Final Call for Photo Contest Entries

The Society is pleased to invite all photographers, including amateur and expert (and any level in between), to participate in an open photography show, “From Cultivation to Culinary Delights: Interpretive Photographs of Food in Cecil County.” The photographer is free to interpret food in Cecil County in any form – agriculture, harvesting, cooking, business, and industry (such as grocery stores, restaurants) – through photography. The photographs will be displayed at the Elkton Alliance, 101 East Main Street, from August 10 through September 22, 2007. The following rules apply for all entries: (1) the photographer may submit only one photograph for the show; (2) the photograph must be taken of an image located in Cecil County, MD; (3) the photographer must submit

two original prints of the one photograph [one print will be hung in the exhibit and one print will become part of the permanent collection of the Historical Society of Cecil County]; (4) the photographer may use any medium of photography, including digital enhancements to an existing photograph; (5) the photographer may write a short description of, or inspiration for their photograph (not required, but suggested); and (6) the photograph must be submitted not later than August 9, 2007 to the Historical Society of Cecil County, 135 East Main Street, Elkton, MD 21921. All entries will be judged and prizes will be awarded.

The photography show is co-sponsored by the Historical Society of Cecil County and the Cecil County Arts Council and is being held in conjunction with the Smithsonian Institution’s “Key Ingredients: America by Food,” a traveling exhibition that examines regional food, at the Elkton Arts Center from August 10 through September 22, 2007.

The first prize is $300 cash and the second prize is $100 gift certificate to Bentley's Restaurant. The third prize is a joint membership to the sponsoring organizations. The prizes are underwritten by Jodlbauer's Furniture Elkton.
