Our annual People, Places & Things Photo Contest aims to recognize the best in amateur photography that celebrates the place we call home. The contest is open to photos taken in Northeast Wisconsin by non-professional photographers residing in the area.

Entries are accepted in three categories:

  • PEOPLE: Life in the Fox Cities & northeast Wisconsin
  • PLACES: Images of the regional landscape, from skylines to sunsets
  • THINGS: Distinctive features of the region seen in a unique way

We publish the winners in our August issue. What does this mean to you? Entries must be received no later than June 12, 2018. One entry per category per person, please.

It’s easy to submit photos – we accept submissions via hand delivery, snail mail or email!

For delivery or snail mail, please complete one entry form per photo. Entry forms may be downloaded here.

Email submissions may be sent to Amelia Compton Wolff at [email protected] in JPEG format. When emailing submissions, it’s not necessary to fill out an entry form, but make sure to include your name, address, phone number and an image title in the body of the email. Please include the category of the photo in the subject line.

Winning photographers will be awarded prizes and a chance to appear on the cover of our August issue.
