The Calvert Marine Museum invites you to participate in a photography contest entitled “Museum In Focus.” We are looking for interesting or unusual or animated photographs that capture the essence of the Calvert Marine Museum. The winning entry will become the official postcard for the museum. The deadline for receipt of entries is August 31, 2007.

Submitted photos may depict anything that falls under the auspices of the Calvert Marine Museum, including off site facilities (Lore Oyster House and the Cove Point Lighthouse), programs, and special events. Selected entries will be exhibited in the museum lobby where visitors will be invited to vote for their favorite image. The winning photograph, along with those receiving honorary mention, will be announced on the evening of October 5, 2007 as part of the annual Patuxent River Appreciation Days celebration. The winning photograph will become the official CMM postcard, with appropriate photo credit given, and the photographer will receive 100 copies of the postcard and a one-year family membership to the museum.

The contest is open to all. Photos may be submitted in digital, slide or print format, although a hard copy must be enclosed. All entrants must agree that the Calvert Marine Museum has the right to use their submission for publication, promotional or any other related purpose without compensation or further permission.

To receive entry forms and full contest rules, please contact the Calvert Marine Museum at 410-326-2750, e-mail or visit
