Grab your cameras and start snapping photos! The annual “Focus on Woodbury” photo contest is back! To help commemorate the city’s 50th anniversary, a new “Historical” category has been added for this year’s contest.
The competition, sponsored by Woodbury Magazine, drew 271 entries last year. It is open to all residents and employees of Woodbury businesses to submit their favorite photos.
Contest entries must be submitted online between Aug. 1 and Aug. 31.
Images can be placed into one of five categories:
- People - people living, working and enjoying themselves in the community
- Events - community gatherings, sporting events, etc.
- Landmarks - businesses, buildings and cityscapes
- Nature - plants, parks, animals in nature, natural landscapes
- Pets - domestic animals
- Historical - historical photos of life in Woodbury prior to 1967, the year the community became a city
Photos in these categories may include events in Woodbury, Woodbury architecture and buildings, natural scenes in Woodbury, and close-ups of Woodbury people and their domestic pets. The nature category includes photos of wildlife and/or nature scenes in Woodbury. The historical category includes photos taken in Woodbury prior to 1967, the year the community became a city.
