BELOIT – More than 66 images will be exhibited during the month of March at the Beloit Art Center’s 13th annual juried photography contest.

A First Friday Gallery Reception will be held from 5 – 7 p.m. Friday, March 1 the Beloit Art Center, 520 E. Grand Ave. in downtown Beloit with an awards ceremony set for 6 p.m. The exhibit is sponsored by Alongi Santas Moss Insurance Agency.

Amateur photographers from the region submitted images to be reviewed by a group of three jurors. The digital entries are individually reviewed and scored based on composition, creativity, subject matter and technical merit. The three scores are then tallied, determining the images that are accepted into the exhibit. The final in-person juror critique occurs after the images are delivered to the gallery. The results are kept under wraps until the night of the reception, at which time the top 10 awards are presented, with the first-place award winner receiving $150, second place $100 and third place $50.
