Geauga County Public Library’s Third Annual Photography Contest Underway

Geauga County – March 28, 2022 – GCPL invites local photographers to showcase their talent by entering original photographs into our third annual Photography Contest, made up of two juried categories: one for teens and another for adults.

Submissions will be taken between the dates of March 28 – April 24. All photographs entered will be on view for a period of public vote via GCPL’s Facebook page from April 29 – May 12. The top ten finalists will then be juried to 1st, 2nd and 3rd for each category by local photographer Catherine McManus. First place winner in each category will receive a $50 Amazon gift card. Second and third place prizes will also be awarded. The top 3 from each category will be exhibited in June at our Geauga West Branch.
