Middlesex County photography contest returns for the Spring; it runs from March 8 through May 17, 2022

Middlesex County’s photography contest, Picture Middlesex County, is back by popular demand this Spring. The contest runs from March 8 – May 17, 2022, and is open to all New Jersey residents. 

“Once again the Picture Middlesex County photography contest is giving individuals the chance to shine by submitting photos that showcase life in Middlesex County,” said Director of the Board of County Commissioners Ronald G. Rios. “From photos of landscapes to close-ups of plants, insects, birds and other wildlife, there are many remarkable photograph opportunities in Middlesex County, and we look forward to seeing what residents submit this Spring. Not only is Spring a great time to get outdoors and explore what our beautiful County has to offer, but it’s the ideal backdrop to showcase Middlesex County’s diverse communities as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The photo contest is open to all amateur and professional photographers, youth to adult.  Ages 17 and under require parent/guardian consent on the entry form. Photos must be taken within Middlesex County, New Jersey, and must be taken within the timeframe of the contest. Individuals may submit up to two photos per category.

Contest Categories

  • Arts and History: Historic sites, landmarks, public art, festivals, etc.

A judging committee will anonymously judge all the photos to determine the contest’s overall winner. Winning photos may be publicly displayed at a future County event.
