Although the photos must be taken in Greece, any resident of Monroe County age 13 and up may enter the contest. There will be a Grand Prize awarded by our judges in each of two age groups: Youth (13-17) and Adults (18+) and Supervisor Reilich will also choose a "Supervisor's Favorite" in each of these age groups. Adult and Youth (13-adult) will compete together for an award in each of the following categories: Greece is a Winter Wonderland, Greece Community Happenings, Autumn Beauty of Greece, On the Water in Greece, Springtime in Greece, and Unique Architecture of Greece.
Judges will be Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich, photographer Jamie Montanus, photographer Robert Bilsky and photographer Dick Bennett. During the week of September 9-15, 2018 the public will have an opportunity to vote online for a "People's Choice" award. Photo submissions must be in landscape format and will be accepted 8/1/2018 through 8/31/2018.
Online voting will take place the week of 9/9/18. All winning images will appear in the annual Glimpses of Greece Calendar.
