Photographs are now being accepted for the 2022 Morgan County Photo Contest, sponsored by The Morgan Messenger. The deadline for entries is Friday, April 22.

Anyone may submit up to THREE photos of Morgan County scenes and people, landscapes or local events.
Winners in each category will receive a year’s subscription to The Morgan Messenger and other prizes.

The winning pictures will be printed in The Morgan Messenger and published in our online edition. Any entries may be used in the newspaper or other Messenger projects, including a special Outdoor Morgan County publication, throughout the next year.

Categories can change based on photos submitted to the contest. In the past, awards have been given for Best People Photo, Animal Photo, Nature Photo, Scenic Photo, Local Scenes and Structure Photo, as well as a Judge’s Choice for overall local appeal and impact.
