Wilmette Photo Challenge

October 1 - 30, 2019
Help us grow our photo collection with glimpses into Wilmette life today.

Grab your camera or phone for the Wilmette Photo Challenge! Our newest exhibit, "Wilmette in Photographs,1850-1950," provides a fascinating glimpse of Wilmette in the mid 19th through mid 20th centuries with many of our favorite photos taken by amateur photographers. Submit your photos to help future generations get a glimpse into Wilmette life today.  We will add some of the submitted photos to our permanent collection and also include many of them as a digital display. ​

Participation in "Wilmette Photo Challenge” is easy.  We are looking for color photos (3 – 15 MB in size, jpeg or tiff format) that that you have taken in Wilmette some time over the past year and that capture facets of daily life  - families, informal groups and gatherings, activities and special events, local workplaces, street scenes and more. You can submit up to 5 photos.  If you choose to include people in your photographs (encouraged!), please obtain the necessary releases from the individuals depicted.  Photographers must be 18 years or older.

Check back here on October 1st for more details about uploading your photos to our website.
