SPRINGFIELD — The Springfield Free Public Library is offering an opportunity for amateur photographers of all ages to win prizes, exhibit their work, and become a part of Springfield’s history. The theme of the contest is “Springfield at Work and Play”. Photographers will have the chance to contribute to the building of Springfield’s visual archives for future historians, and the photographs will be available on the Springfield Free Public Library web site and the New Jersey Digital Highway (njdigitalhighway.org) site for future generations.
Each contestant may enter up to two 8×10 or 11×14 framed photographs. Frames should be basic black and the entries may be dropped off at the library in person or by mail. Photographs must also be submitted on a CD as a tiff file. Contestants may obtain one free print from Mack Camera for each entry using a coupon available at the library, where the entry form is also available. All entries must be received by October 15th.
Entries will be judged by a panel and winners will be selected in several categories. All framed entries will be hung in the Donald B. Palmer Museum from Nov. 15 through Dec. 28. They will also be shown on the library website. Winners will be announced at a reception to be held on Sunday, Nov. 21 at 2 p.m.
For further information, call 973-376-4930. The Springfield Free Public Library is located at 66 Mountain Avenue, Springfield.
