PAWTUCKET – Grab your cameras and snap that picture! The City of Pawtucket and Camera Werks announced the 21st Annual City of Pawtucket Photo Contest. Twelve winning photos will be selected by a panel of local photographers and placed in the 2020 City Calendar.
This annual contest provides an opportunity to bring awareness to daily life, historic locations and the ever changing landscape of Pawtucket through the lens of a camera. The contest is open to residents and non-residents alike, but the photo must be taken in Pawtucket. After a public call for photo contest themes was advertised in January, “Pawtucket Works” by Jax Adele of Pawtucket was selected.
Submitted photos should be mounted on foamcore or mountboard, but not framed; overall size of the mounted photo should not be smaller than 8”x10” or larger than 12”x18”. All photos will be displayed at the Blackstone Valley Visitor Center during the City of Pawtucket’s Arts Festival in September. The Mayor’s Choice Award will receive a $100 cash prize. First Place will receive a $75.00 cash prize. Second Place will receive a $50.00 cash prize and other remaining winners will receive gift certificates. Winners will be announced on Sunday, September 29 at 4:00pm in the Visitor Center Gallery.
