Photo contest entries sought by Ascension Parish
Photographers are invited to enter their best pictures of the last year in the River Region Art Association’s annual Click Art Show, “The Best of the River Region: Promoting Tourism in Ascension Parish and the Surrounding Parishes.”
This encompasses many sights all with that special Louisiana flair. The subject matter can be any event, people, place, or thing that best represent all that the surrounding parishes have to offer guests and visitors.
The show for this event will be on display Feb. 3-24 at the Ascension Parish Tourism Commission Office located at 6976 La. 22 in Sorrento.
The goal of the RRAA for this Click Art Show is to work with the Ascension Parish Tourism Commission to promote tourism in the region by finding the best images, that represent all of the best that the River Region has to offer our guests and visitors. RRAA also desires to inspire and promote civic pride and participation in the arts amongst our youth and artists living within our community.
The contest is open to adults 18 and above to compete in two divisions: Black and white photography or color photography. Entry fee is $5 per photo or three for $10. This will be a judged show.
Prizes and ribbons will be awarded in each division: $75 for first; $50 for second; and $25 for third. Honorable mentions will be award. Youth, age 17 and under, will have the opportunity to show their photography talent with one free entry. Any additional entry will be $5 or three for $10. Ribbons will be awarded for first, second, third and honorable mention.
Images must be new photos taken within 2011-12 in or around Ascension Parish and surrounding parishes. Images can be no smaller than 5-by-7 framed and no larger than 16-by-20 framed. Images can be presented framed or on canvas with wire on back for hanging. Photography may be traditional or contemporary.
Entries will be accepted Feb. 2-4 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Ascension Parish Tourism Center.
Awards will be presented at the closing reception Feb. 25 from 1-3 p.m.
A special exhibit for all winners from each category will be held at CC’s Community Coffee on Airline Highway in Prairieville during the entire month of March.
