Amateur photography contest at Marianna Black Library

The Marianna Black Library in Bryson City is hosting its Second Annual “Life in Swain” amateur photography contest.

All photographs must be taken in Swain County. They may be of buildings, landscapes, nature shots, locally known locations, but the winning photos will highlight what makes Swain County unique.

The contest is open to all ages and will be divided into two groups: Adults 16 years and older and the Junior division with ages 15 and under.

Rules for the contest and entry forms will be available for pickup at the library beginning Oct. 1. Entries may be turned in beginning Oct. 4 through 13.  Entrants may submit up to three photographs. Entry fee will be $10 for the first photograph and $5 for each additional one. All entry monies will be used for prizes.

Photos will be on display at the Marianna Black Library until Oct. 30. The winning photographs will be showcased during the month of November. A panel of three local artists will judge the contest.
