Have you been on vacation yet? If so, we want to see your pictures.

But don’t wait – you have until Tuesday to upload your favorite travel photos at

Readers will get to vote for their favorites July 19-26. Those with the most will be featured in the Sioux City Journal in a special Destinations section Aug. 23 that will be distributed around the country.

If you’re chosen, you’ll be eligible to win one of three top prizes -- $1,000 for first place, $500 for second and $250 for third. Additionally, anyone who submits an entry to the contest will be eligible for one of three $100 prizes awarded randomly.

Last year, newspaper readers from across the country submitted more than 10,000 photos showing everything from the Eiffel Tower to children having fun at the beach.

This year, we’re looking for that same broad mix.

So, what are you waiting for? Cycle through your cellphone photos and see if you have something you’d like to share.

Remember, you have until Tuesday to upload your photos at

Beginning today

A new feature – the Week in Review – starts today in The Journal. It’s a quick look at national and international events that occurred during the previous week.

Designed to brief you on the news you need to know, it’s a no-frills approach to all that transpired in the previous week.

Let us know what you think. Send me an email at

And Tuesday…

You'll want to go to our Facebook page (Sioux City Journal) at 10 a.m. for a Facebook Live broadcast. We’ll be at UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s to give you some valuable health information and afford you an opportunity to ask questions.

It’s a new venture for us – one we think you’ll like. If you aren’t available at 10, don’t worry. We’ll have the broadcast on our Facebook page right after it airs.
