The Library Photo Contest is back for the eighth year with an exciting theme: Picture Perfect Patterns. Bloomfield Township residents of all ages are invited to explore the captivating world of patterns in our everyday lives. Patterns surround us, from the intricate designs in nature to the geometric shapes of cityscapes and the repetitive forms in textiles and architecture. Unleash your creativity, whether through black and white compositions, vivid color contrasts, or abstract interpretations.

Photos may be submitted from January 8 – March 17. Winners will be announced at the Photo Contest Reception on Saturday, April 13, 2024. Explore the world through your lens and discover the artistry in repetition!

All ages may enter. Entries will be grouped into three age categories (12 and younger; 13-18; and 19 and older). The deadline to enter photos is March 17, 2024, at midnight. 

Before submitting your photos, please review the contest rules.
