The contest was open to both adult and junior (under age 18) amateur photographers. The photographs must have been taken after September 1, 2019 and be the first time entered in this contest. Each photographer was allowed to enter as many photographs as they wished (based on available exhibition space).

The photographs will be on exhibit from September 22, 2020 through October 30, 2020. The Photography Exhibit in Frehner Gallery will be open by appointment only.
