Nominations Due by June 22 for Annual Landscaping and Photography Contests

Nominations are being accepted for the Department of Transportation’s (MCDOT) annual Keep Montgomery County Beautiful (KMCB) landscaping and photography competitions. Applications for both contests are due by June 22.

The 27th Annual Landscape Contest is open to community groups, businesses, public institutions and other organizations undertaking landscaping projects that enhance the appearance of commonly owned commercial or residential properties in Montgomery County. Landscaping along County roadsides, medians or other public locations is also eligible for the award.

The subject categories for the 22nd Annual Amateur Photography Contest are Montgomery County by day or by night and County landmarks, people and those at work. Photos are judged on effective composition, originality, interest, relevance of the subject matter and technique. There is also a special youth category for aspiring photographers, ages 18 and younger, who wish to be judged only against their peers.

Download the landscaping and photography contest applications and get more information about the guidelines and judging criteria at MCDOT’s Community Outreach website. Photos of last year’s winning entries for both contests are also available on the website.
