West Shore photo contest focuses on the arts

Cash prizes for art-centric photography, contest closes June 30

Amateur shooters are being invited to submit images featuring the vibrant local arts scene and local heritage in the West Shore Arts Council’s Summer Photo Contest.

“We are the lead advocate for public understanding of, participation in and appreciation of the arts culture and heritage for the West Shore,” said council executive director Laura Davis.

“We want to interact more with the community and felt this was a way to reach out and connect with photographers of art.”

Applicants may submit a maximum of three images, featuring anything from architecture, dance and performance to music, sculpture, painting or even local landscape.

Photographers of the top three images selected will be awarded cash prizes of $200 for first place, $100 for second and $50 for third.

The winning images will be featured on new promotional material for the Arts Council, including rack cards, signage and online.

Full contest details can be found at westshorearts.org under the Events heading. The contest is open through June 30.

Photo submissions with captions can be emailed to info@westshorearts.org.
