The Darien Arts Center’s popular smartphone photo contest, Pic Darien, has been extended for entries until March 27th at darienarts.org.
The contest is open to all; there are no age restrictions and contestants are not required to live in Darien. As in previous years, the contest will be judged blindly, without the judges knowing the identity of the contestants, and photos do not need to be taken in Darien.
The 2021 Smartphone Photo Contest, Pic Darien, garnered over 400 entries from all ages and returns in 2022 for its seventh year. Pic Darien 2022 will have eight local judges to select its winners this year. Ben Larrabee, Terrie Wood, Jeffrey Wyant, Tom and Anne Geary, Megan Dey, David Wagner, Kris Barker and Peter Saverine will judge photo entries from both adults and children in the following categories: Landscapes, Seascapes, Nature and Floral, Food and Drink, Abstract and Architecture, Pets, Travel, and Family and Friends.
Participants may enter Pic Darien either as a student (ages 17 and under) or as an adult (ages 18 and over). The fee to enter the contest is $10 per photo. Contestants may enter multiple times. First place cash prizes ($100) will be awarded to students and adults in all categories. Winners will be announced on April 18th at darienarts.org.

The Darien Arts Center is located at 2 Renshaw Road, behind the Darien Town Hall.
