In 2020, during some of the worst turbulence of the COVID-19 crisis, the Mill Valley Arts Commission‘s annual Click Off Photography Competition, which sends photographers of all ages and ability throughout Marin County to capture images in one of four categories, showed that it was not going to be among those events that took a year off because of the pandemic.

The event, which turned 20 in 2018, is back once again with a quartet of new categories, which will be randomly chosen by Recreation staff following the “Click Off Kick Off, “ which will be held via Zoom on Tuesday, October 18th at 6pm. Registered participants will be informed of their randomly selected category and image upload instructions via email on Thursday, October 20th by 3pm.

Participants of this photography competition will capture images pertaining to one of four subject categories within Marin County during the dates of October 20th through November 3rd, 2022.

Participants will have until midnight, November 3rd to upload their selected digital image that best represents their subject category.

Applicants Will Be Divided Into 3 Different Age Ranges:

  • Youth (10yrs & under)
  • Young Adult (11yrs – 17yrs)
  • Adult (18yrs & over)

Competition fee:

  • 15yrs & under – $15
  • 16yrs – 61yrs – $25
  • 62yrs & over – $15

The Best in Show, 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners in each age range will have their winning image displayed on a lamp post banner along Miller Ave. for the month of January 2023. Once the lamp post banners have been taken down, they will be given to the winning photographers as a memento of their competition win!
