2019 Photo Contest


Grab your cameras! Temple City is holding its first annual photo contest, and you’re invited to share your love for the community by taking your best shot at capturing its spirit.

Photos can be representative of Temple City’s history, community life, open space, recreation, arts, culture and more—in other words, anything that embodies the experience of living in Temple City.

Each contestant may enter up to five photos. The submission deadline is July 31, 2019.

What’s sure to make a photo a winner? Technical quality, clarity and composition are all important, but so are a flair for the unexpected and the ability to capture a picture-perfect moment. Contest entries will be judged on overall quality, creativity and how well the photo portrays the Temple City community.

Winners in each of three age categories—6-12, 13-17 and 18 and over—will be revealed in the winter issue of CONNECT. Winners will receive City Council recognition and Visa gift cards: $100 for first place, $50 for second place and $25 for third place.

Winning photos will also be exhibited at City facilities, in various marketing and promotional materials, and on the City’s website and social media accounts.

Entering is easy and free; start by reviewing the contest rules, then submit your entry form!
