Casano Center Holds Photo Contest

The Casano Community Center Art Gallery is having a photography contest around the theme “Roselle Park in Winter – Share the Magic”. Entrants will be eligible to exhibit their submissions at a gallery show in February.

Photographs must have been taken in the borough by Roselle Park residents and can be of holiday decorations, children playing in the snow, or anything winter-related. Even though pictures reflecting the 2010-2011 winter season are preferable, the contest is open to photos taken in other years. The deadline for submissions is February 7, 2011.

Participants can submit up to four (4) entries. Digital photographs as well as processed prints are permitted. The minimum requirements for digital entries are that they must be in JPEG format at 72 dpi. Arrangements can also be made to meet with Leona Seufert at the Art Gallery to show your prints.

You do not have to be a professional photographer or artist to enter. There will be two awards given: “Best of Show” and “Viewer’s Choice”.

The Art Gallery is located in the Casano Community Center, 314 Chestnut St. Roselle Park, New Jersey. Hours are Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Fridays the Center is open until 5 p.m. Anyone interested in finding out more information can contact Leona Seufert at (908) 241-5874.
