WCC announces first-ever Community Photo Contest
The Whitin Community Center is excited to announce its first-ever “Community Photo Contest” in honor of the facility’s 100th anniversary!
Using the prompt “What does community look like to you?,” participants are urged to share their best photos that celebrate community in the Blackstone Valley. The WCC’s Community Photo Contest is accepting submissions through February 24th. There will be winners in the Kids, Amateur, and Professional categories, as well as a “Community Choice” winner and recipients of several special judges awards. There is no entry fee, although donations to fund a display for the winning photographs are accepted; click the “Donate” button at the top of the WCC homepage and select the photo contest from the campaign drop-down menu. Get creative, and remember that community comes in all different forms!
Submissions will be accepted online and in person. Email the submission form and one photograph in digital JPG format to [email protected] by February 24th; send a separate email for each different entry, including the photograph and a new submission form. In person submissions can be turned in at the WCC Member Services Desk along with a printed submission form. Photographs submitted without submission forms will not be considered in judging. Submission forms and a detailed contest description can be found online at https://www.whitincommunitycenter.com/programs/events/.
Winners in the Kids, Amateur, and Professional categories will each win four discounted tickets to the Boston Museum of Fine Art, a gift card to a Boston restaurant, and WCC 100th anniversary merchandise. The Community Choice winner and special award recipients will receive WCC 100th anniversary merchandise. All entrants will have the opportunity to be featured in WCC promotional materials, social media, and in the WCC 100th Anniversary Gala photo display!
