I am happy to announce that my office has begun taking submissions for our second 43rd Assembly District Photography Competition.
Last year, photographers used their talents and skills to explore and tell the stories of the communities that make up the 43rd Assembly District. This year, I am again calling upon photographers to capture the identity of our communities and neighborhoods.
Twenty photographs will be selected to be displayed at a gallery event hosted by me on October 11th in Glendale. At this event I will announce ten winning photographs that will be displayed at my Capitol and District offices for one year.
All ages and levels of proficiency are welcome to participate. Photographs will be judged anonymously by a panel of professional photographers. The works will be scored on the participant’s ability to communicate and capture the story of their community.
You must be a resident of Assembly District 43 to compete. All formats (digital, film) will be accepted. Photo content must be presentable to general audiences; no photos containing violence, profanity, or other explicit subject matter will be accepted.
Submissions will be accepted online or by mail to the District Office.
