Nominations are being accepted for the Montgomery County Department of Transportation’s (MCDOT) annual Keep MontgomeryCounty Beautiful (KMCB) Landscaping and Photography competitions.

The 29th Annual Landscape Contest is open to community groups, businesses, public institutions and other organizations undertaking landscaping projects that enhance the appearance of commonly owned sections of commercial or residential properties in Montgomery County. Landscaping along County roadsides, medians, or other public locations is also eligible for the award. Applications are available online and nominations are due by June 22.

For the 24th Annual Amateur PhotographyContest, photos of County locations or residents are judged on effective composition, originality, interest and relevance of the subject matter, and technique. Categories include Montgomery County by day or by night, County landmarks, people, and persons at work. There is also an optional youth category for aspiring photographers age 18 and younger who wish to be judged only against their peers. Applications due by June 30.

MCDOT’s Community Outreach website has photos of last year’s winning entries for both contests and the landscaping and photography contest applications, which explain the guidelines and judging criteria.
