8th Annual Photography Contest
Dust off your camera. Fine tune your creative photography skills. The North Perth Arts Council and Friends of the North Perth Public Library have partnered again for the 8th Annual Amateur Photography Contest.
This years’ theme is Our Country…Our Community. Local photographers of all ages and abilities are encouraged to capture images that showcase their talent, and highlight what makes Canada and North Perth a great place to live. Landscape vista, colourful sunset, family activity, travel sights or some subject that just caught your eye, make sure to enter your best shots in this years’ contest. The big picture or the smaller details, show use what you’ve seen.
There are categories for students and adults to enter. Cash prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place entries are awarded with the financial support of the Friends of the Library and the North Perth Arts Council.
Contest entries are due mid November, so this gives interested photographers all summer and early fall to capture their images and prepare their entries. The entries will be displayed in the Listowel branch of the NP Public Library during December.
Contest rules, entry forms, and guidelines are available to download from the arts council web site, NorthPerthArts.ca The download links are found below the Photography Contest poster.
The challenge has been issued. Let your creativity and talent go wild.
