Quarterly Contest Information


Entries for this contest can be any image that depicts small-town life or scenes. 

From the west coast to the east coast, small towns are filled with historic and charming main streets, parks, beaches, and a few architectural gems. 

In considering what images you might want to submit, think about the heart of small towns: yards with picket fences and the American flag, kids playing in the park, the courthouse square, parades, farmers markets, barbecues, high school games, a dairy queen, the local cafes where town folks are drinking sweet tea from mason jars, and on and on.  

A few more ideas can be found at:
