Redmond Library’s Then and Now Photo Contest

If you’ve visited the Redmond Library in the past week, you may have seen the collection of historical photos hanging in the entryway. To celebrate Redmond’s Centennial, the Redmond Library, along with its partners, are sponsoring a Then & Now Photo Contest!

To get started follow these steps:

  1. Choose a historical photo from the display at the Redmond Library or from the Library’s Facebook page.
  2. Take your best ‘Now’ photograph.
  3. Submit your photo in electronic format by email to or in person at the Redmond Library. Photo captions must accompany all submissions, along with your name, email address and telephone number. Captions should include the subject of the image, the location the image was taken, and the name and age of the photographer(s).

Photographers can try to recreate the scene from the historical photograph as accurately as possible or use your creative sense to capture the scene from the historical photograph in a pleasing artful way. Awards will be given in a Youth and Adult Category.

Submit your photos by August 15, 2012. Winners will be announced September 15. See the complete rules online or by inquiring at the Information Desk of the Redmond Library.
