Our 27th Annual Photography Contest and Exhibition will be held on Saturday November 11th, from 12 NOON until 4:00 PM, at the West Milford Presbyterian Church, 1452 Union Valley Road, West Milford, NJ.

Entries may be dropped off at the church on Fri, 11/10, between 6:00 and 9:00PM.

Annual Photography Contest and Exhibition

Since 1991 our Contest and Exhibition, which is open to the public, has been the highlight of our club year. Held in November, it has attracted photographers from as far away as central New Jersey.

Contest Rules and Guidelines:

One "Best in Show" Photograph will receive a Cash Prize of $50.00.
Also Two Awards of Excellence, $25.00 each as well as Four Honorable Mention & One Peoples Choice Award.


DOWNLOAD ENTRY FORM HERE (Adobe Reader or similar required)

For additional entries (more than 6), use the above entry form, but only print pages 1 & 3.

Please fill out the form at your keyboard, then print it...everything is so much easier to read that way.


Hanging Requirements

All photographs MUST be securely framed and wired. Only "ready to hang" entries will be accepted. Standard picture wire is recommended.
Eyelets should be securely screwed in/attached to wooden frames.
The use of eyelets on plastic frames is not recommended, as they will usually pull out of the frame. A spot of hot glue or epoxy may alleviate this.
Please note that any hook or eyelet that pulls out of the frame will dis-qualify the entry and it will not be hung.
The "saw-toothed" hanger (and anything similar) at left will be rejected. 
Our pegboard display boards do not allow for this type of hanger.  See other examples on the entry form.
Plain, in-expensive metal gallery type frames are available at local retailers like Micheal's or AC Moore.
