Show Us Somerset County Through YOUR Camera Lens!
Winning Entries will Receive Honorarium
August 7, 2019 – November 29, 2019
Vibrant connections happen every day in Somerset County and we need your help to capture these moments!
Whether you are an amateur or professional photographer living in Somerset County, you are invited to submit photos that showcase our vibrant communities, historic sites, engaging community events such as fairs, concerts or parades, picturesque natural landscape and recreational opportunities.
The Somerset County Board of Chosen Freeholders, in cooperation with the county Cultural & Heritage Commission and the Somerset County Business Partnership, invites residents to participate in the fifth annual “Show Us Somerset County Through Camera Lens” photo contest.
Submissions must be the original work of the applicant and not previously entered in this photo contest. A panel of judges will select two winners for each theme, as well as an overall contest winner in both the professional and amateur categories, up to a total of 18 winners! Each photographer whose artwork is selected as a winning entry will receive a $50 honorarium. The overall contest winners (one amateur, one professional) will each receive a $100 honorarium.
The four themes this year, in both professional and amateur categories:
- Community Events (ComEv) – neighborhoods, important local places, health & wellness, fairs, parades, etc.
- Natural Environment (NatEn) – parks, wildlife, lakes, rivers, forests, golf courses, etc.
- Historic Sites (Hist) – buildings, reenactments or other areas and events of historic significance to Somerset County (some inspiration).
- Recreational Opportunities (RecOpp) – leisure or other activities done for enjoyment, amusement and/or health and wellness.
Please read the following submission instructions and contest rules carefully. If you have any questions, please contact Linny Kosensky at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (908) 231-7081. Thank you for your interest!
