As part of their work toward a new vision for Kensington, Town Officials and the Montgomery County Planning Department are co-sponsoring a photo contest asking residents to show what they like best about their community in pictures.
Planners are encouraging residents to submit original, amateur photographs depicting scenes of town life, historic sites, events, neighborhoods and public spaces to demonstrate what’s great about Kensington. Some of those images will be included in the Planning Board draft of the Sector Plan, expected to be completed next fall.
The contest will highlight photographs taken in the Kensington neighborhood between June 15 and September 15. A panel of judges will select winners and award prizes for adult and youth tracks. Cash and gift certificate prizes ranging from $75-$300 have been donated by 13 area businesses. Winning photographs will be displayed at a Town Hall exhibit later this year.
All photos must be taken within the Town of Kensington and environs by Town residents.
