Snap a photo, then upload it using the SUBMIT tab on this page. WCNY’s professional media team will select the top 20 photographed Scenes of the Region for each season of the year (summer, autumn, winter, spring). Then YOU get to vote for the winning photos!

Technical Specifications to Keep in Mind

Only one submission per contestant will be permitted. Photos should be 2–4 MB, uploaded as .jpg or .tiff format.

Photos should highlight Scenes of the Region, as interpreted by the photographer. The seasonal theme should be discernible in photos submitted to the contest, but it is not necessary to have a recently taken photo to win.

Submissions for the Autumn Edition will start Monday, Sept. 24 – Nov. 9!
