Submit images to The Stand’s Annual Photo Contest before the deadline is up on July 31st!  This summer's event will be different. We won’t gather in person due to the pandemic, but photographers can still document our city in photos. Open citywide – to continue to capture Syracuse neighborhoods in photos, especially during this unique moment in time. Participants may enter up to two photos in each of our five categories (a maximum of 10 photos per person) and a panel of local judges will pick top winners — plus there will be prizes. Final images will be shared with the community online, featured in The Stand’s September print issue and even exhibited downtown — projected onto the Everson Museum of Art thanks to a partnership with the Urban Video Project (UVP)
Contest Categories Include:
   •  #CuseSummer2020 -- A shot that best captures this new normal — new now — for the city of Syracuse.
   •  #CuseCOVIDchildhood -- A shot showing our city's youth -- from coping with our current crisis to enjoying childhood innocence.
   •  #CuseSocialDistancing -- A shot displaying creative ways the city and its residents continue on safely.
   •  #CuseMinorityImpact -- Studies show this virus impacts Blacks and minorities disproportionately, how can this reality be visualized?
