Enter JHS photo contest now!

The Jacksonville Historical Society has launched its first annual photo contest, Jacksonville through the Lens. The contest is generously underwritten by  William H. Jeter and Deanne M. Clark and is open to amateur and professional photographers and citizens of Duval County, regardless of age. The grand prize winner will receive $1,000 and will be announced at a photo exhibit and award evening in the fall of 2017. The contest deadline is August 1, 2017.

The contest guidelines are as follows:

Up to four (4) high resolution images celebrating our community (Duval County) life through a place, an event, the city’s people, the city’s history and architecture, the area’s social or cultural life or a combination of these categories, including photos of everyday life. The JHS will accept photos taken between **August 1, 2016 – August 1, 2017**.

JPEG Images must be in a resolution taken between 300 – 600 DPI and/or 1800 x 2400 pixels. You may submit online or by printing out the documents necessary and mailing them to the Jacksonville Historical Society.

You must submit a contest application, a photo description form for each submission and a release form if identifiable persons/models are located in your submissions.

The purpose of this contest is to document Jacksonville in the 21st century. All images will become part of the permanent collection of the JHS Archives.
