  • Photographers from 13-18 years old are welcome to submit their original photographic artwork. 

  • The work must include a bridge (any bridge) in Olmsted County, MN.

  • Work must be submitted by July 31st, 2022

  • A panel of professional photographers will select 10 finalists. 

    • Finalists' work will be printed, mounted, and displayed in the Rochester Civic Theatre lobby during the run of 'Bridges of Madison County'

    • Finalists will be awarded a ticket to attend the closing performance of 'Bridges' on Sunday August 28th. 

  • Audiences at the musical will vote on the 10 works, and the works receiving the most votes will be awarded:

    • 1st place: $250.00 ​

    • 2nd place: $100.00

    • 3rd place: $50.00
