The Appleton Museum of Art through the College of Central Florida is holding a photography contest.
Titled “Mobile Photography Contest: Take Comfort. Take Heart. Take Photos,” the sixth annual contest is accepting entries through June 28.
This year, the Appleton is asking for photos that reflect how you found peace or joy in isolation over the past few months. Whether you were alone or with family, whether you preferred to garden, binge-watch “Tiger King” or perfect your culinary skills, each of our daily lives looked very different during this global, shared experience.
All ages are invited to participate and each person may submit up to two photos. Photos must be taken with a mobile phone, fit the theme and be tasteful in content.
To enter, email your mobile photos to AppletonMuseum@cf.edu. Photos must be sent via email and will not be accepted through Facebook or other social media. If you send more than two photos, your entries will not be accepted.
On July 5, all photos will be uploaded to the Appleton Facebook page, where members of the public will have a chance to vote until July 19 for their favorite.
Photography-related prizes will be awarded to the photo with the most “Likes” on Facebook, and to one photo selected by our guest judge, Dr. Saul Reyes, who is a photographer and vice president for student affairs at College of Central Florida. Winning photos will be featured on Appleton social media accounts and in the fall issue of “Artifacts” magazine.
The two winners will be announced on July 20 and also will be contacted via email to arrange pickup or shipping of their prize. For more information, email AppletonMuseum@cf.edu.
