2018 NWRL Transformation photography contest

Staff Report

The Northwestern Regional Library is pleased to announce our upcoming annual traveling photography contest to be held on April 10, 2018 at the Charles H. Stone Memorial Library in Pilot Mountain.

The contest is open to all registered patrons of the member libraries of Northwestern Regional Library System. A person may register for a library card at any branch library in Allegany, Stokes, Surry, or Yadkin counties.

All submitted images must be created using film or a digital camera. Categories include color, black and white, digitally altered and abstract. The contest is open to youths ages 5-17 and adults.

This year Northwestern Regional Library celebrates transformation and the role we play in the evolution and growth of our communities. Libraries listen. We think creatively. We seek fresh solutions. We open to new opportunities, and we celebrate growth, movement, new perspectives, and transformation. We invite you to share your photographs of “Transformation” in the NWRL 2018 Photography Show. We eagerly look forward to showcasing the images you capture of our ever-changing communities and world.

Branch libraries will be accepting entries through March 2, 2018.

A workshop will be held at 5:30 pm before the reception, which starts at 6:45 pm with heavy hors d’oeuvres. Awards will be presented afterwards. Both events are free and open to the public. A portion of the photos will travel to all member libraries throughout the upcoming year.

The “Transformation” Northwestern Regional Library Traveling Photography Exhibit will be on display at the Yadkin County Public Library during the month of January. The contest is sponsored by all member libraries of the Northwestern Regional Library.

About 75 photographs by library patrons from throughout Alleghany, Stokes, Surry, and Yadkin counties are in the collection. The exhibit includes a variety of photographs including color, black and white, and digitally altered entries by children, teens and adults.

A photography contest was held in March and was open to all patrons of the Northwestern Regional Library. Prizes were awarded in various age categories.
