Photographs should be taken between July 1st, 2018 and September 30th, 2018 and submitted by October 5, 2018. Contestants may submit up to 5 high resolution digital images to: firstname.lastname@example.org Open to amateur photographers only. (An amateur photographer is defined as a person who receives less than 50% of their annual income through photography.)
Model Release: Photographs that contain recognizable people must be accompanied by a model release form signed by each person photographed. If any photographed individuals are under the age of 18 years, the youth’s parent or legal guardian must also sign the photo release. Here’s a model release form you can download and fill out:

Awards will be based on artistic excellence and historical value. One award will be given for the best Morristown photograph and one for the best Morris Township photograph. The awards are a $50 gift certificate to the Jockey Hollow Bar and Kitchen and a $50 gift certificate to 70 South St. Gallery. Winners will be announced on November 7th at 7pm in Library’s lower level meeting room.
