Phelps County Holds Phenomenal Photography Contest


The Phelps County Visitors Committee has announced a new contest starting up this May.

The Phenomenal Phelps County Photography Contest is open to amateur photographers in Phelps County who feature places in the county in their pictures.

The pictures will be displayed on area websites and on Facebook.

The purpose of the contest is to spread the word about all the great places there are in Phelps County, and promote tourism throughout the county. Contest chair Jane Tones said, "PCVC thinks this is a fun way to sharegreat things about Phelps County with each other and with the world."

Quarterly there will be prizes of $50 awarded to winners in the Youth (ages 13-18) and Adult (ages 19 and up) categories. Participating photographers may enter as many photos as they want into the contest each season: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.

The first judging will be at the end of May, so entries should be submitted as soon as possible. The next judging period will encompass June, July and August.

Photos must be emailed to for publication.
