The Plainfield Public Library's annual photo contest theme for 2016 is 'The Best of Plainfield: People, Places, Things'.
Entries in the contest will be exhibited at the in the Anne Louise Davis Galley at the library during the months of November and December.
The contest, made possible by generous support of the Friends of the Plainfield Public Library, invites amateur and professional photographers to submit up to five contemporary photographs of Plainfield locales, activities or people reflecting the theme. Cash prizes and ribbons are awarded at the reception opening the exhibit.
With extensive historic photographic collections documenting Plainfield life and activities back to the mid-19th century, the photo contest is intended to make the gathering of a contemporary record of the community an ongoing process, according to Library Director Mary Ellen Rogan.
Complete details on the contest and the required submission form are available on the Library's website (see here; the form is available here [PDF]).
The deadline for entries for this year's contest is September 30.
