Augusta Fall Photo Contest

Fall in love with Augusta! Capture a moment in time of a place or an event in Augusta with a photo. November’s “Best of Augusta” Photo Contest will be taking entries through November 30.

Autumn has a multitude of colors to showcase in a picture. The fall leaves are turning colors a little late this year, but are spectacular. Scenery provides a great photo op and so do various fall activities such as jumping in leaves, squirrels collecting acorns for their winter pantry, toasting a celebration, the bare corn stalks in the field, leftover pumpkins, and even celebrating Thanksgiving. Anything in or near the town limits of Augusta, present or past, is also a welcome entry.

Once you take a photograph and print it off, fill out an entry form under Photo Contest on the website: www.townofaugustamo.org . Follow the directions there to print and mail your photo and entry form to: “Best of Augusta” Photo Contest, PO Box 42, Augusta, MO  63332. The “Best of Augusta” Photo Contest staff is looking forward to viewing your unique entry. Judging will take place shortly after the end of the month. Entries are judged on their creativity, composition, clarity, and uniqueness to Augusta. Other secondary criteria include whether the photo elicits the desire to take a second look and/or how well it tells a story.

Prizes for this one and only contest for the year include a $25.00 gift certificate to Stone Ledge Antiques and wine & chocolate pairings for up to four from Augusta Winery. Prizes offer a great opportunity to return to the Town of Augusta. Take your best shot!
