The Northwestern Regional Library has announced its upcoming eighth annual traveling photography contest to be held on March 25 at the Charles H. Stone Memorial Library in Pilot Mountain.
The contest is open to all registered patrons of the member libraries of Northwestern Regional Library System. A person may register for a library card at any branch library in Allegany, Stokes, Surry, or Yadkin counties.
All submitted images must be created using film or digital camera. Categories include color, black and white, digitally altered and an abstract category that has been added to the contest this year. The contest is open to youths ages 5-17 and adults. This year the level of Professional/Semi-Professional also has been added. This level is for more advanced photographers who sell their photos.
In conjunction with our Geek the Library campaign, library leaders are interested in seeing what the people of the communities “geek.” Those entering should show what they are passionate about in their photography entries this year.
Branch libraries will be accepting entries through Feb. 21.
A workshop will be held at 5:30 p.m. before the reception, which starts at 6:45 p.m. heavy hors d’oeuvres. Awards will be presented afterwards. Both events are free and open to the public. A portion of the photos will travel to all member libraries throughout the upcoming year.
For more information, contact a local NWRL library.
