SOUTH BAY CITIES COUNCIL OF GOVERNMENTS PHOTO CONTEST CALLS FOR PHOTOS OF SOUTH BAY LANDMARKS
Deadline to Enter Second Annual Contest is February 10, 2023
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TORRANCE, CALIF., February 1, 2023 – The South Bay Cities Council of Governments (SBCCOG) is searching for the community’s best photographs of South Bay landmarks for its second annual “Why I Love the South Bay” photo contest.
Last year the SBCCOG received more than 150 entries to its first annual contest. While it received dozens of stunning coastal images, this year it’s aiming to broaden the subject matter to include other features of the South Bay. The contest is specifically calling for creative and artistic shots of South Bay landmarks. Such points of interest can include—but are not limited to—a statue, bridge, historical building or a water tower.
“While there is no debating the beauty of our coastline as a subject in photography, we want to ensure that our other South Bay cities that don’t have a coastline have a fair representation in our contest this year,” said Jacki Bacharach, executive director of the SBCCOG. “While a coastal shot that also features a landmark in it is highly welcome and eligible to win, we hope to generate a more diverse range of imagery this year to select from.”
The contest kicked off January 1, 2023. Entries must be received by 5 p.m., February 10, 2023. Ten finalists will be selected by the SBCCOG staff and board of directors. The winner will be selected by a vote of attendees at the 23rd annual General Assembly. The winning image will be announced and displayed at the event on March 23, 2023.
All photos should reflect places in the following locations of the South Bay:
- City of Carson
- City of El Segundo
- City of Gardena
- City of Hawthorne
- City of Hermosa Beach
- City of Inglewood
- City of Lawndale
