As part of our Summer Reading Fun Fest (SRFF) 2011 program the Palm Springs Public Library is calling for adult amateur photographers to enter our SRFF Photography Contest. The theme is Novel Destinations: Your best/favorite vacation photo, and all photo entries must depict this theme as interpreted by the photographer and their camera.
This photography contest is only open to Adults (ages 18 +) amateur photographers. There will be prizes awarded for First, Second and Third place; the first prize winner will receive a gift card for $100, the second prize winner will receive a gift card for $50 and the third prize winner will receive a gift card for $25. Photos may be displayed in the Library, but will be returned to the photographer at the end of summer.
To enter the photography contest, go to the Library’s web site at http://www.palmspringslibrary.org and print out an entry form from the home page. Then bring the completed form, along with an unframed, 8 x 10 print of the photo, to the Library by June 30th at 5:00 p.m. No late entries will be able to be accepted.
Judges from the community, with experience in the arts or as a photographer, have been chosen to review the entries and select the winners. Prizes will be awarded at the Summer Reading Fun Fest Finale on Sat. July 30th at 10:30 a.m.
Along with the photography contest there are other fun classes and workshops that showcase this year’s theme of travel and other cultures! All programming is FREE and there is something for every age group.
The Summer Reading Fun Fest is a great way for families to read together and ensure kids continue learning and growing their reading skills throughout the summer. Registration is available online at the Library’s web site at http://www.palmspringslibrary.org or in-person at the Library.
