Plainfield shutterbugs take note! It's time to start shooting for the Plainfield Public Library's 11th annual photo contest.
This year's theme is: The Best of Plainfield: People, Places and Things.
The contest, which has become a favorite of both amateur and professional photographers in the Queen City, helps the Library augment its growing collection of photographs documenting daily life and scenes from the viewpoints of its diverse residents.
Entries in the contest become part of the Library's permanent collection of photographs documenting Plainfield over the past one hundred plus years.
Details, including submission requirements and entry forms, are available on the Library's website (see here) or on the information table at the Library, Park Avenue at West 8th Street.
This fun contest is free to enter and open to all -- amateur and professional -- regardless of age. Submissions become the property of the Library and part of its Local History collection.
You may begin submitting entries immediately; the deadline for submissions is Friday, September 30, 2016.
Entries will be on exhibit from November 12 through the end of the year in the Library's Anne Louise Davis Gallery.
The opening reception on November 12 will feature cash awards and/or ribbons to those whose work is judged to best meet the year's theme.
For more information, contact the Library's Local History Department at (908) 757-1111 x136.
