To the Editor:
Give us your best shot — photos that is! The Friends of the Berne Library are sponsoring the 9th Annual Berne Library Photography Contest. There are four categories for the contest: Generations, Awesome Animals, Natural Beauty, and Architectural Delights.

You may enter one photograph per category. Photos must be 8 by 10 inches on an 11 by 14 inch mat.  The library will provide mats if needed.

There are 2 divisions for entrants: Junior (18 years of age and under) and Adult (over 18 years of age).  There is a $5 entry fee per photo for the Adult division and no fee for entries in the Junior division. 

Photos will be accepted at the Berne Public Library throughout the month of January and will be exhibited through the month of February in the Library Community Room. Photos will be judged by professional photographers and the public is invited to vote for their favorite photo in each division. 

Winners will be announced at a reception, date to be announced, and gift certificates will be awarded to the top winners. Entry forms are available at the circulation desk at the Berne Public Library and online at

Snap to it! Enter your best shots! Visit the Berne Public Library in the month of February to view the exhibit and vote for your Popular Choice winners.

This photo contest is sponsored by the Friends of the Berne Library.
