13th Annual Westchester County Amateur Photo Contest
May 2 - June 14, 2022
Sponsored by the Greenburgh Library Guild, the Greenburgh Public Library is pleased to host the 13th Annual Westchester County Amateur Photo Contest.
The exhibit/contest was originally conceived by Howard Jacobs. Mr. Jacobs was the President of the Library Board of Trustees for many years. He was a high school principal and photography teacher. He and his family sponsored the contest/exhibit the first twelve years of the contest. We thank Mr. Jacobs for his vision and leadership.
This year's contest/exhibit is made possible by a very generous gift to the Greenburgh Library Guild by David and Susan Pomeranz.
If you are interested in purchasing any of the photographs please e-mail Cory Deitchman at email@example.com. He will put you directly in touch with the photographer. Any sales are to take place between the buyer and the photographer.
