“The Connecticut Photo Contest,” sponsored by Connecticut Historical Society, is accepting submissions for an upcoming exhibit.
Amateur and professional photographers are welcome to submit in three categories, Connecticut People, Connecticut Architecture and Connecticut Landscape.
Entries must be received by Saturday, Sept. 21. The exhibit will be on the walls at CHS, at 1 Elizabeth St. in Hartford, from Thursday, Oct. 10, when it will open with a reception, until Saturday, March 29, 2014
The exhibit will be in conjunction with another exhibit, “Through a Different Lens: Three Connecticut Women Photographers.” That show will focus on Harriet V. S. Thorne (1843-1926) of Bridgeport, Marie Hartig Kendall (1854-1943), who lived in the Litchfield Hills, and Rosalie Thorne McKenna (1916-2003) of Stonington. This image of Helen Keller by McKenna will be in that show.
