Amateur and professional photographers of all ages are invited to participate in the "Essence of Bellingham" photo competition. This year is the seventh annual opportunity for people to capture and share images of Bellingham life. The competition is sponsored by the City of Bellingham and the Whatcom Museum.
Winners receive special recognition by Bellingham Mayor Kelli Linville and the Bellingham City Council, and have their work on public display, featured on BTV10 and the City’s website, and added to the Museum's photo archives.
"This is a great way for people to share what they love about Bellingham," Linville said. "We hope to see photos of people enjoying our parks, our downtown, our businesses, and all the other wonderful things that make up our community."
Entries may be submitted online, by mail or in person. The deadline for entries is May 1, 2012.
