Photo and poster competitions continue in Holland until September


HOLLAND – Photographers and artists interested in participating in two competitions in Holland should submit their work by Thursday September 30th.

The Holland Area Visitors Bureau, listed on social media as ‘Discover Holland’, announced its summer photo contest for downtown Holland last month.

Photos that capture the people, events, experiences, landscaping and architecture of the downtown core are welcome for submission, with a chance to win cash prizes. Entries must include the photographer’s name and email address.

The office will retain the rights to all entries, including the winning photo and top five submissions, for future editorial and advertising purposes, although credit will be given where applicable.

Photos must be taken downtown and photographers must be 18 years or older to participate. No watermark or logo will be accepted, but photographers may submit more than one entry.
