C-VILLE Weekly is seeking submissions for our photo contest, presented by LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph—specifically creative, high-quality images of local scenes (and people in local scenes!). Prizes will be awarded, and winners will be published in the June 8 issue of C-VILLE, alongside coverage of the LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph, held June 13-19 in Charlottesville.
The contest judge will be Mary Virginia Swanson, executive director of the LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph. Swanson earned her master’s in photography from Arizona State University and has coordinated educational, exhibition and publication programs for a number of institutions and organizations. She has directed educational programs for The Friends of Photography including the Ansel Adams Workshop, headed special projects at Magnum Photos and in 1991 founded SWANSTOCK, an innovative photo agency that managed licensing rights for fine art photographers.
Deadline to submit photos is May 20. Hand-delivered or mailed entries (308 E. Main St., Charlottesville VA 22902) must have photographer’s name and phone number securely attached. You can enter on Instagram (#cvillephotocontest) or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org (“C-VILLE photo contest” in the subject line). Prints will not be returned.
