West Chester >> The Chester County Planning Commission is launching a photo contest and is seeking submissions on favorite places to have fun, take a walk or just relax in Chester County.
The contest is part of Chester County’s update process for its comprehensive plan which currently falls under the banner of Landscapes2. The update – Landscapes3 – will help Chester County to remain focused on the smart way to redirect growth in the county, protect open space and revitalize the county’s towns and communities.
The Planning Commission photo contest is open to anyone who lives, works, or plays in Chester County. Prizes for the winning photos will be awarded and the contest runs through Nov. 25. To submit a photo, go to http://www.chescoplanning.org.
In addition to prizes for the top three photos, participants may have their photo featured in the Landscapes3 plan or on the website.
Photo contest prizes were donated by Dansko, Longwood Gardens, and Brandywine Conservancy and Museum of Art. First place - Dansko gift card and prize package (retail value of $225); second place - Longwood Gardens gift card (retail value of $150); and third place - Brandywine River Museum complimentary admission tickets and Millstone Café lunch vouchers for a party of four (retail value $125).
