2020 Photo Contest Web Banner

Bloomfield Township Public Library is pleased to announce the fourth annual photo contest! This year’s theme is “in motion”.  Your challenge is to photograph the movement of an object or body. To momentarily stop it with your camera. A bird in flight, a dog running, a wave dramatically crashing onto a beach. Photographs can be either color or black and white; can be digital or print. All ages may enter. Entrants will be grouped by age (up to age 13; 13-18; and 18 and up). The contest opens January 13, 2020. To be eligible, photos must be taken by Bloomfield Township residents between May 1, 2019, and March 15, 2020. The deadline to enter photos is March 15, 2020, at midnight. Before submitting your photos, please review the contest rules.

Winners will be announced and honored at a reception at the Library on Saturday, April 18, 2020. Look for details on the Library’s website and inside the Library.
