2018 Photo Contest sponsored by Merl Humphrey Photography

The Gordon Parks Celebration, scheduled for 5 & 6, 2018, at Fort Scott Community College, will feature a photo contest sponsored by Merl Humphrey Photography and inspired by a quote by Gordon Parks: “Driven by an insatiable hunger, I still search for those things that inspire me–beautiful imagery, music, and literature.”

The theme of the contest, “What Inspires Me” is for any amateur photographer. Photographers are invited to capture the essence of this quote from Mr. Parks.

Non-professional photographers of any age and skill level are invited to take pictures for the project and may enter up to two photos. There will be a first place ($100), second place ($75) and third place ($50) prize and up to five honorable mentions.  All photos submitted will be on exhibit during the 15th Annual Gordon Parks Celebration on Oct. 5th & 6th, 2018.  All photos will also be posted on the Museum Facebook page.

 Photographs must be submitted via e-mail to gordonparksphotocontest@gmail.com. All photos must be JPEG in format and limit file size to less than 2 MB.  All entries will be confirmed via email.  Photographers should submit (in their email) a title, along with their name, address, email, and phone number. If under 10 years old please include parent’s information. Photos should be received via email by Wednesday, September 26, 2018 at the latest.
