2022 Photo Contest graphic from January 17 to March 13

This year’s theme is “Tell Us a Story,” with entrants being encouraged to include the elements of a story within the frame of their photo. What is the plot? Who are the characters? Where is it taking place? This photography challenge is one of setting the scene rather than capturing a single moment. What story will you tell?

Photo submissions can be either color or black and white; digital or print. The contest opens on January 17, 2022. To be eligible, photos must be taken by Bloomfield Township residents between May 1, 2021, and March 13, 2022. 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 13, 2022, at midnight. Winners will be announced and honored at a special reception at the Library on Saturday, April 9, 2022. Look for additional details on the Library’s website.

Before submitting your photos, please review the contest rules.
