For its 10th anniversary, the Arts Herndon calendar competition is providing an opportunity for upcoming photographers to showcase their skills.
Both amateur and professional photographers from around the area are invited to submit photos within the town limits of Herndon that could potentially be used for an upcoming calendar, according to the Arts Herndon website.
“The purpose of this competition is to not only to produce an amazing 2021 calendar from the town, but to offer all photographers, residents and students the opportunity to share their vision and talents and be recognized even in these challenging times,” the website said.
Competition organizers ask that the snapshot of the work encompass town life with an emphasis on beauty and richness of experience.
Anyone interested in submitting a photo can do so by emailing [email protected] until June 12, the website said, adding that each person can submit up to two photos. Along with a brief description, people should name the photo “lastname_firstname_email_Title of Photo.”
Typically, award winners would be invited to a public reception, but due to social distancing guidelines and the closure of ArtSpace, winning submissions will instead be displayed at an online gallery and possibly a walk-by window display in the town, according to Arts Herndon.
Anyone seeking more information can email Arts Herndon.
