Annual Brooklyn Public Library Photo Contest

The Brooklyn Public Library is holding its Sixth Annual Photo and Essay Contest. About Brooklyn notes the contest, which is open to photographers of all ages. The contest is detailed at the the Library's website:
The 2007 My Brooklyn Photo + Essay Contest is about what makes this borough unique to you. From the faces and places to the events, food and attitude, show and tell us about your Brooklyn and you could win a $500, $ 300 or $ 100 U.S. Savings Bond and have your work exhibited at Brooklyn Public Library. From DeGraw Street to DiFara's, from Carroll Gardens to the Cyclone, from Greenpoint to Greenwood, Brooklyn is everywhere – show us where it takes you.

My Brooklyn, a photo and essay contest sponsored by Brooklyn Public Library (BPL) and Con Edison, encourages everyone everywhere to share what Brooklyn means to you through pictures and words. You don't have to live here to have a thought, feeling, memory or favorite person, place or thing in the borough to enter. In fact, anyone may enter, except BPL and Con Edison employees and their families.
Entries will be judged in three categories:

* Child - 12 and under
* Young Adult - 13 through 19
* Adult - 20 and older
We could advise that photographers avoid hagiographic images, but will say, instead, that you can see last year's winners here and 2005's winners here. They include some really, really good photos like this one.
