Judges are Brian Sholis, curator of photography for the Cincinnati Art Museum, and Liz Dufour, visual journalist with the Cincinnati Enquirer.

“Having two judges of this caliber who bring such differing perspectives makes this competition a special opportunity for young or budding photographers,” said Nancy Nolan, chair of the arts commission.

Judging is based on technical brilliance, originality or a unique point of view. Photographers may submit up to three photos at Montgomery City Hall  Feb. 29 through March 11, from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Entry fee is $10 per photo for adults, and $5 per photo for students high school age or younger.
