Amateur and professional photographers have the opportunity to submit photos that demonstrate the lifestyle, beauty and assets of Wicomico County for Wicomico County Tourism’s 2021 Photo Contest.
Photos can be of anything taken in Wicomico County in the past two years, although some suggested topics include nature and the outdoors, culture, shopping, food and drink, wineries and breweries, festivals and events, and history.
The contest is open to photographers ages 18 and older. It is free to enter the contest, and each photographer can submit up to 10 photos.
The first-place prize is $500 and the winner’s photograph displayed on the Wicomico County Tourism website, in a Wicomico County Tourism e-newsletter and in the next published Wicomico County Tourism visitors guide. Second- and third-place winners will be awarded $250 and $100, respectively, with the opportunity for their winning photographs to be displayed on the tourism website and in the guide.
The contest is open now, and entries will be accepted until Aug. 13 at 5 p.m.
