The City of Charleston’s I Love West Ashley photo contest has a Saturday, March 17 deadline for residents five and older.  There is a $25 entry fee at AccuPhotolab & Studio at 1757 Savannah Highway (near La Fontana restaurant).  Contestants will be given a 27 exposure box camera and will select one image for the competition after the lab develops a proof sheet.

There will be 18 cash awards, ranging from $50 to $150 in the categories of portraits and places.  The portrait category revolves around photos of a person or people, while the places category consists of landmarks and scenery.  First, second and third place awards will be chosen in each category for children (5-17), adults (18 and older) and professional photographers.  Winning entries will be displayed at Citadel Mall Saturday, April 21.

The non-profit group West Ashley United is also a sponsor of the event.  The group was founded in 2015 to promote the West Ashley community.
