Photo Fundraiser Idea for Local Museum or Gallery or Library

Photography Contest

Photography Contest can be a great way for your Local Museum or Gallery or Library to get donations. Let the devoutly artistic and undiscovered experimenters show off their skills and, in exchange for an entrance fee, submit their work. Depending on the size and seriousness of your contest, it may be wise to appoint as judges those who are truly qualified to analyze photos.
