas?
Sometimes a photograph was taken to capture the moment.
The Montana Standard is looking for just these photos, particularly if it's on the humorous side.
Send your photo, in .jpg format, to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call Tracy Thornton at 406-496-5552 to set up a time to scan your treasured photograph. Deadline for submission is Monday, Dec. 18.
The best photographs will be featured Christmas Eve in our Big Sky section. All photos will be viewed in a gallery online.
