Eligibility:
Amateur photographers may enter up to two photographs that were taken during 2022. There will be one winner in each age group, as well as one fan favorite winner. The categories are Children (ages 5 – 8), Tween (ages 9 – 12) Teen (ages 13 – 17), and Adult (age 18 and up).

Photographs must be original. Only basic editing (such as cropping, adjustment of brightness and color saturation, and red-eye reduction) will be allowed. No extensive Photoshop work or special effects. Any type of camera or device may be used to take the photograph.

It is the artist’s responsibility to obtain releases from subjects in portraits.

Milton Public Library has the right to refuse to display an entry based upon questionable content, e.g. nudity is not allowed.

All entries must be printed or developed on photo paper. For ease of display, a size of 5 x 7 inches is requested.  Entries should NOT be framed or mounted. Entries must have the identification labels provided filled out and attached to the back of the print.

Receiving:
Photographers may deliver their work during library hours starting October 1 until October 28, 2022. Entries will not be accepted after 6:00 p.m. on Friday, October 28.

Judging:
This is a juried competition. Our judges are professional photographers who volunteer their time for this event. We appreciate, and are grateful for, their donated time. Judging will take place during the first 2 weeks of November. Prizes will be awarded in each category, with one fan favorite chosen by vote.

Display:
Photos will be displayed at the library through November 30, 2022.  We ask that displayed photographs not be removed before November 30, 2022. All submitted photographs will be handled with care, but the Milton Public Library will not be responsible for any loss or damage while on display.

Notification:
Contest winners will be notified by phone or email. A list of the winners will be posted on our website, www.miltonpubliclibrary.org.

Pick up:
Photographs may be picked up at the front desk any time after December 1, 2022.
