Summer Vacation Photos in Augusta

Are you 12 years old or under?  You have your own Kids’ “Best of Augusta” Photo Contest at the start of the school year in September.  Why not use some of your summer vacation for a unique family outing to take pictures of the Town of Augusta. Practice your photo composition, lighting, creativity, and choosing scenes or activities unique to Augusta. 

The May “Best of Augusta” Photo Contest winners will be announced in the July issue.  If you wish to check out the first place and runner up entries earlier, look for them by mid-June on the website:  www.townofaugustamo.org.  The Photo Contest page also has entry forms, prize information, and contest guidelines.

The Town of Augusta is still collecting photos for a 2020 Augusta calendar.  We’re working on a sample copy of the calendar, if you would like to have one of your pictures included.  The Town has a special attractiveness, that in our biased opinion, is worth promoting.  Photos that relate to special events or the seasons of the year are welcome.  (NOTE:  Photos from a cell phone should be taken at a high quality setting and sent at “original” size. Photos from a camera should be at least 300 dpi at 8.5 x 11 size.)    Please email submissions to:  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
