The Marianna Black Library in Bryson City is hosting its Third Annual “Life in Swain” amateur photography contest. The past two years have been a huge success with more than 50 photographers submitting more than 100 photos.
All photographs must be taken in Swain County. They may be of buildings, landscapes, nature shots, locally known locations, but the winning photos will highlight what makes Swain County unique. The contest is open to all ages and will be divided into two groups: adults 16 years and older and the junior division consists of 15 and under.
Rules for the contest and entry forms are available at the library. Entries may be turned in before Oct. 15. Entry fee is $10 for the first photograph and $5 for each additional one.
