I just found out about a really cool contest sponsored by the Brooklyn Public Library: Enter the My Brooklyn Photo + Essay Contest and you could win $500, plus have your winning work exhibited at Brooklyn Public Library!
My Brooklyn is about what makes this borough unique to you. From the faces and places to the events, food and attitude, show and tell us about your Brooklyn and you could win a $500, $300 or $100 US Savings Bond. From DeGraw Street to DiFara's, from Clinton Hill to the Cyclone, from Greenpoint to Greenwood, Brooklyn is everywhere – show and tell us where it takes you.
You don't have to live here to have a thought, feeling, memory or favorite person, place or thing in the borough to enter. In fact, anyone may enter, except BPL employees and their families.
Visit our website to learn more.
I encourage you to give the Hill a shout-out! Entry deadline is March 30!
