2016 Photo winner

The 2017 Old Home Week Photography Contest will feature a new category this year… photos of the Curran Homestead Village at Fields Pond! Capture a scene from any season, inside or outside, old or new then enter them in the contest and have them on display for everyone to enjoy.

Please submit your favorite photo(s) featuring landscapes, seasons, wildlife, people, activities, sports, structures… anything as long as the subject is either Orrington or the Curran Farm! There will be two age divisions in each category: Adult (for ages 13 and over) and Youth (for ages 12 and under).

Judges will look at composition, color and representation of our community. Entries are limited to 4 per person. Judging will be done on Thursday, July 13, by a panel of dignitaries from our local government, schools and organizations and special judges from the Curran Homestead. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third places in each of the three categories. The winning photos will be proudly displayed at the Public Library during Old Home Week, July 14-23.
