An independent judging panel comprised of local photographic professionals and community members will review the photographs based on technical quality, artistic composition, texture and light, and overall representation of the theme.
An overall winner will be awarded the grand prize of $500. Additional prizes in the amount of $100 each will be awarded in the other categories (2), as well as an optional prize (1) for a municipality, if warranted in the opinion of the judges.
