Ask a Question, Take a Photo for “Best of Augusta” Photo Contest

What are you doing? Where are you going? What types of ideas float through your mind? What do you envision? What captures your attention? Each of these questions provides a general focal point for an awesome picture.  A winning photograph could be the answer to one of these questions.

The “Best of Augusta” Photo Contest solicits photo entries taken in the Town of Augusta. As one walks, or drives, through this picturesque town, photo opportunities abound. How does one capture the joy of a child coming down the playground slide? What inspires bicyclists to ride the Katy Trail? How are soldiers honored on Memorial Day at the Augusta cemetery?  Why are customers drawn to outdoor venues of “wine, women, and song”? What makes a flower beautiful? How do artists choose what they paint?

May 31 is the deadline for this first photo contest in 2021. Choose your best photograph. Make a 4 x 6 print. Fill out the entry form found at www.townofaugustamo.org. Mail the completed entry form and one 4 x 6 photograph to: “Best of Augusta” Photo Contest, PO Box 42, Augusta, MO 63332.

Prizes are donated by local businesses. Augusta Winery’s certificate is for wine and chocolate pairings.  Jordan Essentials, a healthcare consultant business, is offering discount coupons for their products.  

What is your question? What is the picture “worth a thousand words” that answers your question? Take a chance and submit your entry and photograph.
