Stateline area photographers encouraged to enter 69th District Photo Challenge

Are you a nature lover, architecture fanatic, or simply enjoy taking pictures everywhere you go around the Stateline? If so, this challenge is for you! Stateline 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!

Our annual photo challenge is a way to celebrate life and nature around the Stateline and recognize the talents of local residents who have a passion for photography. Each year more and more people submit remarkable snapshots of what makes living and exploring here so exceptional. Representative Sosnowski enjoys sharing these photos with the community and with visitors to Springfield. So take out your camera and start capturing snapshots of what makes life special here in northern Illinois!

Photo Challenge Rules

The subject of each photograph must be within Boone County or Winnebago County.

ENTRY DEADLINE IS NOVEMBER 19, 2021.

Three winners will be chosen to have their photographs displayed at Representative Sosnowski’s office at the State Capitol in Springfield in 2022 and receive a $50 gift card to their favorite restaurant here in the district, encouraging support for the local restaurant industry hit hard by COVID-19 mitigation measures. For questions or more information, please call our Rockford office at (815) 547-3436.

Here are the 2020 Photo Challenge winners! Dan Van Den Broeke of Roscoe (butterfly/flower); David Olson of Rockford (red fox); and Jamie Proctor of Belvidere (Belvidere Park).
