The 2016 "My New England" Photo Contest
Photo/Art by Bryan Gammons
Honorable Mention, Online, 2014
Title: First Rays of Sun.
Location: Rocky Bound Pond, Croyden, New Hampshire.
Judge’s comments: ” This is an image of the senses. As viewers, the light and the colors of the photograph stimulate us visually. We hear the sounds and smells of early morning. This image tells us a lot about the occupants of the space without a single person in sight.”

“My New England” photo contest can be as individual as a person’s relationship to the region. It may be a stonewall, a meadow of lupines, a seasonal harvest, a visit to a historical house — a visual record that you associate with the New England way of life. New England is landscape and the people who live within the landscape. We want to see photos that capture your personal New England. Only photographs taken in one the 6 New England states (VT, ME, MA, RI, CT and NH) are eligible to win. Photographs should have been taken within the last 2 years. Photographers need not reside in New England to be eligible to win.

Send us your entries by 4:00 P.M. on November 1, 2016, and we will publish the winning photos in the March/April 2017 issue and award cash prizes.

  • Grand Prize: The grand prize winner will receive $500.
