The Carrollton Area Network invites amateur photographers who live, work, worship or attend school in the Carrollton neighborhood of New Orleans to enter its 2014 photo contest. The winning image will be taken during October 2014 and will capture “The Spirit of Carrollton,” such as its people, natural beauty and vistas, recreation, architecture, animals and streetscapes.

The winning photographs in several categories will receive awards and prizes and will be displayed in various public outlets in Carrollton and on the Internet. The “Best in Show” winner’s photo will be screened onto a “Spirit of Carrollton” T-shirt, which will be sold by CAN. All proceeds will be donated to Carrollton area nonprofit organizations.
