Photo contest aims to get kids perspective of county

The Liberty County Convention and Visitors Bureau is having a photography contest open to kids ages 6-12.

Photographs must be taken in Liberty County. The theme, “#nofilterneeded” is a chance for youth photographers to highlight what they love in the community and how they experience Liberty County, whether it is an event, a scenic view or a favorite destination. Photos without filters are sought to reflect the natural beauty in the community.

Judges will include people skilled in art/photography and elected officials who will consider style and content.

A $100 Wal-Mart gift card will be awarded to the first-place winner. Second- and third-place winners will receive goody bags from the CVB.

“Kids have a great eye and lots of enthusiasm,” program manager Amanda Scott said. “So we’re hoping they’ll be able to capture that through their photos. We live in a location filled with unique historical and scenic treasures, and seeing that through a kid’s perspective is something special.

Details, release forms and registration forms are available by email at tourism@lib or by calling 912-368-3580. Entries must be received by 5 p.m. May 6.

Visit the CVB online at or find it on social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Periscope, as LibertyCVB or on YouTube as Liberty County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
