Focus is on the architecture, landscapes and uniqueness of the Dunsmuir community. Black & white or color photos can be micro- to macro-scale and must capture an essence of Dunsmuir, whether it be buildings, walls, railings, signs, steps, pathways, drains, gutters, streams, streets, automobiles, junk, etc. Some form of architecture and/or hardscape is required. People, plants and other objects are also encouraged but not required. Most importantly, the curators seek photos that capture the “Essence of Dunsmuir”.

All digital or film photos must be taken of public spaces, whether it be indoors or outside. Day and/or night time photography is encouraged.
