Applications are now being accepted for the Montgomery County Department of Transportation’s (MCDOT) annual Keep Montgomery County Beautiful landscaping and photography competitions.
The landscaping 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. Landscaping along County roadsides, medians, or other public locations is also eligible for the award.
For the 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. Photo categories include Montgomery County by day or by night, county landmarks, people, and persons at work. There is also an optional youth category for those under 18 who wish to be judged only against their peers.
Applications for both contests are due June 18.
MCDOT’s Community Outreach website has photos of last year’s winning entries for both contests and the landscaping and photography contest applications that explain the guidelines and judging criteria.
For more information, call Community Outreach at 240-777-7155 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to request an application either by mail or electronically.
