The Museum Center at Five Points is calling on photographers of all ages and skill levels to enter a photography contest titled “Wild River Then & Now.” In collaboration with the museum’s exhibition, “Wild River: Hollywood Comes to Bradley County,” which celebrates the 50th anniversary of the filming of “Wild River,” the museum will hold a photography contest to highlight the river that was featured in the film. The museum is asking photographers to capture the river of today. Photographs can be of any river in the East Tennessee region and can feature wildlife, plant life, landscapes, architectural structures or people interacting with nature.
Photographers can enter photos in professional, amateur or youth divisions. Cash prizes will be awarded in each category. Specific guidelines on theme, photo dimensions and presentation, along with an entry form, can be found online at www.museumcenter.org or applications can be picked up at the museum. Entries must be dropped off at the museum from May 24 to May 29. Winners will be announced June 1. All photos entered into the contest will be exhibited at the museum from June 1 to June 12. Contact Elizabeth Carriger, Curator of Collections at 339-5745 for more information.
