Library photo contest deadline extended

The deadline for your photos of Plainfield celebrations has been extended.

Breaking news: The deadline for this year's Plainfield Public Library photo contest has been extended -- you now have until October 4 to get your entries in.

'Plainfield Celebrates!' is the theme for this year's annual photography contest sponsored by the Plainfield Public Library.

Amateur and professional photographers are invited to submit up to five photos chronicling contemporary Plainfield celebratory events -- parades, festivals, graduations, holidays, and personal events such as birthdays, promotions and retirements. Submissions must be dropped off or postmarked by this Friday, September 27.

This is the 8th year the Library has sponsored the contest, and each year gets better and larger, adding photographs of Plainfield people and life to the Library's ever-growing collection, which documents the community back to the 1860s and the early days of both photography and Plainfield's rise as a commuter suburb.

The contest is free to enter (see complete details and download entry forms here). Winners will be hung and recognized at a special opening for the show, which will then continue through November. You won't want to miss it!
