Hohenwald’s Strand Art Gallery is once again sponsoring a Photography Contest that is open to amateur photographers. Entrants in the contest will compete for cash prizes, ribbons, and the honor of having their photographs exhibited. Fourteen of the photographs exhibited will also be selected to appear in the 2014 edition of the Art Gallery’s Community Calendar.
There are ten categories: Wild Animals, Zoo Animals, Birds, Landscape, Architectural, Manipulated Images, People, Plant Life and Flowers, Whimsical and Pets.
The first place winner in each category will receive a cash prize and a grand prize winner will be selected from the first place winners with the grand prize winner also receiving a cash prize. First, second, and third place winners in each category will receive ribbons.
Winners will be announced at a reception to be held in the Strand Theatre on Thursday, September 26 from 7 to 9 p.m. Photographs selected for exhibit will be on display in the Theatre from September 26 through Sunday, October 13.
Entry forms and contest rules are available at the Gallery or as a download (Strand Photo Contest Entry 2013). All entries must be received at the Strand Art Gallery by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, September 13. For additional information call 931-295-3219 or Kenny Graves at 931-306-9194.
