The Harrison County Community Foundation (HCCF) is now accepting submissions for their 25th Anniversary Photo Contest. The contest was created to recognize the past 25 years of support HCCF has provided throughout Harrison County.

Participants are encouraged to submit photos reflecting the vast array of projects and programs the Harrison County Community Foundation has sponsored. The categories are:

  • Around the County: Showcasing any building, facility, program, or resource that HCCF had a part in funding.
  • Faces of Harrison County: Featuring those everyday Harrison County citizens who have been impacted by the Foundation.
  • HC Conservation: Highlighting Harrison County’s parks, trails, and conservation areas that HCCF has helped support.

In total, five winners will be selected: one from each category and two overall, with one from each age group, 17 and under and 18+. Winners will be invited to attend a special ceremony at the Harrison County Community Foundation, where they will be recognized and receive certificates and prizes. Contest winners will also have their photographs featured in HCCF ads in local publications.

Contestants can submit up to five photos in digital format accommodated by a submission form for each image. Photos will be evaluated based on creativity, composition, and category representation through an anonymous process. Entries must be submitted online by 4:00 p.m. (ET) on September 8, 2021.
