The deadline to enter the Northwestern Regional Library 10th-annual traveling photography contest is approaching — branch libraries will be accepting entries through March 4.
The unveiling of the photographs will take place on April 12 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 digital camera. Categories include color, black and white, digitally altered and abstract. The contest is open to youths ages 5-17 and adults.
A workshop will be held at 5:30 p.m. before the April 12 reception. Stewart Royall of Studio Roxie in Sparta will be talking about taking pictures of sports, weddings and landscapes. He will also answer general questions about photography.
The reception will start at 6:45 p.m. 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.
