Lowell Photography Contest
A visual celebration of Lowell National Historical Park and the City of Lowell has begun with the start of the biennial Lowell Photography Contest. The contest runs from May 1st, 2011 to October 1st, 2011 – both teens and adults can enter up to three photographs taken anytime in 2011.
Prizes include public exhibition in a Park gallery/exhibit, official recognition from the National Park Service, and an invitation to a special event at Lowell National Historical Park in November 2011.
Massachusetts photographers have consistently recognized Lowell as “one of the state’s most photogenic cities,” and the contest encourages both amateur and professional photographers to take a close, creative look at the heritage and visual essence of Lowell. America’s National Parks are world renown for possessing some of the most compelling historical and natural environments ever captured on film. Lowell’s blend of industrial heritage and cultural diversity make the city one of America’s unique National Park areas.
Photographs of any historical, cultural, or natural subject will be accepted. This year’s contest includes two special submission categories for photos featuring historic preservation or cultural activities. The contest will highlight Lowell’s impressive preservation efforts and its distinct cultural landscape.
A panel of local judges will evaluate photos based on originality, artistic composition, photographic technique, and technical execution. Three winners will be selected from ten finalists in both the teen and adult categories. A single Grand Prize winner will also be selected. All participants will receive official certificates from the National Park Service recognizing their photographic work and promotion of Lowell’s heritage. Winners and finalists will be announced in November 2011.
