#beneaththesurface Photo Contest Update

If you haven’t been closely following all the activity at the Tumblr home of Shorewood Library Teen’s Beneath the Surface Photo Contest, you should be! We already have some pretty incredible submissions.

Yours could be one of them!

How? Simply snap a picture wherever you are, whenever inspiration strikes. Notice what the surface is, what beneath the surface means. Capture it in some meaningful photographic way. And then submit your photo! All you need to do is click “Submit Your Photo Here” on the Tumblr homepage and upload a digital photo from basically anywhere. You do not need to have a Tumblr account to submit your photo through Tumblr. You can also simply email it to However you send it in, be sure to include a short caption telling us about it (where you took it, why, whatever you want to say about it).

The contest ends on July 31. After that, we will examine all of the submissions and choose the winner(s) whose work will be displayed in the library. The winner will also receive a gift certificate to help them pursue their photography dreams!


Photo contest starts today!

In case you missed all the previous buzz about it, the first ever online, teens only, Shorewood Library summer photo contest starts TODAY!

Are you a photographer wannabe? Obsessed with editing images? Attached at the thumb to the camera button on your smart phone? Then hear this: enter the “Beneath the Surface” photo contest for a chance to have your beautiful, unique photography displayed at Shorewood Library for the whole community to see.

How does it work, exactly? It’s online, like I said, which means that all the photos that are submitted must be digital and will be published immediately to a  Tumblr set up just for the photo contest. You can keep track of what you and your friends, and your neighbors, and/or complete strangers are submitting to the contest, comment on your faves (do NOT diss ones you don’t like – no negative comments will be allowed) and get inspired to take your own pictures.

Because the photo contest is online, this means you can also easily submit your photo, along with caption, right to the Tumblr where the photo contest lives online: If that’s not how you want to submit, email your photo to Multiple entries are very much welcome, but please submit one photo at a time!

Happy snapping!
