Are you an aspiring photojournalist or a avid shutterbug? Entries are now open for the Heritage Area’s favorite photo contest – IT’S A SNAP! 2020

Winning photographers receive prizes, and the best images will be showcased on Baltimore National Heritage Area‘s social media channels and a special Baltimore National Heritage Area promotional product in 2021.

Photographs must be taken within the Baltimore National Heritage Area. All hi-res entries must be submitted electronically by October 31, 2020.

Why is the contest period so long? We want to give you a chance to capture all the seasons here in Baltimore from Spring to Fall. Your photos can be in color or black and white.

*** Minors (16 and up) are encouraged to participate with parental consent. ***

Please read the complete Rules and Requirements before submitting your photo. All entries must be submitted electronically by October 31, 2020.

For a photo in which a person is recognizable, you must secure a model release form the subject or, in the case of a minor, the subject’s parent or guardian and provide it to BNHA upon request. A model release is available on the heritage area’s website. (Click here for the form.)

What are we looking for?
Baltimore is known as a city of monuments and a city of neighborhoods. Each of our neighborhoods have special icons (such as buildings, statues, and parks) that are celebrated. Show us what makes your neighborhood monumental!

The grand prize winner will receive a $100 gift card. Twelve finalists will receive a $50 gift card
