City of Cottage Grove seeks photo contest entries

From people and places to celebrations and locations, photographers are invited to capture the beauty and spirit of Cottage Grove and submit their best images in the city’s 12th annual photo contest.

Residents can submit their favorite photos for a chance to win a $50 first prize. Submitted photographs must be taken in Cottage Grove. Winners will be selected in six categories: black and white; celebrations or events; historical; parks or trails; people; and streetscapes (buildings, places or things).

The winning photographs will be featured in the city’s newsletter, on the city’s website, as well as other city publications. The deadline for submission is Dec. 27 with winners announced at a City Council meeting in 2014.

A submission form must accompany all photographs and can be found at, search “photo contest,” or by calling 651-458-2883. All submitted photographs become the property of the city of Cottage Grove.
