OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - Oct. 1, 2006 - Recognizing that Halloween is one of the most popular days of the year for taking pictures, Sprint (NYSE: S) and Fujifilm, U.S.A., Inc., are adding to the fun by sponsoring the Picture Perfect Halloween Photo Contest.

Now through Nov. 12, consumers can submit photos in a variety of Halloween-themed categories for a chance to win the grand prize: a trip for four to HERSHEYPARK in Pennsylvania for the Hershey Trick or Treat Adventure in 2007. The first-, second- and third-place prizes in each category, respectively, are a Fujifilm FinePix F30 digital camera, a Sprint Power Vision SM FUSIC by LG camera phone and 100 YourStamps, personalized postage made with customers’ own photos.

This contest affords a creative environment for people to share these images online as well as the opportunity to win terrific prizes.”

The website is full of information for creating a spook-tacular Halloween, including great recipes, decorating ideas, collectible famous monster portraits, photo-taking tips from the New York Institute of Photography, scary stories and a map of haunted places across the United States.

Sprint customers can also enter photos, view others’ entries and vote on them right from their Sprint phones. Customers can also register for the contest at Sprint stores.
