Brick Store hosts annual photo contest

The fourth annual Brick Store Museum Photography Contest will accept submissions beginning July 15, until the close of the contest on Sept. 5. Photographs can be entered in one of three categories: Kennebunk, Travel, or Nature. Participants younger than 16 are invited to submit their entries in a separate children’s category. Winners will be selected from each category. Each participant may submit a maximum of three entries. Three artists from southern Maine will serve as judges for the event. In 2013, the museum received more than 100 images for consideration.

With the contest’s motto of Capture Culture, the museum asks amateur photographers of all ages to participate in the documenting of the world in the 21st century. Edith Barry, the founder of the Brick Store Museum, was an artist and world traveler. In more than 60 years of her travels, she photographed the places she visited, as close as Kennebunk and as far as Singapore.

Photographers of all ages are invited to enter up to three photographs. Each entry must consist of a digital image and entry form. Every image entered will appear on the Brick Store Museum’s website from July 16 to Sept. 6 for viewing. Winning photographs, including Visitor’s Choice, will be displayed in the museum’s history showcase in fall 2014.

For more information on contest rules and to print an entry form, visit www.brickstoremuseum.org or call the museum at 985-4802.
