The Orange Arts & Culture Council is sponsoring a photo contest for students in grades four through twelve. The annual “Picture This” photo contest is open to Orange residents. Deadline for entries is October 30.
The photos should represent people, places or things in Orange or subjects of interest to the photographer. The prints must be eight by ten inches in size and unframed. The photo can be color or black and white.
Students entering the contest should include a short description of the photos (they can enter more than one picture) and include their name, address, and phone number, school and grade level on the back on the photo.
Photographers are encouraged to experiment with a variety of shots. Try taking pictures of flowers, your pets, an interesting scene or a farm animal. The possibilities are endless.
Prizes will be awarded in three age categories: grades four through six, grades seven and eight and grades nine through twelve. First place winner will be awarded $25, second place $15 and honorable mention $10. All winning photos will be displayed.
Those entering the contest should mail their entries to: OACC, P.O. Box 1037, Orange, CT 06477. All submitted photos become the property of OACC and will not be returned.
