Tulare County Digital Photography Contest Underway

Tulare County Digital Photography Contest Underway

Tulare County’s Information & Communications Technology Department (TCiCT) is hosting its Second Annual Digital Photography Contest.

The purpose of the contest is to ask the public to help showcase the beauty of Tulare County in a variety of ways.  Photographers of all ages and skill levels are eligible to participate.  There are four different classes of photography: City, Agriculture, Mountains, and new this year, Instagram.  The photos must be images of Tulare County.  Contestants may submit up to five (5) photos total.  The purpose of the contest is to involve any and all citizens of Tulare County and any interested parties in capturing images that best depict the County of Tulare.

A panel comprised of community members and County staff will select images that best depict the County of Tulare in four categories and award 1st place (best overall), 2nd place, and 3rd place.  Judging is based on creativity, photo quality, representation of Tulare County and relevancy to its category. First Place photos in each category will be featured on the County website and County social media and the Board of Supervisors will honor all winners at a County Board meeting.  All photos may be featured electronically on County websites and social media channels with name and photo credit.
