Cape Ann Museum Photo Contest

Inspired by Home Online Photo Contest

In conjunction with this summer’s exhibition, Design/Build: The Drawings of Phillips & Holloran, Architects, the Museum is hosting an online photography contest. Photographers are invited to submit images based on the theme of “home” that capture the unique character of Cape Ann (photos must be taken in Rockport, Gloucester, Essex or Manchester-by-the-Sea).

What does home mean to you? The photo below, taken by Philip Reisman in Gloucester in 1951, is one idea of home in a particular place and time. With this online photo contest, we want to see what speaks of home to you.

Deadline for submission: April 29, 2016

To submit your work, go to:
