Langley gallery to hold Northwest photo contest

The Poppybank Gallery, a gallery specializing exclusively in photographic art, is hosting a photography contest with the theme of “The Pacific Northwest.”

Photographers are encouraged to submit their photos via the gallery’s Facebook page, where the contest link can be found. A direct link to the entry form is

“We’ve had lots of enthusiastic photographers enter our gallery looking to ‘talk shop,’” says gallery manager Leslie Evans. “We thought this could be a fun way to reach out to both the local and greater community and let them show us their talent.”

Contest entrants must be 18 years of age or older. The deadline for submissions is Thursday July 31.  Evans and her co-owner/husband, photographer Christopher Evans, will narrow the submissions to a set of semi-finalists with the grand-prize winner to be chosen by public vote on Facebook or at the gallery.

The winning photo will be professionally printed and framed, then displayed at The Poppybank Gallery during late August.

Business hours for The Poppybank Gallery are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
