The Maryland Photography Alliance (MPA) is proud to announce the “5th Annual MPA Photography Contest”.  The search is on to find the best images created by MPA photographers from 24 MPA clubs throughout the State of Maryland.

The deadline for submissions is October 3, and MPA is announcing the contest early because they listened to previous participants who wanted to know the submission details and categories well in advance, to have more time to submit their best images.

The contest will be juried, there will be prizes, and the best images will be placed on display to give photographers the recognition they deserve.

Lots of Prizes and No Cost to Participate!
