MCDOT Accepting Nominations for Landscaping and Photography Contests

The following information was sent to us by Karen Falcon:

 

Nominations are being accepted for the Montgomery County Department of Transportation’s (MCDOT) annual Keep Montgomery County Beautiful (KMCB) landscaping and photography competitions. 

The 26th Annual Landscape Contest is open to community groups, businesses, public institutions and other organizations undertaking landscaping projects that enhance the appearance of commonly owned sections of commercial or residential properties in Montgomery County.  Landscaping along County roadsides, medians, or other public locations is also eligible for the award. 

For the 21st Annual Amateur Photography Contest, photos of County locations or residents are judged on effective composition, originality, interest and relevance of the subject matter, and technique.  Subject categories include Montgomery County by day or by night, County landmarks, people and persons at work.  There is also an optional youth category for those 18 and younger who wish to be judged only against their peers.

Applications for both contests are due June 22. 

MCDOT’s Community Outreach website has the landscaping and photography contest applications, which explain the guidelines and judging criteria and photos of last year’s winning entries for both contests.

For more information, contact Community Outreach at 240-777-7155 or mcdot.outreach@montgomerycountymd.gov to request a nomination form either by mail or electronically.
