Calling all Photographers!


The Village would like to announce a new seasonal photography competition seeking a photo that represents the very best of the season within the Village of Fairfax, whether that is spring flowers near the water fountain or the car show at the Mainliner.

Please have your photo fit the season you are competing in. 1st -3rd Photo winners will be chosen by the Mayor in the month following the close of the competition season with all submissions due 5 days after the close of the season. A certificate presented at the next Village Council Meeting and your photo featured on the Village’s new Web Page for the following Season are on offer for the best photos of each season and an annual overall winner will also be chosen and announced at the Village’s Chili Cook-off. The Annual winner will receive a certificate at that time as well as being featured in the Municipal Building Shadow Boxes surrounded by the other seasonal winners for the following year.

This competition is open to Fairfax Residents and their direct relations.

Please send all submissions digitally to as well as your Name, Title of your Photo, where the photo was taken and the date the photo was taken.

All Copyrights must be released for all photos submitted for consideration in the competition. Copyright release forms are available below and are to be physically turned into the Village as well as all photos must be of non-human subjects or have included with the submission signed Photo Use Release Forms for all persons depicted in the photo.
