Hunterdon Chamber, The Photographer’s Group issue call for submissions

Amateur and professional photographers from all of New Jersey and surrounding areas are invited to participate in the 2020 “Hunterdon Barns, Bridges and Buildings Photo Project,” jointly sponsored by the Hunterdon County Chamber of Commerce and The Photographers Group.
Throughout this summer, project photographers will explore and create original images of the built environment of Hunterdon County from farms to towns, from old to new. The photos will be compiled and the best images published in the Chamber’s magazine, Hunterdon Living.
“The Hunterdon County Chamber of Commerce is excited to participate in this project that will showcase some great sights and destinations that make up the unique and special character of our county. The talent that is abundant here in Hunterdon County through our local photography community is something that we ... want to support and by participating in this project we are able to highlight so many great artists,” said Chris Phelan, president of the Hunterdon County Chamber of Commerce.
The photographer with the most outstanding images will be profiled and have an article written up about her or him in the magazine’s premier online edition. Other outstanding photographers also will receive special recognition in the magazine and have their images featured.
All of the photos that are submitted will be published in an online gallery and become part of the historic archives of Hunterdon County. Depending on how and when the area recovers from the pandemic, a print exhibition may also be mounted.
This is an opportunity for photographers to create photos for a purpose, be recognized and leave a legacy. To participate in this project all photographers need to register at: Photographers.Group/barns-bridges-buildings/. Registration ends July 15.
