Baltimore Heritage It’s a Snap! Baltimore Photo Contest Launches
November 17, 2015
The Baltimore National Heritage Area officially launched a new photo contest at its annual meeting today at historic Westminster Hall. The contest — It’s a Snap! Baltimore — is open through July 2016 to let shutterbugs photograph the city though the seasons and to capture images of the multitude of city festivals and events.
Photographs must be taken within the boundaries of the heritage area and fall into one of four categories associated with Baltimore history. The heritage area is looking for photos that —
- Commemorate and celebrate Baltimore as the birthplace of the Star-Spangled Banner,
- Illustrate how Baltimore’s geography and natural resources shaped the city’s culture and industry,
- Showcase the city’s architectural uniqueness and the institutions that helped shape Baltimore, and
- Shed light on Baltimore’s rich diversity of cultures and traditions.
A team of judges made up of Baltimore-based artists and professionals will select a grand prize winner as well as winners and finalists for each category. The selected images will be featured in a 2017 wall calendar distributed by the heritage area. The heritage area is also working with its partners for unique sets of prizes for the winning photographs.
