Photo Voice Contest 2018.


Alliance for Community Transformations

& Bennington College Present: Photo Voice Contest 2018!

Ever walk by an abandoned lot, all gray cracked concrete, tall grass, and cigarette butts, and thought I wish they would do something with this.  Well now is your chance to be heard– or seen rather.

We want to know what public spaces in Bennington need a makeover, whether its a dirty sidewalk, a neglected park, or a broken bench. We know you have great ideas that sometimes get overlooked.

So we ask: what would YOU turn these spaces into given the chance?

The Contest: Photograph neglected, public areas in and around Bennington and share your vision of that space transformed into one that is fun, substance-free, and accessible to all. In other words: Where would YOU like to hang out?

Rules and Submissions.

This contest is open to all MAUMS and MAUHS students.

Send all submissions to by April 20, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. 

Format your email submission like this:

Grade level,
Town of Residence,

And write a paragraph or two about what you photographed and why. What would you like to see there instead?

Don’t forget to attach your photo.


Finalists and their families will be invited to have their work featured in an open reception at Bennington College’s East Barn Gallery on April 26, 2018 at 5:30 p.m.
