The Chester County Planning Commission launched a Landscapes3 photo contest at noon Monday, Aug. 28 to highlight the county’s greatest asset: people. The Planning Commission is seeking photos of people who live, work, visit, or play in Chester County. The photos can focus on people in different settings, including businesses, homes, downtowns, public community events, and outdoors, among others.
The contest, “Putting a Face on Chester County,” ends at noon Friday, Oct. 13. To view the rules and submit a photo, click here.
Anyone who submits a photo early will be entered into a random drawing for two tickets to Natural Lands’ Roots & Bluestems event. The deadline to submit a photo for this early prize is 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 5.
This photo contest would not be possible without the generous support of Natural Lands and our other sponsors: Longwood Gardens, Brandywine River Museum and Millstone Café, Dansko, Trek Bicycles (Exton), The American Helicopter Museum, and the Palace Bowling and Entertainment Center. Prizes from these other partners will be awarded to the selected winners in the adult and youth categories.
