Amateur Photo Contest

This is an annual contest for amateur photographers only! Photo retouching (including filters) is prohibited. The process is as follows: Submit an entry (limit 1 photo per person) to your local branch. A local panel of judges will select three photos from each branch to move on to the next round. A central panel of judges, comprised of professional photographers from the West Windsor Arts Council, will then choose the top three photos.

The 2022 Contest has concluded. Please check in with us again around September 2023 for next year’s contest. Thanks for looking!
