MORRISTOWN, NJ - The library's North Jersey History and Genealogy Center invites interested persons to enter their first photograph contest. This is an exciting way to celebrate our local history through the art of photography.

The photographs should be taken by amateur photographers of Morristown and Morris Township parks, streetscapes and structures (interiors are welcome) between April 1st and May 31st.

Contestants may submit up to 5 photographs, at 300dpi, electronically to nj.historycenter@gmail.com by June 2nd. 

An amateur photographer is defined as a person who receives less than 50% of their annual income through photography.
 

Model Release: Photographs that contain recognizable people must be accompanied by a model release form signed by each person photographed. If any photographed individuals are under the age of 18 years, the youth’s parent or legal guardian must also sign the photo release.

Please include the date the photograph was taken, your name, contact information and the location of the photograph. 

Awards will be given to the photographers of the three best photographs at an awards program on Thursday, June 9th at 7 p.m. in the meeting room in the library’s lower level. 

All submissions automatically agree to allow the library to use the images in library publications, social media or in future exhibits. Photographers will be cited whenever and wherever we post the photographs.
