Chester County Planning Commission Launches Photo Contest


Contest to focus on county’s greatest asset – its people

The Chester County Planning Commission launched a Landscapes3 photo contest at noon today to highlight the county’s greatest asset: people. The Planning Commission is seeking photos of people as they live, work, visit, or play in Chester County.

The photos can focus on people in different settings, including businesses, homes, downtowns, public community events, and outdoors, among others. The contest, “Putting a Face on Chester County,” ends at noon Friday, Oct. 13. Six winners will be selected from the submitted photos, across adult and youth categories, with prizes illustrating how to get out and about in the county.  

The photo contest is a great way for the public to share how they spend their time in the county, so the Planning Commission better understands what is important in the daily lives of residents as the development of Landscapes3, the county’s next long-range comprehensive plan, continues.

“We’re looking forward to getting more public input into Landscapes3 through the photo contest and seeing great images of the county and its people,” said Chester County Planning Commission Executive Director Brian O’Leary.

This is the second photo contest that the Planning Commission has conducted during the Landscapes3 update process. Last year, the agency asked residents for their favorite place in Chester County and received 375 entries that represented many of the best places in the county.  

Anyone who submits a photo early for this year’s contest will be entered into a random drawing for two tickets to Natural Lands’ Roots & Bluestems event, featuring live music, craft beer, and food truck treats amid the Stroud Preserve’s rolling hills and meadows. Information about the event can be found here. The deadline to submit a photo for this early prize is 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 5.

This photo contest would not be possible without the generous support of Natural Lands and the other sponsors: Longwood Gardens, Brandywine River Museum and Millstone Café, Dansko, Trek Bicycles (Exton), The American Helicopter Museum, and the Palace Bowling and Entertainment Center. Prizes from these other partners will be awarded to the selected winners in the adult and youth categories.
