Let’s have some Summer Photo Fun in Morris County!

About the Contest

Playing kickball at dusk in Central Park of Morris CountyEnter Morris County’s latest photo contest – “Summer Fun in Morris County’’ – to show off your talents and see how you fare against your fellow county photographers.

The photo contest encourages citizen involvement and showcases Morris County’s quality of life and spaces and places.

Parks, ballgames, hikes, swimming at the lake – show us your best photos of summer fun! We can’t wait to see what you send us.

Winning entries will be highlighted on the county website and social media platforms, and have a chance to be placed prominently in future in county communications projects and online throughout the year. Everyone is welcome to participate! (Check out previous photo contest winners – Patriotic Morris County and Winter in Morris County.)

This contest is open from July 16 – August 13, 2018. We will post the results on this website, as well as a Facebook gallery. First, second, and third place winners (and honorable mentions!) will be notified. We look forward to seeing your great, fun photos. Good luck!
