- Mena Art Gallery, 607 Mena Street, will accept entries for the annual Photography Competition on Wednesday, July 30, from 10 am to 4 pm. To request a special entry time, you must call the gallery at 479-394-3880 before July 30.
This year, there will be adult and youth categories. For the youth category, the photographer must be between 12 and 17 years of age. The adult category is divided into six sub-categories: landscapes with structures, landscapes only, animals, floral, people and portraits, and general. The general category is new and is open to any subject matter that does not fit into the other categories such as still life, abstract, architectural, transportation, or others.
A total of over $2700 in prizes will be awarded at the reception on Saturday, August 3.
This competition attracts excellent work from photographers throughout the state as well as a few from farther afield and is rapidly becoming the largest exhibition of the year at your gallery. So get your shutter clicking, print and frame your best work, and bring it to the gallery.

Entry forms are also available at the gallery during regular gallery hours: 11 am to 2 pm Tuesdays; 10 am to 3 pm Wednesdays through Thursdays.
