Manalapan Township 2015 Photo Contest

MANALAPAN, NJ – The Manalapan Arts Council and Mayor Jack McNaboe are pleased to announce the holding of its 7th annual photo contest.  The 2015 theme is "Let's Move It, Move It!"  Photos should capture an image that symbolizes a way to move from one place to another.    This could be a vehicle, a train, a plane, skates, etc. etc.   Judges will be looking at the artistic element in how the photo is taken and how the image of movement is conveyed.  Each year’s contest has been very successful as almost 300 photos have been submitted in the past 6 years. 

Barbara Miller, Contest Co-Chair, explains the theme.  “There are so many ways in which we move.  Consider  private or public transportation, old ways and new ways.  We move over land, through air, over and under sea and into space.  We have and still use animals to transport us.  People move with skates or bikes or roller blades.  The list goes on forever!”  Barbara went on to explain the artistic element they are looking for.  “The judges will be looking at the photos and really trying to find the photograph that best captures a means of moving in an unique setting or manner”.  “We encourage all Manalapan residents to consider submitting a photo and a short caption that describes the form of movement."

"First of all I want to thank the Manalapan Arts Council for sponsoring our Photo Contest, especially the co-chairs Barbara Miller, Carolee Trifon , and Helen Newhook.  Looking at the photos on display in the courtroom I am always so impressed with artistic talents of the residents of our town, and how they have captured the  essence of each theme in their photos." said Mayor Jack McNaboe.  This year I would like to challenge the participants to follow the words of President Ronald Reagan when he said....'America is too great for small dreams.'  I know firsthand of the imagination and creativity in this community-so dream big-and I expect that there will again be outstanding photos to view at the end of the day."

The contest is open to all Manalapan residents.  Township residents can only enter one photo.  Photographs must include a brief description (25 words or less) of the photo.   Awards will be given as follows:
