Apopka: Picture Yourself Here

Photography Contest

Amateur and professional photographers are invited to enter your best images in the Apopka: Picture Yourself Here Photography Contest. This contest allows the chance to see the town through your unique lens. Submissions will be open on June 3rd, 2023 and close on June 1st, 2024.

Categories for entry

Flora and Fauna
Photos should reflect the natural beauty of Apopka – its environment and wildlife.

Photos should reflect what you do or see every day – photo examples include special events or community celebrations, sports, parades, people taking a walk and having fun, positive aging, children playing, street scenes, city crews at work, etc.

Photo examples include Apopka’s neighborhoods, parks, trails & green spaces, businesses, and other unique places.

All winning photos will be included in a special publication to be printed and presented for purchase soon after announcing winners. In addition, all winning photos will be displayed on the Creative Hub of Apopka website. The category-winning photos will also be publicized and featured at local Apopka businesses for public viewing and purchase. All submissions used on social media will be credited to photographers with permission to use in future media with attribution.

So, what makes a photograph winner? Technical quality, clarity and composition are all important, but so is a flair for the unexpected and the ability to capture a picture-perfect moment. Open to any individual, age 13 or older.  If you are under the age of 18, your submissions must be submitted by a legal parent or guardian. Please submit photos in jpeg format no more than 5mb each, with photo title(s). If your photo is chosen for publication, you will be required at that time to send in a high resolution (300 DPI) for print.

Winners will be announced by the end of June 2024. Contest entries will be judged on overall quality, creativity and how well the photograph portrays Apopka.
