OSHKOSH (NBC 26) -- The Oshkosh Public Library has announced a photo contest asking people to showcase the meaning of "shelter" during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“One of the library’s roles is to serve as a catalyst for creativity,” said Sandy Toland, Community Engagement Librarian. “F Stop: Shelter is both a visual storytelling opportunity and a way to document history for future generations.”

The contest is free and open to individuals ages 13 and older. Participants are asked to submit up to two photos depicting what shelter means to them. Entries will be judged on composition and how the image reflects shelter.

The Library says top three photos in the two age divisions: 13 to 17 and ages 18 and older will be awarded prizes courtesy of Camera Casino and the library. Photos will be exhibited on the library’s website and social media sites.

Deadline for contest submissions is Friday, October 16. Full details of the competition, including photography classes offered via Zoom, are at oshkoshpubliclibrary.org.
