Submitted by Cantigny Park
Amateur photographers of all ages are invited to enter their best images in the Cantigny in Focus annual photo contest. The submission deadline is Friday, November 9.
Submitted images (maximum 10) must be from the grounds of Cantigny Park or Cantigny Golf in Wheaton, the 500-acre former estate of Robert R. McCormick. Cantigny-appointed judges will select 40 winning images for public display in the park’s Visitors Center Gallery.
Judges will be looking for photographs that best represent the scope of Cantigny, including golf, museums, special events, gardens, adult and children’s programs, concerts, military events and wildlife. Pictures can be from 2012 or earlier.
The 40 entries chosen for display will be enlarged, professionally framed at Cantigny’s expense and returned to the photographers at the end of 2013. Top 40 finishers also will receive a free annual membership to Cantigny Park.
The winning entries will go on display starting February 1, 2013. Park visitors may then vote for their favorite images until December 11, 2013. Owners of the top three favorites will receive a prize.
Cantigny Park, located at 1s151 Winfield Road in Wheaton, is open from 7 am to sunset every day through October. Hours are 9 am to sunset in November and December.
