This contest is open to amateurs and all contestants are welcome. There is a junior category for under-16s and an adult category for everyone 16 and up. The top three winners in both categories will receive a prize and the snapshots will be judged by three local artists

For every $10 entry fee, up to three photos may be entered. Entries will be accepted until March 21. Photos will be on display at the Macon County Public Library until April 8.
