Essex County, NJ – The public is invited to participate in the Annual Essex County Parks Photography Contest.  All photographic entries must highlight a visit to the historic Essex County Parks System. The free contest is open to the public and the deadline to submit entries is Wednesday, September 17th.

“Our annual photo competition is an opportunity for photographers of all ages to explore our gorgeous and beautiful parks system and share their experience through their photography. It’s a great way to display your artistic talents, have fun and enhance your appreciation of nature,” DiVincenzo said. “I look forward to seeing the photographs that are submitted because each one offers a unique perspective of our historic Parks System.”
