More than 100 images will be exhibited during the month of March for the annual juried photo contest at the Beloit Art Center.
Photographers from the regional area will show their work beginning Friday, March 1 at the center, 520 E. Grand Ave., Beloit. An opening reception will be held from 5-8 p.m. with the winners announced at 6 p.m.
First place is $150, second place is $100 and third place is $50.
“The annual juried photography show is an opportunity for photographers to showcase their art and ability,” said Jerry Sveum, Beloit Art Center Board of Directors President.
For the community, “They get to see an enjoyable show,” Sveum said.
While most of the entries are from the Southern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois area, the contest popularity is growing. The farthest away entry this year was from Minneapolis.
The photos are examined by three judges. They go through each image and assign points. There are three separate points of view and the entries with the highest number of points win.
The show will be exhibited through the month of March. The Beloit Art Center is open to the public Monday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and Tuesday through Friday 10a.m. - 5:00p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
