IT'S A SNAP! 2023

SEEKING ASPIRING PHOTOJOURNALIST AND SHUTTERBUG! No matter your level of expertise. Bring it on.

*** Minors (16 and up) are encouraged to participate with parental consent. ***

This year we are looking for what makes Charm City - the PEOPLE. Here’s your chance to share your special photographs that reveal the best of Baltimore. No professional models, please.

Winning photographers receive prizes, and the best images will be showcased on BNHA’s social media channels and a special Baltimore National Heritage Area promotional product in 2024. The Grand Prize Winner will receive a $500 gift card.

Photographs must be taken within the Baltimore National Heritage Area (map). All hi-res entries must be submitted electronically by December 31, 2023. Photos can be in color or black and white.

Why is the contest period so long? We want to give you a chance to capture city life in every season, from Spring to early Winter.

Please read the complete Rules and Requirements before submitting your photo. All entries must be submitted electronically by December 31, 2023.

For a photo in which a person is recognizable, you must secure a model release form the subject or, in the case of a minor, the subject’s parent or guardian and provide it to BNHA upon request. A model release is available on the heritage area’s website. (Click here for the form.)

What are we looking for? It’s Charm City because the people are charming, no matter where you go in Baltimore. Submit your best pic of people - festivals, recreational events, in park. Just having fun!


The Grand Prize Winner will receive a $500 gift card. First place - $400 gift card. Second Place - $300 gift card. Honorable Mention - $50 gift card. Photographers can only win one prize per contest. So submit your best.
