Garden club photo contest nears end

The Wilton Garden Club's "Discover Outdoor Wilton" photography contest, which began April 1, closes on Saturday, Oct. 20.

Entries will be accepted at the Gilbert & Bennett Cultural Center Oct. 10-20.

The contest, open to photographers of all ages, aimed to inspire residents to photograph Wilton in different seasons and locations. All entries will be displayed at the cultural center in Georgetown during November.

A panel of five judges will select 12 photographs to earn a place in the 2013 Discover Outdoor Wilton calendar, available for sale in December. Proceeds will go towards the club's renovation of its greenhouse at Comstock Community Center.

Contest entries may be black and white or color and must be matted. There is no size limitation.

The 12 winning photos will be announced at the opening night reception on Thursday, Nov. 1, 7 to 9, at the center. Brochures, including entry forms, are available in stores in Wilton Center.
