The Brick Township Recreation Department is inviting residents to submit their best photos of Brick Township for the Take 5 Photo Challenge. The contest was conceptualized by Council Vice President Lisa Crate, as a way to encourage people to take pride in their hometown.

“There are so many incredible places and people that make Brick special,” said Council Vice President Crate. “This is the perfect opportunity to not only show off your photography skills, but also to celebrate what makes our town exceptional. I’m excited to see the many faces and places that make Brick the best place to live on the Jersey Shore!”

Residents wishing to participate can submit up to five photographs taken in Brick Township. Photographs must be printed out in an 8×10 format, unframed with a matte or gloss finish, and have your name, address and a brief description on the back. All of the submitted photos will be on display at a special gallery night on Thursday, October 18 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. Prizes will be awarded to the photographers of the three best photos.

The Take 5 Photo Challenge is free to participate and is open to residents of all ages. The deadline for submissions is October 1. Submissions can be dropped off at the Brick Recreation Office, located at 270 Chambers Bridge Rd., or mailed to Brick Recreation Department, 401 Chambers Bridge Road, Brick, NJ 08723 ATTN: Take 5 Photo Challenge.
