Local photographers encouraged to enter 69th District Photo Challenge; submissions due Nov. 17

Are you a nature lover, architecture fanatic, or simply enjoy taking pictures everywhere you go around the community? If so, this challenge is for you! Area residents are invited to submit a photo for entry in the annual 69th District Photo Challenge offered each autumn by State Representative Joe Sosnowski, R-Rockford.

“Our photo challenge is a way to celebrate life and nature in our region of the state and recognize the talents of local residents who have a passion for photography,” Representative Sosnowski said. “Each year more and more people submit remarkable snapshots of what makes living and exploring here so exceptional. Grab a cup of your favorite pumpkin-spiced beverage and start taking photos that capture the look and feel of Fall in northern Illinois.”

The subject of each photograph must be within McHenry County, Boone County or Winnebago County. Submission deadline is November 17, 2023. Limit of two entries per person. Three winners will be chosen to have their photograph displayed at Representative Sosnowski’s office at the State Capitol in Springfield in 2024 and receive a $50 Visa gift card. Enter online by clicking HERE.

For questions or more information, please call the district office at 815-547-3436. Representative Sosnowski serves the 69th District which includes portions of McHenry, Boone, and Winnebago Counties.
