Each year the Views Of The Valley Photo Contest seems to draw a majority of entries that portray either bugs, birds, or various types of plant life. While these photos have made lovely cover art for City print and online publications, this year the City challenges its amateur photographers to think outside of the box with the theme “Anything But Bugs, Birds, And Botanicals.”
The theme isn’t meant to exclude any photos or ideas but rather encourage residents to find beauty in other aspects of Golden Valley, like its recreational amenities, locations, community events, and people.
Golden Valley residents of all ages can submit up to three photos taken in Golden Valley for a chance to win a cash prize. Deadline to enter is Fri, June 17, 4:30 pm. Visit the City website for details.
Please note that photos containing bugs, birds, and plant life will still be accepted and judged on the same scale.
For more information and to enter the contest, visit the City website.
