 MCDOT accepting till June 20 nominations for Landscaping and Photography Competitions


Nominations are being accepted for the Montgomery County Department of Transportation’s (MCDOT) annual Keep Montgomery County Beautiful (KMCB) Landscaping and Photography competitions. The 28th Annual Landscape Contest is open to community groups, businesses, public institutions and other organizations undertaking landscaping projects that enhance the appearance of commonly owned sections of commercial or residential properties in Montgomery County. Landscaping along County roadsides, medians, or other public locations is also eligible for the award.

For the 23rd Annual Amateur Photography Contest, photos of county locations or residents are judged on effective composition, originality, interest and relevance of the subject matter, and technique. Subject categories include Montgomery County by day or by night, county landmarks, people, and persons at work. There is also an optional Youth category for aspiring photographers age 18 and younger who wish to be judged only against their peers.

Applications for both contests are due June 20, 2014.

MCDOT’s Community Outreach website has photos of last year’s winning entries for both contests and the landscaping and photography contest applications, which explain the guidelines and judging criteria. For more information, call Community Outreach at 240-777-7155 or email us to request a nomination form either by mail or electronically, or visit our website.
