The deadline to enter the The Northwestern Regional Library art and photography contest is Friday.
The contest winners, along with some other select pieces, will be featured in the library system’s annual traveling photography contest to be held on April 25 at the Charles H. Stone Memorial Library in Pilot Mountain.
The contest is open to all registered patrons of the member libraries of Northwestern Regional Library System. A person may register for a library card at any branch library in Alleghany, Stokes, Surry, or Yadkin counties.
All submitted images must be created using film or a digital camera. Categories include color, black and white, digitally altered and abstract. The contest is open to adults and also youths ages 5-17.
This year Northwestern Regional Library celebrates transformation “and the role we play in the evolution and growth of our communities,” contest organizes said in a statement regarding the contest and impending deadline.
“Libraries listen. We think creatively. We seek fresh solutions. We open to new opportunities, and we celebrate growth, movement, new perspectives, and transformation. We invite you to share your photographs of Transformation in the NWRL 2017 Photography Show.”
Branch libraries will be accepting entries through Friday.
A workshop will be held at 5:30 p.m. before the reception, which starts at 6:45 p.m with heavy hors d’oeuvres. Awards will be presented afterwards. Both events are free and open to the public. A portion of the photos will travel to all member libraries throughout the upcoming year.
