Entries are being accepted for the 43rd state Assembly District’s annual photography competition, according to Assemblywoman Laura Friedman (D-Glendale). Her district also covers Burbank.

This will be the competition’s second year. The 2018 competition brought in more than 100 submissions and concluded with a gallery event in Glendale’s historic Adams Square Mini Park.

Winners of the competition will have their artworks displayed in the state’s Capitol as well as Friedman’s district offices, according to competition organizers.

Photographers of all ages and levels of proficiency may submit entries. Photographs will be judged anonymously by a panel of professional photographers.

The works will be scored on their ability to capture the story of the artist’s neighborhood and community.
