The Lewes Chamber of Commerce is partnering with Lewes in Bloom, The Lewes Historical Society, Lewes Parks & Recreation Commission, the Zwaanendael Museum and the Historic Lewes Farmers Market to present the fifth annual Lewes Tulip Festival, blossoming on April 10 - 12, 2014. A popular component of the festival is the photography contest. Photos are submitted for judging in five categories – Lewes Architecture, Lewes Landscapes, Quintessential Lewes (subject matter that is uniquely Lewes), Tulips (images must be photographed in the Lewes geographic area) and Lewes Food. The cost to enter the contest is $5 per submission with a maximum of five entries per photographer. Monetary awards will be made for first, second and third place in each of the five subject categories. The judges are all professional photographers and chamber members. Additionally, visitors to the photography exhibit will have the opportunity to select their favorite photograph and the winner will be awarded a special ribbon at the 2 p.m. ceremony on April 12. The Grand Prize winner will receive a cash prize of $100 from the chamber. Entries will be accepted beginning March 3 at the Chamber’s visitor center in the Fisher-Martin House at 120 Kings Highway. Deadline for entry is March 26 and the awards will be presented April 12 at 2 p.m. For entry rules and more information, call the Chamber at 645-8073. The photographs will be on display in Zwaanendael Park on April 10- 12 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
