The Mountain Arts Photographic Society (MAPS), The Mountain Arts Network (MAN), in Lake Arrowhead are co-sponsoring the Third Annual Mountain-wide Photographic Competition.
You are invited to submit your local images on the theme of “The Faces of the Mountain” captured in our San Bernardino Mountains. Your images should include subjects that tell the story of the faces that make our mountain communities unique. It will be up to you to decide what "The Faces of the Mountain" means for you.
Entry forms must be submitted by Sept. 1, 2017 and image submission can be no later than Sept. 30, 2017. Images will be judged by a panel of local photographers and artists. Winners will be selected based on adherence to the contest theme, image content, artistic interest, and photographic skill. The decision of the panel of judges is final.
