Budding Photographers Photo Contest

March 30 - May 20

A photography contest for all ages!

In honor of National Photography Month, we are pleased to extend Budding Photographers Contest through May 20th. We hope you will participate in this fun-filled contest our while enjoying Hill-Stead’s glorious grounds this spring.

Collective creativity is born from moments like this. The arts have the power to heal. And, making art is good for your health! Now more than ever, art is an important vehicle for staying healthy and connected with the greater community.

Photography is a medium that influences, inspires, and ignites change. Though photography is a much younger medium than painting, the astonishing technological advances coupled with the astounding reach of social media means there are now far more pictures taken every day than there are canvases in all the world’s museums and galleries. When photography was first developed, the people behind the camera captured the world as they saw it. Today, during this time of uncertainty and social distancing, art can keep us together.

Participate in this fun-filled photo contest and, at the same time, let us continue to be there for you. We are in this together, and we can get through it with your help.
