Aspiring photojournalist? Just an avid shutterbug? No matter your level of expertise, here’s your chance to share your special photographs that reveal the places and people of Baltimore. Winning photographers receive prizes, and the best images will be showcased in 2018 wall calendar.

Photographs must represent one of the four contest categories listed below. Photographs must be taken within the boundaries of the Baltimore National Heritage Area (with the exception of entries for the Best of What's to Come category). Please read the complete Rules and Requirements before submitting your photograph for your chance to win! All entries must be submitted electronically by October 15, 2017.

Why is the contest period so long? We want to give you a chance to capture all the seasons here in Baltimore -- fall colors to wintry landscapes to springtime blossoms.



All of the submitted photos must fall under one of the four categories listed below.

BEST OF... Baltimore's Parks
Photographs that illustrate the city's diverse parks and show how visitors and residents make the most of the city's greenspaces.
