Mercer County residents are invited to submit their digital images to help the county create a collection of recent photographs that illustrate living, working and playing within its 12 municipalities.
The county is looking for images that illustrate area heritage, economic vibrancy and cultural diversity. This includes pictures of public buildings, historic sites, parks and events with or without people using those places.
“This is a way for talented amateur photographers to help us spotlight the many great things that Mercer County and its vibrant communities have to offer,” Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes said. “If you enjoy taking photos, we invite you to show us Mercer County through your lens.”
This is not a contest. The county calls it an opportunity for amateur photographers who seek a broader audience for their work. The images could be used in editorial and commercial digital and print media promoting the county. The photographer’s credit line would appear in the media in which they appear, whenever possible. The county would have exclusive rights of the images and will not sell them.
Participants must complete an agreement before submitting images. Instructions and requirements can be found online at http://ciephoto.com/PhotogDirex.pdf.
