Collierville-focused photography contest now accepting entries

The 2022 Expo is open to adults and teens 15 and older who reside in Collierville or within a 30-mile radius. The deadline to participate is June 25.

COLLIERVILLE, Tenn. – Those in Collierville are now encouraged to send in their “vision” of what it means to live in Collierville for the chance to have their work displayed in a new photography exhibit. “Picture Collierville” is sponsored by the Lucius E. & Elsie C. Burch, Jr. Library and the Morton Museum.

All skill levels are invited to submit in different categories: ‘On the Town’, ‘Pictures Collierville History’, ‘Collierville Community’ and ‘The Beauty of Collierville’.

The 2022 Expo is open to adults and teens 15 and older who reside in Collierville or within a 30-mile radius. The deadline to participate is June 25.

In addition, the photographs presented in the exhibition have a chance to be part of “the contemporary history of Collierville”. Images and captions from the final exhibit will be preserved by the library and museum for future generations of residents to “see the Collierville of 2022 through the eyes and words of area residents.”

A selection of photographs will be chosen for display either at the Lucius E. & Elsie C. Burch, Jr. Library or the Morton Museum during the months of August and September, through September 24. A reception will be held at the Morton Museum on August 11, 2022, from 5 to 7 p.m.

Winners in each category will receive a “Commemorative Print Book of Photographs”. Copies of the book will also be available at checkout in the library and to the public at the Morton Museum.

To complete the Picturing Collierville program, two training sessions for beginner photographers will take place in June. The first is called “Take better photos with your iPhone” and will take place on June 10 from 10 a.m. to noon. The second is called “Take better pictures with your DSLR camera” and will take place on June 10 from 1 to 3 p.m.

Organizers said space is limited for these sessions and registration begins May 27.
