KENNEBUNK — Kennebunk Savings Bank is accepting submissions, beginning this week, for the Brick Store Museum’s Fifth Annual Photography Contest.

Photos will be be displayed by the museum, located at 117 Main St., Kennebunk, on their website until the close of the contest on Sept. 4. Photographs can be entered in one of three traditional categories: “Kennebunk,” “Travel,” or “Nature,” or a special anniversary category celebrating the art of the smartphone photo, reflecting how these images have truly changed how we capture culture.

Participants under 16 are invited to submit their entries to a separate Children’s Category. Winners will be selected from each category. Each participant may submit a maximum of three entries. Three talented artists from the Southern Maine community will serve as the judges for this event. In 2014, the museum received over 100 images for consideration.

With the contest’s motto of “Capture Culture,” the museum asks amateur photographers of all ages to participate in the documenting of our world in the 21st Century. Edith Barry, the founder of the Brick Store Museum, was an artist and world traveler. In over 60 years of her travels, she photographed the places she visited ”“ as close as Kennebunk, and as far as Singapore. Now, it’s the public’s turn. What should be captured on film today? One hundred years from now, what images should define our culture and world?

Photographers of all ages are invited to enter up to three photographs. Each entry must consist of a digital image and entry form. Winning photographs, including “Visitor’s Choice,” will be displayed in the museum’s History Showcase in the fall. For more information on the contest and rules, and to print an entry form, visit or call the museum at 985”“4802.
