Our Humboldt Photography Contest
Held each year - we want you to tell us what you love about Our Humboldt!  It's simple, all you have to do is show us how your local photos support any or all of the values identified in the Our Humboldt Strategic Plan.

Three winners will have their photo displayed in a six-week exhibit with the Humboldt & District Gallery - so make sure they are high quality - after which they will receive their framed print!  In addition, each winner will receive a Humboldt-themed prize package to acknowledge their creative efforts in capturing our vibrant community.

Winners may also be featured in City of Humboldt marketing materials throughout the year, such as, the Community Guide, website, social media... and more!
