2014 Photo Reception
The New Brunswick Free Public Library presents its seventh annual Photography Contest and Exhibit! The contest theme this year is "New Brunswick: Our Town". Simply put, entries were to capture an aspect of New Brunswick (i.e. daily life, businesses, city history, buildings, pets, parks, etc.) If the picture was not taken in New Brunswick, information about the subject's connection to New Brunswick was to be provided. Submitted photos were also eligible for recognition if they represent the "NJ350" theme of New Brunswick history. Submitted photos must have been taken between January 2 and March 22, 2014.

Photographs entered in the contest are currently displayed in a group exhibition at the George Street Playhouse, Heldrich Hotel, and the New Brunswick Free Public Library. A panel of professional photographers and library staff judged the submissions for first, second, and third place. Winners were announced at the Photography Contest Exhibition Reception on Thursday, April 24. Photos will be on display at the George Street Playhouse and at the Heldrich Hotel from April 24 - May 24, and at the Library from April 24 to May 30, 2014. (Please call the library at 732-745-5108 ext. 20 if you would like to view the display.)
