Description

The 2019 installation of the Wilton Arts Council’s annual FOCUS photography exhibit will be on view daily at the Wilton Library from Saturday, March 2 through Friday, March 29, 2019, during library hours.

The annual FOCUS exhibits, now in their 21st year, have the distinction of being judged by a panel of notable area photographers and they regularly draw participating photographers from over 25 cities and towns in CT and NY.

Photographers may enter their work in one of three divisions: Adult (professional and amateur combined); High School Student (9-12 grade); and Youth (through 8th grade).

To enter photos in FOCUS ‘19, photographers may drop off their work together with entry form and applicable entry fee at the Wilton Library:
on Saturday, February 23, 2019 from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and
on Sunday, February 24, 2018 from 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Please see our "Call for Entries" in FCbuzz "Classifieds" section for details.

Cash prizes and ribbons will be awarded for: Best of Show (which is open to all); first through fifth places in the Adult division; and first, second and third place in each of the High School and Youth divisions. Ribbons will also be presented for honorable mention in each of the divisions.

The FOCUS ‘19 reception and awards presentation is open to the public and will be held on Friday, March 8, 2019, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Wilton Library (awards presentation starts at 6:45 pm).
