Albany Diocesan Cemeteries Photography Contest 2020
If we recall correctly, it has been at least six years since we last held our very popular photography contest. It drew photographers of all ages and skill levels to cemeteries managed by Albany Diocesan Cemeteries to take pictures of things they found interesting to them. It is time to bring this contest back. Albany Diocesan Cemeteries are very excited to announce our 2020 Photography Contest is now open to the public!
The contest can be done safely with social distancing – easy to do in any of our cemeteries. Albany Diocesan Cemeteries has 19 cemeteries located in the Capital District to choose from and all of them feature beautiful nature, statuary, architecture and interesting gravestones and many have spectacular views. We will offer generous prize money and there is no entry fee.
The deadline for submission of entries is October 15th, 2020 which gives contest participants three beautiful seasons to visit our cemeteries and take their winning photos.
Grab your camera or camera phone and visit the peaceful beauty of our sacred grounds.
Contest winners will receive: First place, $300; second place $150, Third place $75.
Entrants may submit up to TWO (2) original photographs. The photos must be of a subject located in any one of Albany Diocesan Cemeteries 19 cemeteries: https://www.capitaldistrictcemeteries.org/contact-us/cemeteries-and-directions?explore=5008646
