Murrysville Amateur Outdoor Photo Contest

The Murrysville Amateur Outdoor Photo Contest is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and photography, share your pics, and be part of a friendly competition for the best photos in several categories. 
Amateur photographers may email up to 3 photos taken anywhere outdoors in Murrysville.  It's not necessary to live in Murrysville to enter, and the photos can be from any year (so long as they haven't been entered in a previous year's contest).  The deadline for entries is midnight, December 31.
