NEIGHBORHOOD PHOTO CONTEST – DEADLINE 2/28

The Township of Middletown is currently putting together an updated Welcome Guide for new residents. We would love to have all of our neighborhoods represented with a photo that showcases what makes it special/unique. If you have taken a recent photo that shows off the beauty and personality of your neighborhood, please consider submitting it for our photo contest.

The winning neighborhood photo will be featured with a photo credit in our 2018 Welcome Guide which is expected to be published in March.

How to submit: Please submit your original photo(s) to publicinfo@middletownnj.org or drop them off at the Mayor’s Office at Town Hall (1 Kings Highway) by Wednesday, February 28th by 5:00 PM. Be sure to include your full name, contact info (phone number/email address) and the location of where the photo was taken.

Photo submissions should be 4x6, color, and highlight a community neighborhood activity or favorite landmark/neighborhood spot. Photos should not include people, unless the subjects are aware and you have their permission in writing to use their image. Photos should not have any filters or borders. Entrants should not submit more than two photos.

Digital photos must be a high resolution JPG format. Photos will be judged on which picture best captures the beauty, character, energy, history and/or culture of the neighborhood.

The best submissions may also be featured on our website, Municipal TV channel, social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter & Instagram) or marketing materials with credit to photographers.
