Northshore’s 5th annual “Fun Photo Contest” broadens horizons with new September date

After four years of honoring the best interpretive images in its annual Fun Photo Contest, the Kenmore Heritage Society has rewritten the rules for 2019, allowing more time for picture-taking and expanding the area from which photos may be entered to include other communities in the Northshore School District.

Broadening the contest will add photo entries from Kenmore, Bothell, and Woodinville.

“We have been having so much fun with this contest for four years that we wanted to share the fun with neighboring communities,” said Jo Ann Evans, president of the Kenmore Heritage Society, “and by moving the start date to mid-September, we’re making it easier for students to compete.”

This year’s one-week Northshore Fun Photo Contest begins Saturday, September 14, 2019. Photographers may register now or in person between 10am and 12 noon on the 14th at Kenmore Camera, 6708 NE 181st St in Kenmore. Subject categories will be announced then and posted online the same day. Registration is free, and the contest is open to all ages and skill levels with no residency requirement.

All photographic entries must be taken September 14-21. Winners will be announced at 2pm, Sunday, October 6 at Kenmore Camera, which is a co-sponsor of the annual event.

Marella Alejandrino, who is organizing the contest this year, stressed that the judging recognizes creative expression. “Prizes will be awarded for the most original, appealing, and creative entry in each of our six mystery categories,” she said.

Cash and merchandise prizes will be awarded in each category with best-of-show honors going to the most creative entry.
